It's incredible how many beautiful women just like me are on here! I'm always resisting participating in Alopecia themed things but this is really helping me. You don't realize how isolating this condition can be. Everyone struggles with confidence and self-esteem but with a visible condition like Alopecia it can be amplified and cause a big time distorted self image. In short I like understanding that I'm not the only "freak" and I mean that in the kindest way possible and am only speaking for myself.
