This is to whoever out there is going through the same thing. It has been very difficult! Crying, depression, unsolved answers as to why, frustration, and everyting from trying anything and everyting to make it better. The first thing I noticed in this post from the original writer is about the tingling and feeling of tiny creatures crawling EVERYWHERE on your scalp. Almost unbearable to where you want to rip your scalp apart. Noone can get this unless youve experienced it. It's Unbearable!!! Ive used creams, Shampoos, anything from cocnut oil, tea tree oil, to frankinsense, and anything that was topical from my dermatologist... even had blood work done. Nothing seemed to work. And most frustrating, my blood work came back normal and the doctors couldnt find anything wrong. So today I had a prednisone shot, and Im on prednisone pills, including Xanax for the anxiety I am going through. And YES...stress is a huge culprit of Alopecia. Tomorrow I visit the dermatologist to have a skin bioposy. Im trying everything!!! I do not want to end up bald. And I want to end this horrible unknown thing that is going on. I also have to comment again on the original person that wrote this post...I completely GET IT!. I am a very confident woman. I am very social and outgoing. Ever since this has happened, that has all dissapeared. And...In the end, I may have to shave my head and sport a new nose ring, on top of super cute scarfs and bandanas to make myself feel better. But, Im ready to take this on if be. And as far as friends...anyone who is going through this, surround yourself with true friends who don't give a #$@Q#% and love you no matter what!!! Keep telling yourself you are beautiful and keep the faith!!!! Life could be so much worse. Like losing family members and close friends. Stay healthy and I hope this helps.
