THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY DISCUSSION GOING ON! WHERE IS EVERYONE WITH ALOPECIA? I AM A WOMAN OF 60 WITH LICHEN PLANOPILARIS WHICH RESULTS IN PERMANENT HAIRLOSS. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE WITH THE SAME OR SIMILAR THAT I CAN SHARE EXPERIENCES WITH? MY CONDITION SEEMS TO BE TOTALLY NOT UNDERSTOOD BY DOCTORS. EVEN THE DERMATOLOGISTS HAVE NO ANSWERS.
Very sad that there is no discussion going on here as I was very excited to see this in the recent TRENDCO newsletter. There seems to me to be very little if no support for people with alopecia. I lost all my hair at 33 and have been living with it ever since. The service I have received at TRENDCO has been fabulous - it's so important to feel comfortable and not be bullied into something you don't like. That was my experience at other places - the wigs had aged me by about 20 yeasr! Most days I cope with the hair loss (head and body hair) but the lack of eyebrows and eye lashes still gets me down. I have had a bad experience followed by a good experience with semi-permanent make up and I spend a small fortune at Boots on eyelashes. Anyone else got anything to share?
Thank you ladies for getting the discussions started! It is great to hear about your experiences. We are spreading the word for TAG and are getting lots of views but no one seems to be sharing! If you have a support circle of friends, please spread the word about TAG! We need more support for people with alopecia!
