Thank you so much for responding to my post. I have not been on AlopeciaWorld for a couple years now. I am just "coming out" and sharing my alopecia with the world after 50some years of being bald! Sheesh! What took me so long? =)
I am truly inspired by knowing you have written a book for those like us! I saw another woman on here who has written a children's book. I am putting up a blog website very soon called creatingmyhappy.com. It should be up and running within a week or so. I plan to stay more closely connected with alopecia world in the future.
Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I only developed AU 2 years ago having lost all my hair in a short space of time (10 days). I haven't had any treatment as yet but am starting cyclosporine tomorrow! :) xx
Hello, Leslie! Thank you for your message. I read your profile. You have had AU a long time! I am 2 years completely haur free. Some days are good and some are really bad. Ehat has helped you cope with it all?

Hi LeslieAnn, thanks for asking how I'm doing! My response may sound weird, but I am trying to breathe deep and embrace everything in my life right now. Losing my hair is a constant I would rather not have in my life, but I am thankful it's my hair and not something more serious. I imagine I will be picking out a wig within the year. Your book looks interesting. Thanks again for asking how I'm doing. I hope you are doing well! Sarah
Thanks for reaching out! I feel like I have everything under control except the damned eyelashes! Do you have any recommendations? I've had eyebrows and eyeliner tattood on, but I'd sure love to have lashes. False eyelash strips are so messy and such a pain in the morning!
Other than that, I've accepted my AU pretty well. It does have its advantages :)
Thanks for your response to my comment this morning. I feel very strongly indeed that the best support for a woman going through the frequently nightmarish situation that is FFA is from others who have experienced it.
My background is in children's services and I have used coaching techniques and so on. Would happily get involved in some sort of support service - even if it is only online.
Hello. Thank you! I'm very glad I found this sire. Wish I knew it existed years ago. I'm about to start wearing a topper. Should have it in the next couple of weeks. I'm a little nervous about it but also excited as I think it will make me feel more comfortable going out. How has your experience with wearing wigs been? You looks so beautiful in your pictures.
Hi! Thanks :) I am doing pretty well. I am learning a lot more about being confident and am definitely feeling encouraged by reading posts and people's profiles on here. I'm glad I found you and will look into your book for more of your story.
Hello, again! I was just looking at your Bio, and you are beautiful! Your book has shipped, so I should be reading it very soon. Can you tell me the brand and "name" of the wig you are wearing in your Bio? ~ Beth
