My son has Alopecia Universalis. He has just graduated high school and is looking for his first job. His hair started falling out when he was about 7. He has never worn a wig and only wore a cap for maybe a year or so. After that, he has just gone bald everywhere he goes. He seems to be proud ofvwho he is and has lots of friends. He is very outgoing and funny and everybody loves him.
He is, however, having a hard time finding a job. He is starting to think that maybe it is due to the fact that the baldness makes him look so different. I am wondering if the prospective employers think he might be sick. Have any of you had similar experiences? Any suggestions? I was thinking that maybe he should tell them right out that he is not sick and explain the condition. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
