I’m Alive.. I’m Alive :)

by admin on January 15, 2013

I just posted this message to the WHLP Facebook page and thought it would be good to post it here as well.

Hello Hello! I’ve gotten several emails and messages from super sweet gals wanting to make sure I was okay since I haven’t posted in awhile, and I just want to say, I’m alive and totally fine, just dealing with a crazy life situation right now that TOTALLY caught me off guard, it’s non hair related… obviously, or else I’d be posting up a storm. My life stressor occupying my time will be doing so for another month and half, I’m hoping to be able to get more zen with everything and be able to post AND deal with my stuff, but who knows.

Aside from my bumpy start to 2013 I really do feel this is going to be an awesome year, and I want to do more and share more with all of you. Rest assured all my “girls” are doing well and getting equal wear time.. sorta.

Oh and update on my hair, as in my bio hair. So weird.. but it’s doing rather good I think, not good like in, wear it out without a wig good, but still, certainly looking better for wear around the house… good. I’m surprised because I did get off the Aldactone and have been waiting for that other shoe to drop, but nope, knock on wood. It’s good, and it’s growing, finally. Almost a decent front ear-to-ear length to integrate with my wigs properly. I’ll be keeping the front long and back supa short for ultimate wig wearing :)

Thank you guys so much for your emails, it’s so appreciated, and I do apologize for not having been more active posting. But I will.. soon, with more videos and blogs I hope it will be a strong year of change and hope for many women out there.

Love to all!

Dear Y,
Sooo glad to hear. Was going to send you a note today, and here you are:).
Have had a bumpy end of 2012 and start to 2013, myself. Haven’t been online, dealing with stressors and crap myself.
Your post was a great reminder that we are not in this alone, hair and “other” stuff – wise.
You’ll be in my thoughts, prayers and heart. It was YOU, after all, who threw me the life preserver this past summer when I was drowning in hair -loss aloneness. Love you. J

P.S. happy, happy, happy about your bio hair :) God does often open a window somewhere when doors seem to be closing all around us.
Sometimes I feel like I have to look hard, but I’ll usually find one, even if it’s only open a small crack. xoxoxo

Hey Y, so glad to hear from you, have been worried! Sending you love and (((hugs)))) for whatever crap you’re going through!

You know what’s weird…I stopped taking Aldactone last summer when I got put on a beta blocker as part of my anxiety treatment. It’s like my hair hasn’t even noticed. The shedding hasn’t been bad at all. (Of course I say that as I’m headed to the shower, hopefully I don’t jinx myself!!)

Anyhow, hope you’re up to posting more soon, as you know us faithful followers hang on your every word! (Not saying that sarcastically, either, it’s totally true! Right, girls?)

Same here! I was going to message you to see if you were okay! Thanks for the post!! Strange about the hair – me too! Seems like my hair is doing “okay” – it’s still thinning some, but kind of growing in sections, too. I’m wondering if the “stress effect” has something to do with it! I am less stressed about the hair and I know you are too… Who knows – it may be growing because we aren’t “as” stressed out about it? Anyway, glad to hear from you!!! :)

My bio hair is growing now also…is there something in the water?? Hope whatever is keeping you busy has a positive outcome. I think it could be with wearing wigs you don’t wash, curl, and comb so much so maybe it gives it a bit of a boost. I know my bio hair has certainly thickened up a bit since summertime. Hugs to you, all the best and we’ll be here when you’re back!!

Nice to hear from you. Glad to hear you are doing well especailly with stopping the aldactone. Did you also take Synthroid? are you still on that? I keep thinking that my problem has to do with Levoxyl. Thanks for the update.

I think you had gal’s all around the world a bit worried! Glad you are doing well and that we still have our Super Roll Model!!

Hi Y,
I am one of those girls that tracked you down – please don’t EVER leave me :-)
I do hope things are as ok as possible and that you do have a super year like you believe and deserve. Actually to all my sisters here!
Awesome news to you and all the other girls on here who seem to be having some good news on your bio hair – yipee for you and poopoo for me as I am not in that group – at least I have my trusted bffs hanging on their styrofoam heads just waiting for morning to come!
2013 has started bumpy for me too but this year I am more able to cope and be more calm – that’s huge progress for me and I attribute it to me finally trying to take control of all the things that were controlling and consuming me (insert hair crap as one big one of those things!).

Well, to you all have a super day. See you back here Y – actually I am looking forward to it.

Peace and love to you all and yes, Happy New Year,
