I feel like everyone has an opinion more so those who do not have Alopecia, one person told me "I don't like you with wigs it doesn't look natural, so don't wear the wig, there's no reason to cover…Continue

Trichodynia - Scalp pain

Trichodynia is a condition where the patient experiences a painful sensation on their scalp. The pain sometimes is described as burning. Often there is an underlying psychosomatic cause, such as stress, depression or anxiety.

I guess I do get insecure about my alopecia. The stares that come with the bald patches. Instead of asking, people just stare. I wish they would just ask.

I don't mind sharing what I look like, patches and all. But with people I don't know; it can be a little intimidating. I rather wear my hat, wig, or scarf.

I took a picture of my head to see how it was and hikers.

I want to get to know you, a nice man or woman!

I am looking to get to know either a nice man or a woman. Friendship is great and if it gets to be more than friendship that's fine, but, one step at a time. I am a very open and accepting individual, I don't judge. I am the kind of person that if it doesn't work or as a relationship I would love to remain friends.

I am honest and I hope you will be honest with me. I am here to listen and hope you'll listen to me.

Other treatments for alopecia besides injections in the head?

First of all may I say "Ouch" when it comes to the injections in your head. I am going to a new dermatologist for the first time and am looking for other solutions besides getting shots in my head. As these were very painful it was the first and last time I will be getting injections in my head.

Any thoughts or suggestions on other treatments and or alternative treatments! Please get back to me! I would rather be bald than go through that…


Free to be!

I wish there was a moment where all people with all types of Alopecia could unite, people who have a lot of hair, some hair, or no hair. To just be free to be us. To walk down a street, all of us, taking off our wigs, our hats, our scarves, whatever we have on, to show who we are and what we have, and for some it may be to show what we hide.

Whether you shave your head or not.

Our unique beauty, taking off our coverings would not be for other people or for eachother but, for…

Hi thanks for checking back in on me! I don't have a computer so maybe that's why I can't get on main chat with my iPhone.
I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage! It just wasn't meant to be at that time! Are you going to try again? I can't imagine how you feel! I have two sons. 24 and 26. And two granddaughters. My kids have always been my whole life! Thank God for them when I first lost my hair. They kept me focused on what they needed! A strong mommy!
I'll say a prayer that you have a child someday!!
