I'm new to the site. About 18 months to 2 years ago I noticed that my eyebrows were receding and I developed bald spots on my head. After about 6 months of this my chest, arms and legs were also becoming decreasingly hairy. It took over a year for all the hair on my head to fall out and I have now lost pretty much all body hair, including eyelashes.
I don't know anybody else with alopecia and feel whenever I talk to other people, though they are generally supportive, I can't help but think they can't actually understand what I am going through. Some days I can feel myself getting very down about it, other days I am much more like my usual self.
I would like to meet new people with similar experiences.
