Why are you BALD?I have Alopecia Areata. The bald spots were becoming more difficult to hide so I decided to shave it all off.
How has being BALD impacted your life?It has helped me to be bolder. I am not embarrassed, like I once was. I was inspired to write a children's book entitled "Bald is Beautiful Too" to encourage children with alopecia and to discourage bullying.
What's the worst thing that has happened or has been said to you as a BALD woman?As a young woman, in my 20's, my boss noticed my bald spots before I did, and he teased me about them.His words were something like, "Monica you are just about as bald as me." :(
What words of encouragement would you share with someone going BALD?To quote India Arie "I am not my hair I am not this skin I am not your expectations no no I am not my hair I am not this skin I am a soul that lives within" With or without hair you are beautiful. Embrace it!
