Today was the day. I decided to go out without any covering on my head. I stepped out my home with my head held high, got into my car and drove to a department store. I sat in the car a little while and got up the nerve to get out and go in. What a relief! No one gasped or took a double take. Everyone I encountered were very pleasant and cordial. Well, I passed that test. My next test was to pick up my college age daughter and go to shopping (to the mall). The same experience happened at the mall, no one cared what I looked like. I told my daughter that this was the first time that I came out the house without anything on my head and she told me that she was so proud of me and that I was beautiful. Thank you God!

I am not my hair!!!

Wow!!! You go Angela. Please pass some of your courage & fearlessness over to me. I want to get to this stage but I feel like I just don't have the right shape of head to go bald & beautiful. I am so glued (literally) to my lace systems. I love hair to the point I am obsessed with it. Thinking about it, I have always been that way even prior to Alopecia. I do walk around at home on the weekends bald, which call letting my head air out from the lace units.

I'm so happy for you! I was never that brave. You look very pretty by the way and I'm not just saying that. When you do it, always wear it with confidence like you meant to do it that way. Peach and blessings...

Thanks ladies for your comments.
It has been a long journey for me and my number 1 supporter was my sister June. She kept telling me you are beautiful and you would be a beautiful bald woman. I was afraid to let what hair I had left go and kept wearing my lace fronts. Well, as only God knows how to work his wisdom, she sent me a link to Bald Black Beauties. After I viewed the website, I shaved my head and added my picture to their site. That was step one. Step two was changing my profile picture on facebook, which was done two weeks after I shaved my head. Step three was finally stepping out into the world. I feel so much better and my sister cried when she saw me for the first time bald and said my God you are beautiful.
