Elaine's link with alopecia: Elaine has had alopecia for over thirty years and currently has alopecia universalis. From Elaine: "I was first diagnosed with alopecia aged 19 and have had hair loss patches of varying sizes over the 30 years until 2015 when it suddenly progressed to Alopecia Universalis. I understand the fear and worry that dramatic changes to your appearance can have on your emotional wellbeing. Coming to Alopecia UK and meeting people with the same condition and hearing their experiences, suggestions and positivity gave me courage to accept myself with or without hair and face the world without fear. Helping and supporting others on the same journey is my way of saying thank you for the help I have received. The meeting is a safe place to share our stories, learn more about alopecia in it's various forms, gain understanding about the different ways we are affected by our hair loss and the practical means by which we can help ourselves feel more confident in the way we look, act and feel."
