Where acceptance is all there is
I am a 34 year old male who has alopecia universalis. In my early twenties I was in a car accident which seemed to trigger alopecia. Within months I was completely hairless. It was a very difficult transition for me. I had trouble dealing with the change as well as self esteem issues. I would become angry if someone stared at me or asked questions relating to my new appearance.
That is now old news. I am thankful for alopecia. It has helped me learn to deal with change in my life. I am a much happier and healthier person today. I don't have to deal with self absorbed illusions of vanity, and have accepted the way things are as a gift. It has given me a great sense of gratitude and taught me a lesson of patience. All those struggling with alopecia, look at it from another perspective. You are unique. You are loved. You are alive. You are you.
