Been dealing with it since Age 7! Been through a lot of bullying, struggle and pain since then. It is a physical issue but has a very large mental impact and mental toll on you.

This is the first place i have come across where there is a community for Alopecia. Mostly people don’t even know what it is. I can totally relate with you on this. I got my first patch when I was 5 years old. It grew after that and now I am completely bald. It does has a mental toll on you but you need to realise that it’s just hair, an extra accessory and now you can style it better. I embrace it by thinking that i can use different wigs now and look the way i want to, every single time! stay strong xx

My sister has alopecia. She has been through a lot in her life. I wish you all the strength in the world xx

You can’t control it. It is super hard evidently. But alternatives are wearing wigs or even a weave. Your body is exactly how it is supposed to be. You are valid with or without alopecia

Hey, I have seen a friend go through it. People can be mean sometimes. Especially when they don’t know what the person is going through. I’d say, don’t let it get to you.

From the person who wrote this post - The worst part is that nobody talks about it. As you said, Simran, that you’ve seen a friend go through it? But that’s hardly the case. The person next to me might have this but I wouldn’t know about it. There isn’t enough awareness about alopecia.

Thank you so much Jarul and Simran and the anonymous people for the love and support!❤️

You’re absolutely right. Awareness about the issue is the best way to make people understand it’s seriousness. People like you and I will make all the difference we can❤️ Much love.

Hope you are doing good now.
