First of all, I want to say that everyone on this site is such a wonderful and beautiful person both inside and out.
So folks, I am not totally bald (I know I need a picture, but my husband hates taking them and I hate asking). I guess I have felt that having really thin hair on top is both a curse and a blessing all the same. I mean since I have eyelashes and eyebrows I am not as susceptible to illness, but also people still question me about why I wear a wig and what kind of illness I have and all of the time the person asking is wondering if I am undergoing chemo. So I am pouring my heart out to all of you and those who know more about these issues.
Is there different types of Alopecia? I mean I have heard of the term of male pattern baldness and yes that pretty much defines what I have, but it is quite upsetting for a girly-girl to be told she has male pattern baldness. No matter what they call it, I think of it as quite a bother and really just want to feel feminine. I guess that part is all about mind set really, because hair or no hair no one or nothing can change what we know about ourselves and in our own hearts.
Thanks for listening and let me know if you have a more accurate term than male pattern baldness for the type of hair loss I am describing. ~ Danna
