I'm a new member, so I figured I'd do the polite thing and introduce myself.

So, yeah, I'm someone with AA Totalis, which is working its way down from the head (the Sunscreen song should have had the line "Be kind to your eyelashes, you'll sure miss them when they're gone"). I've had it for a while, but like a lot of others, occasionally need a place to vent, look for (maybe even share) advice, or hell, even to share a funny story with some folks who might appreciate it. :)

The funny thing is, being a transwoman I might have a few more mixed feelings than some others; while watching my scalp go totally bare wasn't the most pleasant experience, losing facial hair definitely didn't suck (saves thousands on hair removal). :)

On a more normalised note, I'm a total geek, living in Ireland and into things like juggling, computers (which earns me a living), collecting random information, public speaking, homebrewing and a whole load of other things I can barely think of. I'm also thinking of getting a tattoo fairly soon to mark the fact that I've had alopecia (regardless of whether my hair grows back or not), just as my little battle scar. You know, just to remind myself, "I once thought this was the worst thing that could happen, but I've faced this an lived". Once I actually get it, I'll probably post on pictures and the like.

Anywho, just thought I'd wave and say "Hey".
