Year 2000 i graduated high school and this coming year i start college lol a little late but ohwell :O) the emotional rollercoaster i have gone thru over hair is amazing but i have found this site and it helps knowing i'm not the only one.
The reason for my post is to hope that everyone who either is new to alopecia or has had it for years can finally if you havent already move even closer to acceptance not from those around us but self acceptance. We will have our bad days even people with hair will have those but we have got to move forward. We didnt do anything wrong, we know we didnt ask for this, and there was no warning sign when this hit us. but there was a quote i saw that stated "we are born to live ,not to prepare for life" and its so true.
My biggest fear for all of us young and old is that we are so busy wrapped up about our hair that we miss out on life itself.
I dont have inspirational words or any new revelations to reveal , all i just wanted to say that as the clock strikes midnight hug yourself, smile at yourself and leave behind all the negativity from the past decade, the stares and comments people may have said, the lost relationships and jobs, and even the suicidal thoughts you may have felt.
May this new year be your start over, and may we all love ourselfs for who we are and move on to a better tommorrow.
thank you for your time
