Well i wrote a while back that my hair was falling out for a 2nd time and was praying it would eventually stop! Well its still coming out and ive lost alot now and have more patches, it is now getting difficult to hide it and im so paranoid when im out in the wind. i have been and picked a wig for just incase it gets worse but i really dont feel ready to do this again, i dont want to shave my hair off if it keeps falling out even know its better to, i dont want to wear a wig again, i dont want to have to deal with this shit i really dont. I have been going to counselling for the last 5 wks now and its really good although its more about what ive been through in my life and its also good timing that my hair is coming out now as i can get support this time. My counsellor suggested writing a letter about my alopecia and seeing what comes up and then if i wanted to we could discuss it. I'm going on holiday in 5wks time and i would love to have my own hair still and not have to worry about head scarfs or my wig as i couldnt wear in pool ect!! Im just so bloody fed up with this just now. HATE IT!!!

Alopecia is a really hard journey. Your not in denial many of us feel this way. Your therapist is right, you should sit down and write down all your feelings, Only share it if you feel like it. Writing helps me a lot. Good luck

It can be actually it is extremely tought to write down and anaylize your inner feelings that are hurting you; and especially if you are not the type who crys. After you finish writing everything out you will feel as if a huge block has been lifted off your chest. Listen to music that calms you or go to a pretty park if you like pretty places. Sorry if I sound to much like a shrink my friends tell me i do that some time. Try to keep your head up.

No problem I am also on my way to accepting it and the advice I gave you is partly from me and partly from advice my shrinks gave me. Glad I a am helping.

Thanks for ur kind messages i know i will get through this but it will take alot of time. I was with my counsellor 2night but not always talking about alopecia and its amazing all the other stuff thats coming up but hopefully this will make me even stronger to deal with it xx

Funny how counseling can bring up your own values for yourself as a gentle reminder of who you really are. Alopecia makes us push a lot of things into secret spots while we are in shock over the obvious. Those little things can grow, and need WEEDING OUT if they are negative, and FRESH AIR if they are positive!
