My daughter Gianna has Alopecia Areata (more particularly Alopecia totalis). She's bald -- completely. She's three and just now she is beginning to become a bit self-conscious about her different appearance. It's understandable... kids are cruel, no one (young) really likes to be different. Lisa and I are exploring getting Gianna a nice wig to make her feel more like she fits. For now, I shaved my head so she's not the only one bald in the house. People have told me that they think what I did was awesome. I thank you all for your encouragement, but it is very little sacrifice. I really don't care what I look like -- I'm anything but vain when it comes to my appearance. Thank Lisa, she's the one that has to look at me all the time!
