Last Weekend I decided to show my boyfriend what I look like when I am bald because he was getting frustrated about me crying because I have alopecia. He has always told me that he didn't care that I had alopecia, he only cared about how it made me feel. Sometimes I know that its hard for others to have empathy for what I'm going through everyday but they can be sympathetic. I only want to feel good about myself and I can't always because all I can think about is not having my own hair that I was born with. I have a photo in my room of what I looked like in high school; when I had my own hair. My boyfriend said I should take the photo down and take a recent picture of myself and put it up. That way, I can focus on who I am now instead of focusing on the past.
