You are so inspirational my daughter is 8 and a half she has alopecia universalis you are amazing. Our daughter most days doesnt mind not having hair but some days are different. I can only hope that she has your attitude at your age. She hates wigs loves hats and bandanas and we never make her feel that she has to look like everyone else. Keep up your fantastic attitude you are amazing and more people need to be as confident as you!!

Sorry it took so long to reply Amber.
Thank you for offering to talk to Jon if he ever needs it. Thats very kind of you.
It is good that your family is supportive. Family is so important isn't it. Some people don't get that till later in life.
How has your week been?
BTW I love your photos. You are beautiful.
Thanks Amber. I'll tell him. I wish that he would join in discussions and that here on this site. I think it would make a big difference to how he feels about himself.
Do you have good support in the way of family and friends? Do you have a support group to go to?
Thanks for the friend request
Welcome to Alopecia World. Hope that you enjoy being a member on this site.
My son Jon, 13, has had Alopecia since he was 6. He has just recently developed AU. He has lost his eyebrows and is slowly losing his lashes. He is not interested in tatts or wigs. He wears a bandana in summer and a beanie in winter.
He is finding it hard coping as a teenager.
How are you going? Do you find it hard at school?
