Dear Lacy-

You are an amazingly strong and well spoken woman.  You are NOT your hair and you ARE beautiful. Alopecia is difficult to cope with and accept at any age, but I think it must be harder for those that are younger.  Keep expressing what you feel--it is normal to feel as you feel.  But don't stop living. There is a big, wide, wonderful world out there and hair is NOT required to take part in it.  Please don't let your hair, or lack of it, define you. 

Best wishes,

Hi Lacy,  I think you are very brave to show your self  on here and tell it like it is-   I have lost all  my head  hair   it started last  august and am just starting to lose brows  and lashes too ....  I am gutted..  I am a hairdresser and have to listen on to everyone moaning about their hair all day long..... they really  don't know how lucky they are! Wearing Wigs sucks ,  drives me nuts.

Having Alopecia is so  tough, and as Cathy said (above  ) it must even tougher for someone as young as you. I think you are amazing to speak about  it so honestly , and you still look  totally gorgeous to me -  Stay strong- and don't go to the dark side too often! It's rubbish there! 

lots of love   L xx

I could not of said it better myself, you said all that I feel inside but cannot put into words, it moved me to tears.

What a beautiful person you are inside and out.

I also lost all hair body and head, eyelashes and eyebrows, it all grew back but like you fell out again after about 1 month and I am now minus all hair again for over a year and a half.

I try not to think too much or expect too much anymore but that doesnt lessen the pain. so thank you to someone else who feels as I do

much love to you and stay strong. Liz Bell

Thank you for sharing your story.  You are a brave and lovely young woman. 

I have lost all the hair on my head and body.  I have alopecia universalis and it

can be overwhelming at times. I continue to remind myself that I am so much more than my hair. Most of the time, I'm OK, but there are times ... I feel sad. We are all much, much more that our hair. Hearing from the many people on "Alopecia World"  gives me strength and reminds me that I am not alone.  Diane B

Lacy Jane...you are a wonderful person and have so much strength. I have had AU for about 5 months now...its been hard. I have cried many many tears..but decided...to accept what I cannot change.  I am hoping as time goes on it will get easier. I am wearing wigs but am looking for a cooler alternative for supper. Did you lose your eyelashes and eyebrows? I think that was the hardest for me. I send my blessings for you.
