So I have been experiencing the world of alopecia for several years now. I was sent to a doctor for injections but this made it worse. I recently got married (in August) and was faced with the having to wear a hair piece. I was unimpressed with the hair dresser I went to as she commented at length on my patches on what was supposed to be my special day. I am sick and tired of the patches, although I can cover some of them one of them resides on the top of my head. I HATE it at this point I want to shave my head. I feel embarrassed and am sick of people staring at me on the bus. I just don't know what to do. I am not prepared to wear a wig by any stretch of the imagination, and although I realize shaving my head would make me "bald" in some respects I am wondering if it would be liberating.
