1. and…

10 years ago. I was 18 years old. As I was taking a shower and washed my hair, with every washing motion I pulled out more and more of my own hair until I was bald. No reason, no warning, nothing, just the pure horror of pulling out hands full of hair. The drain clogged with my hair as I silently stared in the mirror across the room at my own bald head.
It felt like i was falling apart. Mentaly and physicaly. I honestly thought I would die that day.

It was sudden auto-immune disease. Alopecia over night. It was scary as hell. The weeks after I lost all my body hair as well. My hair never returned and I am very okay with it now, but I can never ever forget that moment in the shower…

Edit: You people are the best!! Thank you so much for your kind words! The comments are getting out of hands now and I can’t reply to all of them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. If anyone is struggling with alopecia and needs someone to talk to, please, hit me up!
