This is all new for me. I was recently diagnosed with Alopecia Areata about 4 months ago. I couldnt believe it, Im the kind of person that loved doing my hair, and getting it coloured, and all that girly stuff. Now, the only thing I do with my hair, is try desperately to cover up my bald spots, which is impossible now.
I think Im still in denial. I still believe that maybe my hair will grow back, which it hasnt. I still think that maybe this is just a dream, and Im going to wake up from this nightmare any day..
My family, has tried to convince me to at least cut my hair so i can transition into a wig better later on, but Im too scared to go to a hair dresser - What if people stare?
My poor boyfriend has to watch me have daily meltdowns, because I think he'll leave me once, im completely bald..which by the looks of it, I will be.
i want to get over this, and be as empowering as all of you gorgeous people, but Im having a hard time. I see women with gorgeous hair and I want that. I want to go back in time and just have my hair, or I wish I could be as accepting as everyone else.
