Yahoo! Lifestyle: 'Be More Chill' Star Lauren Marcus on Her Alopecia Diagnosis

The first time I noticed something was wrong was last year when I was doing a show out of town. I was getting my hair ready, and I noticed a bald spot on the left side of my head, which I’d never seen before. I could laugh now at the amount I cried over that tiny bald spot! It was really scary because I didn’t know…

Lauren opens up to Allure Magazine... read about it right here!

This is really new to me. It’s still only been two or three months that I haven’t had my hair. It happened about two days before I was opening a show, so I was in shock. As an adult, it’s scary, because the first thing that happens is you think something is wrong with you, that you’re sick. I have days when I get…

FUNERAL

Never had a ton of wealth
But I had good hair and I had my health
'Til I didn't anymore

Pieces of me in the air
Sleepless nights screaming "It's not fair"
And it shook me to my core

I'm tired of pretending what's happening isn't real
I'm angry and I'm lonely and I badly want to heal

I'm gonna have a funeral for the old me
Gonna stand in back in black and cry quietly
Gonna throw a kiss, maybe reminisce 'bout the way life used to be
Then I'll pull a white flag from my sleeve
Dry my eyes, say my goodbyes and leave

Time may come and steal a friend
And there's no good way to greet the end
Of a love that's come this far

I know the heartache won't be gone
But I also know you can't move on
If you can't quite admit just where you are

Won't say that I'm happy, won't say that it's fine
Time is still a thief, but hey
At least my grief is mine

I'm gonna have a funeral for the old me
Gonna stand in back in black and cry quietly
Gonna throw a kiss, maybe reminisce 'bout the way life used to be
Then I'll pull a white flag from my sleeve
Dry my eyes, say my goodbyes and leave

You think that when a bullet comes, you'll dodge it
You probably won't, but what you can do, honey, is dislodge it

You're terrified by all the blood you're losing
But you should know that red is strength and covers all the bruising

You fear that when you die it means forever
It only means you're changing, and you'll come out somewhere better

You fear that when you die it means forever
It only means you're changing, and you'll come out somewhere better

I'm gonna have a funeral for the old me
Gonna stand in back in black and cry quietly
Gonna throw a kiss, maybe reminisce 'bout the way life used to be
Then I'll pull a white flag from my sleeve
Dry my eyes, say my goodbyes and leave

I'll pull a white flag from my sleeve
It means you're changing into something better
