When Suicide Became An Option

First I would like to give a shout out to Ms. Harris at Paris High School, in Paris, Missouri for coming through with my feature picture that I accidentally erased from my phone.

Second, September 2016 was also Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.  Please reach out to those you love and always be kind.  People fight demons everyday.  Pray for them and if you do nothing else, at least smile.

Be Strong, Be You

The Hard Truth of Being Bald

 

Sorry so late! Thank you for everyone who supported me during Alopecia Areata Awareness Month! Of course, awareness will take place for many months to come. Again, thank you for making my first official awareness month (Without hair) one I will never forget!

Be Strong, Be You, WEAR BLUE!

“Meddling” Into My History

An Open Letter From Me, An Alopecian

In spite of the glare on the above selfie and the fact my background wasn’t “perfect”,  I actually LOVE this picture of me and feel very beautiful so here you go!  #nohairdontcare

Mustering Up the Strength to Tell My Mom

As long as I post weekly, it is progress to me. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you again to my friend, Vickie (Also in the picture), for the throwback pic! Remember to be kind, always.  You never know what someone else is going through behind their smile.

Happy Birthday Vickie and Rachelle!
