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

This month is going by so quickly.  I hope all of you have been wearing blue for Alopecia Areata Awareness.  Please send me your pics to bsbu@tstanciel.com.  I love the ones I have received so far!

Be Strong, Be You, WEAR BLUE!

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!

Isolation, The Beginning of Darkness

1. Please keep me in your prayers.  If there was never a struggle to get through these trials and tribulations, I would never had made the progress to be where I am today.  Baby steps.  This is the beginning of tremendous, soulful healing.

2. Below is at least one way to contact those whose businesses supported me during my photoshoot:

Note from the Author

It is important for me to inform you, as a reader, much of what I will discuss will be eye-opening and in some cases, jaw dropping and revealing.  Information will be discussed in a tasteful manner.  In instances where my stories could be hurtful to others (Which I shouldn’t really care, but my heart says to), I will protect the innocent by changing the names when needed.  Again, this is my life, my story, from my perspective.  -Tanisha C.
