Hello,i suffer from alopecia,which got a lot worse following the birth of my son.Not only did i have the usual hair loss but big bald patches aswell.It does eventually grow back but because i'm a huge stresser it isnt long until i get knew patches.I always keep my hair tied back so the patches dont show,well that much!It makes me feel that im not feminine and on bad days like a real FREAK!It would be lovely to hear from anyone else who suffers from this or from anyone with a miracle cure.
Lucymoo, I'm sorry you are suffering this condition. My DH had this a few years back. He had an bad accident which involved a lot of stress as well as the injury he suffered. About a year after the accident, a small coin size patch of hair fell out then it just got bigger until it was about 8cms in diameter on one side of his head. Of course, as a man can, he shaved his head which he hated and always wore a cap. After about two years it started growing back but the hair was darker. All is well now, back to normal. They say holding an ice pack on the patches can help. I don't have a miracle cure but I thought it might help to know someone understands.
Hi, I have Trichotilomania (hair pulling) and I had a large patch on the crown of my head, I had a hair system done at Mark Glenn in London, it does cost a large amount of money, but I know they can do it for Alopecia too.....
I am waiting for the police to phone me back, and then i can go to the council. There is a thread in the Feeling depressed section. (can't take much more) but I can't see the council doing much tbh so i will have to go down the eviction route.
u would have thought so, wouldn't you? Not sure if he is actually still living there, haven't seen his car at night, doesn't seem to be hanging about as much, so I think his parents must have heard about what happened and said something.
oh they are!! such sweeties, shame they have raised such arseholes...... If it wasn't for their sons, I would stay here forever..... when we first moved here, the 2 older sons were in prison, and they had a party for the dad's 50th, they came round and told us they were having a party and invited us (we didn't go) the next day we got up and found that someone had puked on the car, left it, and came out later and the dad had cleaned it all off and clear all the glass bottles.
Bad luck, Lucymoo, it's horrible, isn't it? I have had a couple of attacks, but it has always grown back exactly as it was. I have tried trad. chinese medecine, which was the foullest bew i have ever drunk, and v expensive, and made no difference, and steroid cream which doid stop the patches getting any bigger, and made it grow back sooner, I think.
Alopeacia is an auto-immune condition, where your immune system takes against the pigment in your hair. Do other members of your family suffer any auto-immune conditions - vitiligo, arthritis, and, what's that skin condition that Dennis Potter suffered from?
