    I'm not usually one to blog or join forums but i'm having a hard time dealing with my progressing alopetia areata and i've read some posts that help me know i'm not alone!
    I actually noticed the first medium patch last December. It was approximately one week after a really traumatic and horrible experience. Basically my place was broken into in the middle of the night and i was woken when the theives came into my room and robbed me at gun point. I was gratefull to just live through it but a week later my hair started to fall out. i was dealing with so much else that i first i didn't pay a lot of attention to my hair. but the area just kept getting bigger. its now higher way above my earline on both sides and right accross the back. I've had 2 sessions of the cortizone injections and i do see some regrowth in small areas which is a really great sign - but at the same time it continues to keep falling out more and more, up to this morning in the shower. I dont feel worried about it growing back but its freaking me out that 8 months later it continues to fall out. Luckily because its not dropping much from the front i can still hide it as long as i wear it out and style it every day (gone are the quick poney tails). I worry i'll have to try a wig if this keeps up and concerned it will be obvious and everyone will know. i also live in a very hot country so i'm concerned about a wig just being a big hot sweaty mess on my head!
    anyone have any ideas, comments or suggestions please let me know. especially if maybe you have a similar alpecia situation. does anyone think they know what triggered it to STOP falling out? doubt it but worth asking nonetheless!
