I was thinking about quiting track because I wasn't ready to hear other schools talk about me.They don't know my condition since they don't go to my school.I broke the high school record for the 3200m last year so when my coach found out I didn't want to do track this year he found me and told me I need to do it I'm really good and I have a chance so I decided to do track this year.Tuesday was our 1st track meet and everybody thought I was a boy! I was so hurt my dad just keeps telling people wish they has ur alopecia I'm greatful for what I got but he doesn't understand it still hurts being called a boy :( and I also lost my event I got last and I didn't break jack!I just got my feeling hurt now I'm really regreating doing track.

You are too beautiful for anyone to think your a boy. Don't waste any time on haters. You should definitely keep doing track. It will make you proud and stronger. You can do this. The alternative sucks. Who wants to hide from people?

There's a very strange thing about the human mind where it seems easier to believe what some people say about us over what we believe about ourselves. Sure the road we're on is not conventional but it wasn't our choice, if you love track keep doing it. Please don`t give up on the things you love and enjoy because of what people might say. People will always find something to talk about or comment about whether it`s someone`s big nose, weight, cloths etc. The important thing is how you see and feel about yourself, if you stay true to that people will follow. Always remember you're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. There will always be someone who has something to say but your part of a new breed changing the way the world views beauty everywhere, we`re h&h (hot and hairless).

You're beautiful, with or without hair-all of us are. Don't let others who are ignorant of what we have stop you from doing something you love. I was a full time dancer since I was 3, but stopped when I lost all of my hair a year ago because I didn't want people knowing. I found that I became more depressed, and I was letting AA control my life. Just focus on the people around you that matter, I know it hurts sometimes but you are definitely not alone!

Don't worry you are not the only one I have been called a boy many many times. Just remember you are beautiful and if anyone tells you something else just remember that only your opinion matters and that you are not the only one.

Hey, hun. Sadly, many people are mean and don't know any better. The girls are right. People would always find a way to bring you down, whether it's your hair or other things. By letting them get to you, you're letting them win. Please, don't. Please, continue doing track and show them that you are strong and beautiful. They might have hair but they don't have heart like you do. Hugs! :-)

You're beautiful girly, people can be mean to anyone. don't beat yourself up definitely do not stop doing something you love because of mean people . because if you do that all those mean people win and that is when you lose. my daughter was recently diagnosed with AA and i would absolutely love it to see her confident
