I've just lost my hair and finding it really traumatic. It happened whilst we were on holiday in France and my GP thinks it may have been the sun triggering the lupus to flare. It came out in massive clumps and over half my head was affected. I looked very scarey and my kids were getting upset with all the hair coming out. i tried to be positive and regain control by shaving the rest of my hair off ( with the support of my family) so that i didnt have to see more clumps coming out. my husband has been wonderful ( he's also bald and tells me we're now like a matching pair!!) he also keeps reminding me that its only hair and having no hair will only affect my quality of life if I let it. The lupus could have targeted something much worse so we should be pleased its just my hair this time. Am trying so hard to keep positive but every time I walk past a window or mirror I feel panicky and sad
