This is a self-portrait of me. I have alopecia...

Something I hate about myself is my hair!!!!!!!!! The lack of it that is. I suffer from a condition called alopecia. It is hereditary and my grandmother had it. I did not find out until I was grown that she had lost her hair at any early age. My hair began to thin out in my late thirties. I really hate the fact that I have this condition. My insurance will only pay for a wig!!!!! I hate wigs. So I wear a hair prosthetics a fancy weave. The good news is that I don’t have to take it off and it allows me more freedom. The bad news it is expensive. So there, the cat is out of the bag. So maybe people will stop asking me “is that your real hair”. dammit it is as real as it gets!!!!!
