I have battling with alopecia since my early 20s. I continue to wear wigs because I’ve been embarrassed and a shamed for losing my hair. I decided to post this picture to help me face reality because I’m not alone. For a woman that is a very hard thing to accept , I have decided when I turn 50 I would no longer wear wigs but I move to Arizona that heat might make me change my mind LOL. I am 48 years old I single mother of four children, Hard-working person with a huge heart. The main thing I need to learn is love and accept myself and not worry about what people think

Amen!  I still believe the best cure at the moment is self-acceptance.  You look radiant!
