So I’m a normal 17 year old girl from the Isle of Skye, an island in the north-west of Scotland, In my last year of school, obsessed with the way I look and am always trying to improve my image, but there is something different, I have alopecia. Alopecia is a illness where the immune system accidently attacks the hair follicles thinking they’ll harm you. There are 3 types of Alopecia for women, they are, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Universalis and Alopecia Totalis. My hair started falling out in May this year, only in small amounts, but more than normal I thought, maybe just stress? Then it kept falling out..
