Georgia, this is a wonderful, brave video. You are so right: some of us give to kids, students, family members to make sure THEY are okay with our alopecia, but we neglect that very deep love...that special love even though there is no known cure...for ourselves. Sometimes a partner comes along who can provide that, if that partner understands and accepts baldness in females; but otherwise, we may live in an emotional void even among family members and former BFFs. My own trick as a teen was to imagine a 30-year-old me counseling the teen me, saying, "There, there, little [, tall] will all turn out okay. You WIll find love, travel, degree and job. You WILL have a wedding and family. You WILL be a confident professional." Since I had no older sister and my relatives were old-country-ish, my mental trick helped me. I am so glad you addressed your own journey so honestly. There is so much more to being pretty...or handsome...than the outer package. We are given the outer by The Force, accident of nature or chemical/surgical tricks of humans, with no force or grace of our own choice. Even make-up brushes were invented by others. We do, however, have a choice about who we are others and ourselves. That is where true beauty or ugliness lies. And you, my dear, are beautiful.

Hi, thanks for your video, Life is a rollercouster, it goes up and it goes down, I believe that each and everyone of us are our own directors in our lifes, not that we always can decide what is going to happen to us but how we react to these things is our choice. You are very brave and very beautiful and wise. So thank you again.

You are so brave to speak so candidly about your personal journey. You must embrace the emotion... I believe it is the force that guides you to keep on going no matter what. You are beautiful and you have a whole life ahead of you. You must live it to the fullest, don't let ANYTHING get in your way! Growing up with Alopecia in my generation was so much more difficult than I see it is today. I had no where to go. Embrace that...the world is beginning to reach out and your life is waiting for you. Although we don't know eachother, I am proud of you, keep speaking out... you are a true inspiration to this cause.

Thank you for being you. I watched your documentary just last night on amazon. I laughed, I cried & I shared. My daughter watched it with me. I feel the more I expose her to Alopecia related things it wont seem so uncommon to her. I hope she doesn't ever have to go through what I've gone through but if she does I want her to see that it will be alright & your video helps as a tool with educating her on AA. I plan on having my mother & sister over to watch as well. Thank you again, you have a fan & I plan on keeping up with your videos.
