I discovered my Alopecia Areata after coming back from a 2 week holiday in the Dominican Republic. I had a small bald spot just above my left ear. At its' worst, so far, I had several small and medium size spots all over my head. No one would ever be able to tell, because I keep my hair long enough to hide them. It's been almost 3 years now and at the moment it seems to have slowed down. I don't think I will ever feel 100% confident it won't start up again.
Hello and welcome, Stacey!
I know how hard and frustrating alopecia can be; I have had it for about 30 years. After I became the spokesperson for the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, a lot of women were needing my help and support, so I wrote a book called, "If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" You can find out more on my page -- and it's available on this site under "Bookshelf." Let me know if there's anything else I can do!
