My Life With Alopecia
When I first found out
When I first found out that I had alopecia, I was a bit upset when my mum told me what it meant. Because when you hear that your hair is falling out you think you’re going to be bald straight away.
I went to the doctors and I didn’t understand what they said but my mum told me what it meant. When I heard the word blood test I was a bit frightened because I have never had one before and it sounded like it was a lot of blood and that it was going to hurt. My brother had 2 because he got a fat neck and he told me that it didn’t hurt, so I felt a bit better. It didn’t feel that bad it was just a little pinch, it did make me squeeze when the needle went in.

School with alopecia
When I went to school with alopecia I was a bit scared because I thought people were going to bully me. But it didn’t happen.
In lessons I cried a bit because I feel like it was all going to fall out straight away. Then I told Freya my best friend she kept on saying alopecia but she didn’t know what it meant, so I told her what it meant. Then we agreed that she wouldn’t tell anyone else. Now I feel better about my alopecia because everyone knows and I have my blog.
