It started with Alopecia Aerate 10 years ago. November of 2014 my hair was falling out so fast I decided to shave. Now I have no hair over 95% of my body. There have been ups and downs. The impact at times has been overwhelming. I now have 4 wigs and many scarves and am trying like hell to be comfortable in public BALD. It's a process. Surround yourself with supportive people and you will be amazed at the reaction of others. I think people stare because they are shocked at the confidence it takes as a woman to walk proudly in her own space...for who she is.
