First, don't apologize, there is no such thing as a long story, and second you're not the first member with an issue with alopecia.
While most would be against this, a short term fix would be to invest in some Toppik and put over the patches on your head, or another option would be to get the DermaBlend concealer and apply it either over the hairy parts of your head. (I only suggest you do this when you're going out and apply the Toppik or Concealer with a small brush or a Q-Tip
More expensive options would be to get laser treatments or to get scalp micropigmentation over the alopecia spots. Best of luck in whatever you decide if anything, and feel free to ask questions as needed
