I hope this image communicates the feelings and emotions of those who, like me, have this condition. It is as if your head is advertising that your immune system isn’t behaving itself, it is emotionally draining, utterly confusing and when it first happens, scary. It is completely unpredictable, just a few small patches of your hair can fall out and then return in a few months or years. But for some, it gets steadily worse and eventually all head and body hair is lost. For information and support please visit Alopecia UK.
