A couple of days ago a friend from elementry school messaged me on facebook, hadnt talked to him in years. While we were talking he asked about my lack of hair. When i told him what my situation was he said," Wow really you always had such beautiful hair, i had no idea." makes me cry to think about it sometimes. I really miss my beautiful long hair and now that my eyebrows are gone and my eyelashes are going, it makes me really thankful that i didnt loose all my hair when i was in high school. High school was really hard for me and i had a lot of problems with people being really mean to me in school. If i had been bald i cant imagine how much harder it would have been.

I feel your pain Sheena and i too miss my long thick hair. Its scary to think of how school would have been with kids slagging us off, but to be honest adults arent any better! I use to have people stare at me and id be wondering what they were thinking, its sad and the most difficult thing to deal with and ive been through alot in my life but believe this is the worst to cope with. x

I can tell u it's no fun when u lose your hair as a child, I was nine when mine started to come out, I was teased to the point were I didn't want to go to school I wanted to die, some how I got threw it and as an adult it's just as hard, people ask why I wear wigs what happened that I don't have hair, i have very low self esteam bec of it.

I feel for children with alopecia that have to go to school because other kids can be so cruel. I did not experience my hair loss until I was 19. There are days that I miss my hair.

I very much miss mine, too! Complete strangers used to complement me on it, and I actually had one ask me what shampoo I used because my hair was so beautifully shiny. Now I just want to hide my head. I constantly think how awful it would have been to have hair loss at a young age and live in constant fear for my young son's head of hair. :-(

I miss mine too. It wasn't all that beautiful, but I did have this unique white streak of hair that everyone called my "beauty mark". I miss that.
