thank you.  I am still amazed at the number of people with alopecia.  when I was 7 ,  I thought there was no one else like me anywhere.  I am now almost 60 and still no hair.  it tried a few times but always fell out.  I get silly peach fuzz that defies the law of gravity,  I am an, all or nothing person so ....shave it off....better to be shiney than silly.

I have given up trying to have hair,  but still think it would be great if they could come up with something to help....

Thanks. I only wish I had access to others in my area (Milwaukee WI.) who had this condition. There are no more suuport groups around here. But thats alright. I did not go to many anyways when there were. My (life long) quest is to try to inform people (on a rare occassion) (who dont have this) here in my real world, what it's about.

Thank you. I've gotten to where I don't cry as hard as I used to, but it's very depressing. I'll get there one day.

I hope you received my last comment. Last time I tried to send a private message to someone on here the website wouldn't let me. I had written so much and didn't want to write it over so I posted it where everyone could see. I never heard back from her. Maybe you would rather communicate through my private e-mail?
