“Hey everybody so if you didn’t know, this month (September) was Alopecia Awareness Month. Seeing as it’s the last day of the month, I thought I’d come out and tell you all a little something about myself. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata when I was 8 1/2 years old. I slowly lost my hair over a couple of months and finally lost it all when I was 10. I’ve been ashamed and embarrassed of my condition and am terrified for posting this. But you know, why live in hiding?”
