Hey guys. I haven't posted here in a while. You may remember me complaining of a receding hairline at the young age of 20. However, it turns out I'm actually suffering from alopecia areata, which affected my hairline (and really everywhere on my head). At the moment the hair in that area is growing back.

My armpits have been affected, and I'm pretty sure my arms and legs. Definitely facial hair.

Anyway, I'm posting about this here because alopecia areata can occur a lot in people with psychiatric illnesses (and presumably a genetic predisposition towards autoimmune disorders). Does anyone here have it?

Luckily for me, I have the kind called areata incognita so I don't have any large obvious patches like in classic areata.
