#honestyhour I HAVE ALOPECIA (still). those of you who are newer friends/followers, you probably don't know this. those who have been around a while might not realize that this is still something i deal with because i don't talk about it like i used to. it's been just shy of 2 years since my hair grew back completely, and i got rid of my wigs. my hair has been falling out again for about a year now, maybe more, but i haven't been counting. honestly, i've been ignoring it, and not worrying about it. will it grow back? will it keep getting worse? am i gonna have to wear wigs again? is it going to be as hard on me as it was the first time or will it be easier now that i know what to expect? i pushed those thoughts aside. well, i'm doing this now because; YES it has gotten worse, YES i will probably be wearing a wig or rocking some crazy hairstyle in the near future (undercut? mohawk?🤷🏼♀️🙃), and IDK if it will be as hard on me as last time. i mean, i wore wigs for so many years that it became routine for me... but that was over two years ago, so i don't know what to expect this time around with new people in my life: new friends, new co-workers, new acquaintances, and new followers. you can see a small, bald spot in this picture, but it's much worse than this. i have basically no hair on either side of my head, luckily what's up top has been thick enough to keep it hidden. i'd be lying if i said that facing the gym, and dating (luckily i hate dating😅) like this wasn't daunting.
to my few friends who have been in the loop: thanks for being cool. y'all never pressured me to talk about it, but you also didn't act like it didn't exist. you've all handled it so well, and i'm thankful for such good friends.
to the new people and anyone who read this far: thank you for reading. i'm not super fragile, so feel free to message me or contact me if you've got questions. i'm happy to answer, especially if it in some way helps you☺️
