I have never before joined a site like this but I am encouraged to see how beautiful and open so many of you are about having no hair and flaunting it! I hope to be there someday! I am a Mom of two beautiful kids a wife to a loving husband, hair or no hair, and a career woman. I have had AA my whole life but never noticeable to the outside as it was always in places that could be covered and always grew back. After the birth of my first child it became AT and I struggled so much with this transformation. I spent a fortune on wigs and the majority of people had no idea that I have no hair, it took me a very long time to share with my friends my story and after I had told them what a relief...I still can't be seen without something on my head around them but just not having to plan every move in fear of seeing someone out and about without my wig on lifted such a weight off of my shoulders. My next hurdle is the work crowd - I have had wigs and constantly have people coming up to me asking where I get my hair done and literally taking pictures on their phones so they can show their hair dressers!! It makes me laugh everytime it happens but I just want to have enough guts to say...actually it is the Raquel Welch line of wigs -you too could have hair like this! Although this stupid auto immune disorder doesn't usually get me down I have come to stumbling block and thus the reason for joining this group...I am starting to lose my brows and lashes and I cry every time I look in the mirror! I know that I will get past this as I did the day that I shaved thew few straggaly hairs off the top of my head and felt liberated but this is tough. Any thoughts on tatoos and good options for lashes? Thanks for reading.
