I don't let myself check my head too often these days--have found it's mentally healthier if I just don't focus too much attention on it. But after a few months of feeling like I was "in remission," I figured it was worth a look (and really, I was hoping to check in here today and say I was still doing well, since I know not too many folks come back to these boards with good news). Sadly, I have another nickel-sized spot on the back of my head. I count my blessings still that my spots have never grown very large (the biggest, original one was about three inches long) and that they are still underneath the top layer of hair and very easily concealed. But as usual, the panic sets in that it's "just the beginning" so for me, I've chosen to respond medically to make me feel like I'm being proactive about it. I'll be making an appointment with my derm to get injections in the new spot and have started applying the topical steroid that I still have on hand from my last treatment. I'm a little disappointed in my reaction to this, immediately getting scared and angry, when I thought I had tackled the emotional side of this a few months ago. I thought I had gotten to the point of reacting to the situation I'm in without freaking out about potential doomsday scenarios in which I'm dealt something much worse than what's actually happening to me (which, admittedly, is a very minor bout of Alopecia Areata). But there I go, crying and panicking again. So I still have some personal growth to work on! I'll continue to keep you posted as I go.
