Patient with patches of Alopecia Areata
My world fell apart 18 months ago when I discovered my hair was thinning and I had 2 bald patches (Alopecia Areata), that sound dramatic but for a 78 year old lady who’s been lucky not to have had any serious illness and never use hair dye, it had.
I just couldn’t believe it, it was hard to come to terms with, I became depressed, I didn’t want to see anyone, I felt embarrassed even to tell my family and friends as they had always complemented me on what a lovely head of hair I had always had.
Then one day things just got too much, everyday trying to disguise the patches which was becoming harder and harder, with more and more hair falling out I was at the end of my tether, so I told my family, and together we found Shuna Hammocks at Sussex Trichology online, I made an appointment in April.
I was so nervous, but the moment Shuna greeted me with a big smile, I knew I was in the right place, we chatted, and Shuna was able to put my mind at rest about what was happening to me, explaining my condition and what she could do for me, in such a way that make me feel my world would get back together again.
I am so pleased to say it is with the 2 bald patches are gone, I am well on the way to getting the thickness back Shuna said she could achieve, I can’t thank Shuna at Sussex Trichology enough for what she has done, I feel so much more happier, my confidence is coming back I am a new woman thanks to Shuna.
