Writing/ typing about my alopecia isn't really my thing. I just happened to find this site, and I thought I would share my story.
This is my second time with alopecia universalis. I had it when I was two years old. My hair came back when I was four years old. And when I turned thriteen, my hair fell off again. I became bald within months. I decided to wear a wig, and it has been working pretty well. My peers at school...they're really nosy.
They noticed my hair did not look the same. They started to question me. After a few months, the rumors about my having cancer and insults about my eyebrows calmed down. No one seemed to care about my appearance anymore.
But nowadays, it has been getting harder to hide my wig. I am becoming more active in certain school programs. And people become more suspicious everyday. There are times when I just want to tell the whole world that I have alopecia universalis, but I am still too embarassed.
On the bright side, my eyelashes have grown back. There is a lot of little tiny baby hair on my head. I know and hope that by my senior year of high school, I will have a full head of hair.
Still fighting and hoping...
