Hi Alexis, not going to lie dating at first was very hard, I was so scared in the beginning to tell a guy about me having Alopecia. I usually waited atleast two months to feel the guy out. I think I might have been rejected by one guy, of course I was upset and depress, but then I starting thinking his lost not mines. College was hard my freshman year due to the fact I was living on campus, and I was attending a HBCU, and sometimes we has black folks put some much on hair. It was hard at first, but I made great friends who loved me for who I was.
I also had a great support system with my mom. If you ever need to talk to me feel free to hit me up anytime.
Yes, Alexis, my eyebrows and lashes came back last year and stayed for about 8 months...even though I tried not to get "attached" to them, I was really down when they fell out again. I've decided that the only way I can deal with this disease is to just try not to have any hopes or thoughts about getting hair back. But, I still have dreams about it!
I get all those comments from people, too, and I agree they can be aggravating. All the time, people tell me what a beautifully-shaped head I have! None of that really helps. But, I have to admit that I use the "it could be worse" on myself. I have several friends who have cancer, and I keep asking myself "what would a woman with cancer give to ONLY have alopecia areata?"
Just saw your post - "sick of being bare faced and bald :-'( "
I know how you're feeling. It really sucks. When I was losing my eyebrows and eyelashes, I got really depressed. But, I got through it. Hang in there and stay in touch with your friends here on AW. Mary
