About Me:
I lost every hair on my head in august of 2008. I am a fem lesbian & It has been extremly hard for me like everyone else. My hair has grown back - it is very short, but it is there. I have little bald spots on my head still, but nothing that anyone could see, although my hair is very white which I have 2 color constantly. I have fun with it now and go the range in colors. I have learned that ur hair doesn't define who u r, nor bring u happiness.

Have a great day, y’all!!

If you don't laugh out loud after you read this you are in a coma! This is even funnier when you realize it's real! Next time you have a bad day at work think of this guy.
Rob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana . He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs.
Below is an E-mail he sent to his sister. She then sent it to radio station 103.2 on FM dial in Ft. Wayne , Indiana , who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest. Needless to say, she won.

Hi Sue, Just another note from your bottom-dwelling brother.
Last week I had a bad day at the office. I know you've been feeling down lately at work, so I thought I would share my dilemma with you to make you realize it's not so bad after all.
Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first must bore you with a few technicalities of my job.
As you know, my office lies at the bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It's a wet suit. This time of year the water is quite cool. So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater.
This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temperature.
It then pumps it down to the diver through a garden hose, which is taped to the air hose. Now this sounds like a darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints.
What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wet suit. This floods my whole suit with warm water. It's like working in a Jacuzzi.
Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This only made things worse. Within a few seconds my butt started to burn.
I pulled the hose out from my back, but the damage was done.
In agony I realized what had happened.
The hot water machine had sucked up a jellyfish and pumped it into my suit. Now, since I don't have any hair on my back, the jellyfish couldn't stick to it However, the crack of my butt was not as fortunate.
When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt.
I informed the dive supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator. His instructions were unclear due to the fact that he, along with five other divers, were all laughing hysterically.
Needless to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make three agonizing in-water decompression stops totaling thirty-five minutes before I could reach the surface to begin my chamber dry decompression. When I arrived at the surface, I was wearing nothing but my brass helmet.
As I climbed out of the water, the medic, with tears of laughter running down his face, handed me a tube of cream and told me to rub it on my butt as soon as I got in the chamber.

The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't poop for two days because my butt was swollen shut.
So, next time you're having a bad day at work, think about how much worse it would be if you had a jellyfish shoved up your butt.
Now repeat to yourself, 'I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.'
Whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day?
May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day.

well, i have a doctor's apt tomorrow and i called and cxled it. i decided that i am done with everything that i have been doing to keep my hair. i am not taking injections anymore, or using foams, or creams on my scalp. i am losing more hair and it comes and goes. it seems that i am losing and growing hair and that it has nothing to do with the treatments. plus i am gaining weight from all of the steriods and that doens't help my state of mind at all either. i stopped the zoloft as well. i… Continue

well i have been wishing that my hair loss would not be the only thing that i thought about and my wish came true and now i wish the only thing i had to worry about in my life is not having hair(seems stupid that i was so worried in the 1st place). i married rusty when i got pregnant with my son russell i was very young and after he was born 6 mo later i got pregnant with my daughter jordan. i divorced their dad when she was only 2 mo old. then i re-married a year later to a man named david.… Continue

tattoo help!

Posted on October 8, 2008 at 11:32am 9 Comments

well, i am a tattoo person as you can see from my pics and i would like to get a new tatt to mark this period in my life. if it was breast cancer i would have a really cool pink ribbon drawn and that would be that tatt, but is there anything like that for alopecia? is there any kind of symbol? if not, any ideas would be great.

doctor's visit

well i went to see the doc this morning and i got more of the injections. i have some spots that are not even attempting to put out hair and then some other spots that are growing like crazy. i have to say that i am extremely emotional today and i have started losing hair in a very private spot. that has plunged me into an extreme crazy frezy. it makes me think that this is not going to get better even though the doc says that she is very optimistic about complete regrowth. i snapped at a lady… Continue
