Things are Not Going Well With My Alopecia Since I Started Listening to the Dermatologist, which was the last time I wrote about my hair; In fact, it seems worse than ever.

Here is my latest picture of alopecia on the left hand side of my head, which has always had the “most hair”

alopoecia120813I was using the Rogaine and I just started losing even more hair. I mean…..really? I read some cockamamie thing about you have to let the hair fall out from Rogaine and it starts to grow back.

Sorry…can’t take the chance.

I keep vacillating between not giving a crap and feeling like this is just so awful.


As much as I loved the wig my sister sent me, I just can’t get used to how hot my head is wearing it. I’ll take any tips!

Needless to say, I’m still taking hair vitamins, but quite frankly nothing is working.

I am so sick of thinking about hair and trying not to think about hair. Quite frankly, it’s exhausting.

So, today is just one of those bad days that I feel I can’t handle it and am just depressed and having a pity party for myself.

So, that’s my update and it’s not a good one.

At this point, I’m just trying to keep the little bit I have because I can wear my extensions (below) from (whom I just cannot praise enough. Great customer service and nice people all around.).








I think that if I get to the point where I can’t use extensions anymore, I’m just going to go the scarf route.

Thank you, again, to all the alopecia sufferers who have come forward to support me and buoy my spirits a little bit,
