Alopecia Areata

I think sometimes that sharing can make a situation become more real so...I'm going to share my latest experience in hope of finding some inner peace.
About a month ago I began loosing my hair in round patches. At first sight this was very traumatic. The doctor thought I had someting called Tinea Capita ,(fungal scalp infection)
contagious and very scary. So I am taking oral anifungal which is not working . Another doctor told me I had Alopecia Areta (correct diagnosis) since it can be caused by Pernicious Anemia which I recently have had diagnosed.
Alopecia is the body's immune systeme attacking the hair follicles .This medical condition is not curable and not dangerous. It is only harmfull to one's ego. :)
My mother always said what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I think she's right.....
Although I feel a bit scared and vulnerable right now , I'm sure this will be a life changing experience for me...
