About Me:
I first experienced AT at age 23 and, within a few years, experienced an almost total recovery. Then, a few years later, bald again only to have a regrowth shortly after. I went for decades with only minor normal hairloss. Then, with the trauma of my wife's death a few years ago, bald again! I have some regrowth but what a hairy ride this alopecia is! The doc says trauma related hairloss is normal. Anyone else ever go through this?
Are you age 18 or older?

I went to get a haircut today which is usually a depressing experience. I have a wonderful snd supportive women who cuts my hair and she always tries to do the best she can with what little I have. Well, in the process of cutting, a good-sized chunk of hair fell out. I thought my barber was going to faint! She is aware that I have problem hair but this she was just not expecting. Anyway, after her recovery, we had a long and nurturing talk. She was just so sweet. We agreed that the best thing… Continue

Not a good day...

In an attempt to personalize my page, I have been in the process of uploading some photos of my hairloss. What a depressing reality test this is! Somehow, I must be imagining myself with more hair. After my last round of AT, the regrowth looked like a rather advanced case of male pattern baldness. So okay, I have been getting away with wearing a hat to work. My new photos reveal small bald patches at the back of my head and it looks like I'm soon going to have to shave again. Oh, how I hate… Continue

Alopecia as a non priority ( to say the least!) or My last experience with a bald woman

Posted on August 21, 2008 at 9:01am 2 Comments

As I noted in my intro, I am am a widower. Four years ago, I lost the love of my life to a very rare form of leukemia. With chemo, there are varying degrees of hairloss. With the intensity of the chemo and a bone marrow transplant that was indicated for treatment of my spouse's cancer, AU is a certainty. With such a treatment regimen, hairloss may be temporary or sometimes not. A few other husbands and I formed a very casual support system. We all agreed upon one thing - nobody could care less… Continue

My first experience with alopecia or, If only....

Posted on August 20, 2008 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

When I was a freshman in high school , as most boys are, I was girl crazy. Of course, I was awkward, shy and very insecure. However, despite these liabilities, I did manage to have a few successful dates. One day, while changing classes, I noticed a girl who I had not seen before. In a teenage hormal rage, I found myself immediately drawn to her. She was awfully cute with a pretty face, slender figure, blond hair and wearing the sexiest pair of horned rimmed glasses this kid had ever seen. I… Continue

Jamie, I left you a comment after your comment about keeping my noggin warm...so be sure to read that on my blog. Thank you for sharing. But I wanted to say here to check out my bald pics on my profile. It took me 32 years to be able to make those pics public and risk others finding out for the first time and/or just letting everyone see me without my wig. Be patient, work on it if you want, be in denial if you need to for a time (I did). It's a process that comes in it's own time and way.

Jamie, I don't know if it was the biopsy, but my anxiety is in check now. I think I have finally come to the realization that I cannot control this. I have been given a clean bill of health by 4 doctors (PCP, OB, Derm and Endo). At most, I have an androgen sensitivity (where the skin overreacts to normal levels of testosterone). Chasing a possible treatment is far too exhausting. As long as I feel healthy (which I do), I cannot continue to worry about my hair.

I tried on a wig this week although I don't need one at the time. It really helped KNOWING there are natural looking options if the time comes. I have realized I have to embrace my life where it is right now.

Thank you so much for caring!!

Hi Jamie, thanks for asking. The biopsy only showed alot of hairs in the growing phase. It showed no increase in telogen hairs (active telogen effluvium) or androgenic alopecia (female pattern baldness). This is good news, but I'm still shedding an excessive amount of hair. Maybe the telogen effluvium is trying to heal?? Time will answer I guess. How are you?

You are very kind to say those lovely things! I spoke with Gail today and she is off to Africa on Monday - losing her hair has kept her busier than ever! Take care and keep in touch. Michelle x
