Sooooo, someone I know joined match.com so I decided to do the same. She paid the fees and all but I decided to just see what it was all about. She met someone right away but from what I saw thete was no one worthy of a fukl subscription. Today, I get an e-mail that someone sent me a wink.II open the e-mail amd there is my ex. I screamed! This isn’t an ex I would date ever again! He is the ex you see and ask yourself “WHY?”
This confirms my feeling before, online dating is a joke.
I need to start looking for another dermatologist.
This guy is a freaking joke.
He doesnt even look for spots….he doesnt care….he acts like I am interrupting his morning. If I wasnt coming to him for something so sensitive to me personally I probably would have yelled and gone off but instead I just cried……and cried……as I helf these white clothes up to my head as my scalp bled from these shots he gave me. He had no mercy and laughed at me for telling him I have a fear of needles….this is not the place for me….or anyone else dealing with delicate situations.
Going to get shots from the dermatologist for my alopecia.
I am terrified!
I do not want it to hurt.
I still have to go to work.

THE BALD GIRL
ALOPECIA AWARENESS SEPTEMBER
I am not sure how many are like me and was completely unaware that September is Alopecia awareness AND our ribbon is a navy blue ribbon.
With that being said I also make and sell jewelry on etsy (and other places but etsy will be the face of the following statements). I am so moved by the people I see on tumblr, instagram, facebook, etc that are making the best of their Alopecia. I want to give back! The entire month of September you will be able to find BLUE jewelry, BLUE stickers, BLUE t-shirts, etc that I am going to sell. All custom and all purchases will support NAAF (National Alopecia Areata Foundation).
How does that sound?
I hope you will be able to support!
Stay Strong & Redefine what society calls beauty!
With Love & No Hair
THE BALD GIRL
I fully comprehend that matchmakers have been around for many of moons and even date back to Biblical times. I applaud those who’ve had success with the business. However, I am not one that needs assistance. I am not sure if it is the pity of me being plus sized, bald, or being 23 & single that caused my co-worker to want to set me up. Whatever it may be I do not need assistance as previously stated. In fact until recently, I needed assistance juggling dates. The only reason that is no longer a problem is because I awoke from an epiphanous dream that I have more to focus on than cute boys. (And, oh, were my gents handsome!) The only thing I need assistance with is moving out of Ohio and making my bank account grow!
Have you ever balled up a piece of paper? Then, with regret of the action you begin to straighten the paper out? You lay it flat and rub your palm across it, you may even rub it on edges of items in hopes of straightening out the wrinkles. Just like this paper you have been damaged by life experiences. You may regret the past actions but scars will form on you, no matter how much straightening of your path you do those scars will remain. Everyday you may see your scars, you may feel the effects but the truth is…you’re still beautiful to me.
DON’T GIVE UP.
This web series gives me life.
Plain and simple.
I do not identify as any title.
I am a creation of love that gives love back.
I respect all and I enjoy learning the many sides of life in each individual’s eyes.
The Bald Story
I am a recently diagnosed alopecia patient. It started when I was in wal-mart grocery shopping with my mother. She mentioned she saw a bald spot in my afro. I didn’t think anything of it because it isn’t rare for me to style my natural hair in a way that makes me look bald in a spot because I didn’t twist of untwist correctly. I didn’t think of it again until I went for a haircut and my beautician took off an inch of hair and then began to question a bald spot that was not there when I got my hair cut the last time. She gave me a hand mirror and showed me the spot… I felt my heart sink. I began googling, bootleg doctoring research, vitamin treatments studying, I was trying to diagnose myself. When I read the symptoms of alopecia I knew in my spirit that I had it. I have an aunt who has it and it is known to be hereditary. The day I got that haircut my mindset was not in a good place. I felt vulnerable and ugly. I began putting make up on the bald spot to try to blend it In with my hair. I felt like a slave to my scalp which was ridiculous. I was wearing scarves and hats everyday. I an a woman with free spirit and I refused to be a slave to my scalp. With a little liquid courage I shaved my head which made me feel free again.
As of now my hair is growing back from the cut and some hair from the alopecia location has started growing back too. However, another spot has started to develop which takes a toll on me mentally.
During all of this I also had to to through a cancer scare. The cancer scare has given me humility in a way that I never thought. It has showed me that things can be worse, so what’s a few bald spots. Alopecia is not fatal. I proudly wear my bald spots with my head held high.
