I was so proud of her. Nellie has had a really tricky time. At the age of 10 she developed Alopecia Aerata it wasn't too bad and could be disguised. She also has had severe eczema since she was born - yes you can be born with eczema. Her alopecia and eczema became more and more difficult to manage from about the age of 13. When she was 15 she was diagnosed with an under active thyroid gland and now has to take tablets to control this. Phew - she has had a tough time and it has resulted in her missing lots of time off school. She has never said 'why me' - she is not perfect though and has had a tough time. At about the time she discovered her thyroid problem her hair was becoming increasingly worse and she decided that she wanted to do something about it. She now has two 'twigs' as we call them and she wore her new curly one for the prom and it looked fabulous. Nellie had a super night and was really glad that she went.
Love you Nellie xxxxx
