    My Life With Monilethrix

    I'm a 13 year old boy and have monilethrix. My dad has it, but you can't really tell because he shaves his head. My sister has it and she wears a wig. I used to get teased a lot about it, but it's quieted down since I was younger. I still get asked about my hair frequently when I...
