About Me:
I'm trying to live happily with alopecia...I do wear wigs but my goal is to be able to go without and not worry about what others will think or say; however, I have other goals to reach before I can get to that point. I first developed AA in 1989 at 21 years of age and dealt with it on and off until 1992 when it was so bad I had to resort to wigs. After many torturous steroid injections my hair grew back enough to where I was able to cover any spots I might've still had and lose the wigs all together. Fast forward to 1998 when it started all over again. I've been in wigs ever since with no hope of ever having my hair back. My husband and I ride a motorcycle and it's my dream one day to not care what anyone says about a bald head underneath the helmet.
I've been married to my husband since 2002 and he's never minded the fact that I was blessed with so much scalp (ha!), he's been really great actually, always encouraging me to go bald and be proud.
I have lived in Nashville since 1989 but was born and raised in Maryville, TN at the foothills of the Smokey Mountains (aka) God's Country!
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Breakthru moment...

I just wanted to let ya know that the last few times the hubby and I went riding on the motorcycle, I only wore a bandana/scarf under the helmet instead of some type of hair. I did wear some type of t-shirt that referenced the "baldness". I've worn my Bald is Beautiful shirt, my Bald Hottie shirt (while my husband wore his I'm with the Bald Hottie shirt) and then I also wore my Alopecia Areata~Look it Up shirt. SO, I know I will get to the point that I can go hair-less withouth having to wear a shirt related to the baldness; but for right now, it helps me with my comfort zone.

Also, I've been walking outdoors and I only wear bandanas then, sometimes with or without a hat. It's so much cooler that way.

I CAN beat this!

I had an interesting, yet not surprising, thing happen to me while out for a fun night a couple of weeks ago. My husband and I had gone out to listen to a live band and have a few drinks and enjoy a cool breeze on the lake. I went with my bandana under a baseball hat combo and was really enjoying the music and night out. The band had finished it's first set and my husband got up to use the restroom while I sat at the table taking in the fresh air. I looked around and noticed a man walking… Continue

Getting alot easier

I've been feeling a lot more comfortable going out and about in my bandanas/scarves. I have not yet went completely uncovered (that's the next step) but what I have done is a major thing and I don't feel as self conscious as I used to. I do get all kinds of looks, but that's to be expected. I'm going out with the expectation of anything happening so that I won't be completely taken by surprise if something does happen, or something is said. As long as I have my attitude in the right place I… Continue
