Why are you BALD? I'm bald because of literally knowing that life is precious by stop worrying about losing the once long hair that I have had, and have been loosing for approximately 20 years or more. Damage follicles, that's what the doctor told me after having a biopsy done. In other words, a form of Alopeica. It's effect is in right in the middle of my head..just like a man when beginning to loose his hair. One day, I just got tired of being sick & tired of loosing the hair and spending lots of money trying to grow hair and to have hair on my head. We experienced an earthquake in 2011 and my eyes opened realizing that I am here and my family was well. You can say that God spoke to me. It'll be alright! It's been 3 full years....It is well with my soul!
How has being BALD impacted your life?Being BALD has impacted not only my life, but those who have experience the same devastation, depression, anxiety, low self esteem and sickness. My story is not my story, it is His story..God be the glory. Iron sharpens Iron. Everything in life is for a reason and I have learned and trusted in God that I am here for a purpose and reason. Beauty is in our soul and in the heart of man and woman. You have to love who you are to even love others. Love makes a, I'll change that "a" to "the" difference.
What's the worst thing that has happened or has been said to you as a BALD woman?As a matter of right now time, today I went to get an eye exam. After having the examination, the doctor says to me.."You can go pick out new eyeglasses now, but I can wait if you like to open the door until you put back on your hat." My comment was.."Oh really, it doesn't matter, I'm good, I don't care, open the door." I guess he was feeling like he was being considerate. I have finished those pages and the many chapters of that story in my life. I hold my head up high and strut. I have received so many compliments telling me that I have the head for the style. I don't believe I've ever had a worst thing that has happened to me, instead of those saying that they wish they had the boldness and the head to do so. lol...although children look, but children will be children. Woman suppose to have hair right?...lol...I know I can truly say that I have saved lots and lots of money and time from being at the beauty shop getting my hair done....so sorry beauticians.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone going BALD?My encouragement would be for those going bald to embrace themselves. It took me years to come to realize that hair is not everything. Think about your family, think of things praiseworthy. Think and know that each day is a gift from God. Know that God makes no mistakes and that He loves you unconditionally. Trust Him. Live the life that God has given you. Love your self and continue to help others through your experience, your story, His Glory!
