One month (+ 7 days) since diagnosis

I just wanted to put up some more recent pictures of my head. As you can see, there isn't much left to my eyebrows or eyelashes. It has been a little over one month since we noticed the first small spots in the back and was diagnosed. Holy cow...this thing has moved quickly. I'm home now, back in Chicago, for some time until Galveston is back up and running since the hurricane. I have an appointment with my dermatologist here this week as a second opinion. I also am going to meet with a woman to discuss the vacuum sealed Freedom Wigs. Big week!!

These pictures are with my wig, drawn on eyebrows, eyeliner to look like eyelashes, and $5 fake glasses from Claire's to keep dust and doghair out of my eyes.

Dear Rachel
it's a bummer having alopecia isn't it- my hair all fell out- then re grew back for 18 months then went again- so now I am at the wig stage- I hated the time it took to fall out- so in a way it's better when it is all gone instead of falling out in handfulls when you are in the shower - hang in there life improves as you get used to it- and you look great with your wig and glasses !
