I have been a busy bee these last couple of years. I started a federally recognized non profit organization for youth writers. I was laid off. I went back to school and completed the program with a 4.0 GPA. My first born graduated high school. Traveled out West for the first time last year and I will be going back again soon. Got certified as a Personal Trainer. Lost some weight. Hustling to pay bills off...it's working. Still married to the BEST man ever, he's so sexy:) Being mommy and wife, friend, sister and daughter.

Ok, so I'm wiping the sweat away from my forehead. LOL! Busy indeed but the one thing I find time to do is talk and still educate others about Alopecia. I offer my support when ever anyone needs me too.

So for the update on my hair today gone tomorrow hair...

I have hair but the same old spots on the side and in the back. So I have fun with it. Who truely believes that ones outcome about any situation is based upon the attitude you decide to have about the situation. I have grown to love my spots and accept that they may be there for the rest of my life. I just have to work around them and try different things. The one thing that I refuse to do is wear a wig. Been there done that...

Let me explain. It felt like when I wore a wig I would leave the house as a different person (my alter ego I guess) but coming back home and taking it off just brought me pain all over again because I was taking it off to reveal the real me. The REAL me...someone I apparently had a problem showing everyone else. So I felt as if I was a fake...that's just me and how I felt. Therefore, the last time my hair fell out I said to myself that I would go out as Julia and return as Julia. Hard thing to do but I did it and I'm happy I did because you now get all of me.

Continue to LOVE you totally despite thereof. When others see you holding your head high the way you are, they will have no choice but to commend and respect you for just dealing with "LIFE".

Peace and Light!

Just want you to know that seeing your photographs, then ordering and reading your book gave me the additional boost of courage I needed to do this! :D
