    Hi ladies....

    As I do most mornings, I made a cup of tea, and logged on to read whats up with everyone, and I suddenly thought, I want to say hello to all of you, and to thank you all for the input and suport you have given me, and to say how thankful I am that I "found" this site, and to wish you all well on this difficult journey we are forced to take...I am trying to add a photo , as i so enjoy seeing the faces of the ladies who have put their pictures on here.

    Best wishes....................Scraggy

    Karin, you are beautiful!!! You definitely must pick a new username. Scraggy just won't do now that we have seen how gorgeous you are. :)

    Thank you so much for sharing your picture with us. It's always wonderful to be able to put a face to a name.

    Have a fantastic day!!!

    Hugs, Joann

    Karin- that is a great picture! I would not guess you have hair issues. And there is a guy with his arm around you! You look gorgeous and happy. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you ladies for the compliments...does wonders for the old self confidence , which since the hairloss seems to be on the floor somewhere (smile)...gone dam well missing...hehe.

    Joanne, i actually love the name Scraggy...i should become a real Scraggy...she was such an amazing dog, i worked with animal anti cruelty in South Africa, and at one point had 5 dogs and 10 cats, all rescues except one...and Scraggy was by far the doggie who had such a great personality...everyone loved her and wanted her..

    Deede..the man sitting next to me is just an old friend...no romantic attachment...(smile)

    hi scraggy...you are such a lovely and kind person...i saw your pic and thought, 'what a beautiful lady!' and then remembered you too have concerns about hair...but honestly i doubt anyone ever looks at your hair or thinks twice about it. i know, easy for someone else to say. but i'm definitely going to eat berries and salmon till they're coming out of my ears : ). i have a reunion coming up and wish i could saunter in feeling great about being the ONLY single person i know there, but instead i'm going to fret over the overhead lighting. anyway, thanks for the postings. and the woman with the fab tattoos (sp?)...love it! gorgeous! i noticed a young bald lady jogging through the city the other day...the first thing you noticed was her perfect facial bone structure. anyway, happy day all.

    Hi Stella...

    thanks for your kind words...welcome to the berry and salmon club YUK..(smile) but hey you loose weight, and you know Stella, when i was "younger" i never thought much about my shoulders, and smooth neck and all those things, and they are really sexy you know, truly we all loose sight of the rest of our bodies, and when u get to my age you loose the whole dam body, it falls to your knees..hehe..sooo truly i am looking at all the good things we woman have, and with a bit of weight loss, and a bit of excersise..ARGGGG we can improve other parts...and take all the focus away from our hair, so thats what you have to do..get some toppik, or whatever you can find to make that path look better, and shove a dam piece into your hair, and jusr do as i am, saying hey i have other things i am going to try and improve...soooo dont think about the light at the do...wear something sexy, show some clevage, wear a stunning piece of jewellery...oh we as woman can do so much more than men...soooo i bet you will be looking great whe u go to the function...u will if u stay on this unintersting way of eating (smile) and hey u get less wrinkles...whats not to like...hehe...also the sexiest thing you can have "is confidence"..and an open big smile...my daughter has soo much of that, and she is never short of men asking her out or whatever...(and she is just a lovely youny woman..many woman are way prettier, she says so, but she does the above) Soo think u are great, and it will eventually come through the way you walk and act...truly..i mean it.

    Love..Scraggy

    Ruthie- it is good to hear from you. I was getting worried because it had been so long. I am glad you are enjoying your grand daughter. I have MVP and PVC's too, but going off caffeine made a big difference. It is scary when all of a sudden you think you are going to pass out or your heart speeds up to about 200 a minute. But so far I am still here to talk about it. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather- at least I hope it will cool off here so I can go out and walk my dog in the afternoons after work.

    Ruthie...

    Its soo good to hear back from you..you know its very hard for me to get into this laptop...and then to negotiate the "boards" aaaand then, find my way to where you are..hehe... I have been worried about what you are doing, now i am going to put locks on the cupboards so you cant eat the chocolates....ooonly kidding, you have to have something to calm you down when you get these attacks. I have no idea how they feel, but i can tell you, that since i came to the USA, i really get scared of things , that did not bother me at home, and at times those things WITH the hairloss, well i feel i cant breath, its lousy... I am trying Ruthie to pull my mind straight...its a constant effort, (sigh) sooo dont think i am "all better" nop, i wont be all better with this little amount of hair, BUT i decided, i can let this DAM HAIR thing consume my life...ok..so then what, i have ruined my day, had noooo happiness, and i STILL have the problem....soo i just decided i HAVE to concentrate on the fact i "have hair" hey its not great, but its there...sooo i am just shifting my thinking, i am FORCING my brain to think of other things...you know the way you dont think about ur hair when u are having a panic attack...well same sort of thing....! just move your braiin elsewhere... I am thirilled you are enjoying your grandaughter....i envy you....sooo please chin up Ruthie....and dont go under that bed again...caus i will come look for you ..hehe

    Much love...Karin

    Love...Scraggy
