Still Spinning, and What’s alopecia then?

When I returned yesterday to my bog, I wondered about the title. I’ve been “still spinning” since 2003, but to be honest, I haven’t had a major recurrence of vertigo, so maybe its time for a name change? No – traelling as a passenger up the spiral entrance to our local multistorey carpark reminded me how sensitive I am to spinning. I felt sick and disorientated in just a few minutes!! Maybe I’m just coping better than I used to, which is why I don’t notice it so much. Perhaps the title stays!

But I have a new subject to occupy my time. Alopecia. See here.

My hair has always been thin, but now I’m losing it in quite a big way. Its quite awful when you’re a girl! I’m now considering whether to go for a wig or hairpiece of some kind. Not an easy decision.

Hello, Old Friend

Its been a while since I’ve been here! So much has happened.  Not sure what to tell you really, there’s been a lot of work stuff and a lot of weekend stuff.

Personal, though – that’s the kind of thing I used to write about here.

So, there are two personal things to tell you.

1) I have been diagnosed with alopecia areata.

2) We’re trying for a baby.
