Hello world! I'm 24 and italian. Sorry if my english is bad....
I started losing hair 3 years ago. Before then, I had waist-long, thick, brown, beautiful hair. I study middle eastern dance, so having long, sensual hair has always been important to me. Now I'm treating my andro-genic alopecia with minoxidil, my hair loss has slowed down even if I have some spots and I can't keep it as long as before. My mum is almost bald, my father as well (but it has never been a problem for him!), so I am not expecting miracles from this therapy. Psychologically, the beginning was devastating... I felt like I was losing the most beautiful thing I had, as well as my youth. Every day I was crying because I wanted my hair back. Now I feel like I'm grown a little older. I know there is no possible going back. Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I think my hair is still beautiful, I am still beautiful. I learned to live with this issue, yet I haven't accepted it. I want to keep them long as long as I can, then I'll shave them.
Yet...Hey, hair is not the only thing I'm concerned about! I'm a student in Medicine, I love dancing and reading!
I'd like to meet other young people like me.

sono di Firenze!!! Sono appena tornata da una assemblea di un'associazione che si occupa di alopecia areata. Il sito è www.sosalopeciaareata.org Faccio parte anche di un gruppo di auto aiuto e molte di queste persone erano presenti e ci siamo divertiti proprio un sacco! Il gruppo si chiama "volpine" (perchè la volpe perde il pelo come noi :-) tu di dove sei?
