Alopecia

alopecia

This just in, or should I say : out.  Alopecia. 

One of my biggest fears in life besides natural disaster, alligators, disease, and the Chicago public transportation is going bald. 

I learned about Alopecia the other day while watching True Life.  It is usually genetic, but who knows these days.  

Your body ATTACKS your hair follicles, causing them to fall out all over your body.  This might be good if you have hair on your butt, but besides that, theres no benefit to Alopecia.  

50% of people with Alopecia will grow their hair back within 1 year without treatment . . . But many never grow hair again.  Besides physcially, Alopecia has a huge imact on psychological issues such as insecurity, depression, stress, and social phobia.   God, sounds like most of my friends.
