About Me:
I have been battling this disease for as long as I can remember. While I am not ashamed to tell anyone I learned ways to change the appearance of someone with Alopecia. I recently discovered that my child has it and through the struggles I face she is stronger and bolder then I ever was. This disease teaches you about strength to be different from others and self love and acceptance.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?

What is hair?

Posted on December 23, 2010 at 3:30pm 3 Comments

I had the most amazing morning today.. It was super windy as I got out of the car. My husband who is amazing says with a straight face. Is your hair going to come off and offers me his hat.. I thought that was hilarious because mines is bonded and nothing pulls this mess off...


It got me to thinking about the journey I have endured. 15 years ago I progressed from AT to AU and thought it was horrible as a teenager now I think it could have been worse. What is hair? It is…


Are we in Control ???

Yesterday, while rummaging through my closet looking for Winter shoes I wondered is Alopecia my burden or had I let it burden me? I thought I was lucky I learned to take this negative and turn it into a positive. While there are definately days when I would rather be quote "normal" I have done all the things that I wanted to do. I thought does everyone on this site now that this is not a reason to wallow in shame but to accept the challenge and continue to fight. I think are we not all… Continue

A small victory

I have been praying for my little girl! While I don't mind this condition, I don't want her to endure this harsh world. Children can be cruel. She was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata like 6 months ago. To think I was in total disbelief because this crazy condition has been a family trait. I am the only one to ever have AU. All that to say I cried many days for this child because I remember the hard times.

She reacted to topical treatments within a matter of months, something that… Continue

A poem for little one....

I sat at work and and realize I am having a tougher time with her AA then she is... Is it wrong to be a parent who wants their child to get better? I wrote this to my child in hopes she will one day know what I felt as she went through this ordeal.


Everyday I fight to be the person she needs me to be

When deep inside I feel like I am dying

Lost in a world between life and reality

I sit and hope she is stronger than me

This… Continue

Hi Trina, What a nice surprise to hear from you. I am glad things are going well for you. 1 already!! Where are the pics?  Are you on FB yet? Samantha is still doing well. Her hair is shoulder length now and she has partial brows, no lashes. We actually were able to put a bun in her hair for skating this weekend.  Is Niyah still doing gymnastics. Sam is still skating. Off to the cold rink...Have a wonderful Holiday season and keep in touch.

Hi Trina,
I'm new to the site and came across your profile. I know it's difficult for you to see your child deal with that but what a blessing that you can be a source of strength for her. This has been my biggest fear with my children and now i feel like there are a lot worse things that can happen and I hope I would be better equipped to help them deal with it than my parents were. Anyway.... love your pics. Your hairs looks great.
