And it seems to be Round 2 of Alopecia. It seems harder this time than the first time around. Everyone keeps saying that it is easy this time because I know what to expect and I already have wigs. But, for some reason, I'm having a harder time with it and don't feel like I can tell anyone that I am having a harder time. Is that stupid?

Well, heres where I stand as of now. I started noticing it coming out in the shower about a week and a half ago....

Oh dear. It does look like round two. I am finishing up (I hope) round 1 (which looks very similar now to your pictures). I have a lot of regrowth, though much is fine and sparse. I do live in dread of having a repeat. Can't possibly be as devastating and shocking and life-stopping all consuming as it was the first time, but has to be down right depressing. Will you start with the wigs while you still have hair? How much time in between? Sorry you are going through this! I HATE this disease!

This is a cruel condition. I have most of my hair back but can't enjoy it because I worry about it happening again. I wish I had words of wisdom to help you through it.

Oh I am sorry, I just read your last post. A very good friend of mine has recently started a recent round of Alopecia, and there seems to be no trigger for any of her episodes. This is the third time for her.

The coming and going is the hardest. Even though knowing what to expect, many things are different in our lifestyle, friends, work, school from year to year...so in a way it's dealing with a variation on a theme and it is different each time. Go easy on yourself, too. There's nothing wrong with you and nothing to be ashamed of that the emotions and adjustment are different than before. It's tricky to explain to other people, though.

Oh no. That's so sad!!! I'm in the exact same situation. My hair regrew and I even went to a hairdresser. A week ago I noticed that my hair is falling out again. I'm so so so so so sad about it and it'S alot harder for me now. Maybe BECAUSE I know what to expect. I loved it not to wear a wig!!!

Have you tried to get any treatments at all? It may help you. I hope that you get through this and you will. It's just a stupid condition, I wish that I could help you! Why does it come back?! I hate it! Please try not to stress and take care of yourself. I wish you all the best! Melissa

I had alopecia once after around the age of 20 and it lasted for a little over a year, thats not mentioning the time it took to grow bacl. I always had long hair, after my alopecia my hair got about to my shoulders. Then I found a bald spot, and now I am at about 7 bald spots. So I am in my round 2 also. I feel it is harder this time too. Like you said you know what to expect. I tried to keep my head high the first time, and I tried to stay hopefull. It lasted so long, I just don't want to go through it all over again. So I know how you feel.
