It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
Hi, my name is Crissy. In August 2013 I noticed a patch missing in my hair, went straight to the doctor, did all the medical tests and diagnosed my with Alopecia A. and then sent me on my way not able to help with anything or give me advice or coping strategies. Every strand of hair I lost came with fear, tears and confusion. Does anyone really know what alopecia is and how to make it stop? I now have almost complete baldness, my eyebrows and the rest of the hair on my body keep disappearing. From my research I think I may have universalis. Will it ever grow back? How does everyone cope? I have been wearing hats and bought wigs, I don't really like wigs it doesn't feel like me, but I can't strut my baldness. I have a bit of hair left and I think I may just shave it off on Saturday with help from my friends if I can stand showing my head. I have a great man in my life I explained my situation to him and he seems understanding but can he really accept my baldness? I was thinking of getting him to shave it for me and he was happy to be the one to do it. Is this a good Idea? My friend who did have alopecia gave me this website to help, her hair however did grow back but is there hope for me? How long does it take to grow back? who do I talk to? Does anyone know if homeopathic medical work at all? I would love to hear from anyone on this site and talk to anyone about your alopecia and how you are doing with it and how to make it less scary! I have never been to confident, I have always been shy. I would love to hear your story!
