    My job interviews over the years.

    Ages 16-21 (1996-2001) I attended 6 interviews, getting 5 of the jobs in that 5 year time period. Not just any jobs - good jobs. Insurance company, Real Tennis Assistant proffessional to name a couple.

    Suddenly hair loss hits me, ages 22- present (2002-). Even though I act the same, which is normal - if anything, better - things are different.

    I attended 9 job interviews in the past 3 years but failed to get hardly any of them, only just scraping through in a couple.

    It is no coincidence to me. Itís because of my hair loss.

    People treat you differently.

    No one is going to help you.

    It all happens silently.

    You are on your own basically.

    No one will understand the situation you're in. Do not, I repeat do not even bother talking to parents about it.

    Even if you do and they say they understand, they do not.

    You're on your own with this. Only you can get it back to how it was. Probably via a HT.

    All in all, nothing is the same anymore. It's a far cry from before when you felt great when music would come on, for example.

    That doesnt happen with me anymore. Understand me here?

    Noticeable hair loss means your whole world changes.

    If I didnít have the hair-loss (or just had cosmically acceptable hair loss) then my attitude would be different, as Iíd be smiling the entire time, instead of putting on the fake face, that I now do.

    Now youíve mentioned it, hereís the cold water:-

    Been on Fin since March 2003 (Fincar, Proscar, Propecia) - with a 3 month use of Dut this year.

    It has failed me dramatically. When I started, I was the best candidate for fin, but it just is not cutting the mustard for me. I havenít had any sides or anything.

    Iím just not even getting maintenance, but I have to use it.

    Iím not saying itís a bad drug in general, but it has been for me.

    If this is the best drug we have.

    Fcuk. We. Are. Screwed.

    But most of us know the situation anyway, so...

    With regards to the Minox:-

    Been on Minox since (Mar-Oct '03) December 2003.

    We know what that is.

    Itís just massive straw clutching imo.

    And thatís just in a nutshell.

    One day I might write a few pages on my situation, whilst having a rifle pointed at my head, but I'm not quite in the mood now.

    Wow--hair loss is tough man.
    I remember having all those feelings at age 23 when I felt like I was doomed because of hair loss. The line about music struck a chord with me, as I remember having that same feeling in my early 20's (not getting excited about music).

    I've been fortunate that propecia has maintained what I had when I started, going on 6 years now (knock on wood). But I feel ya man.

    The impact hair loss had on me at age 23 has actually been an inspiration for me to attend pharmacy school.

    To be fair Gunner from the last lot of pics you posted it appears you're maintaning.. have you tried growing your hair out a bit and using couvre or summink? I know it's a pain but at least then your hair would be "cosmetically acceptable"... I can't go out unless I've just washed my hair and it's all fluffy or if I use gel I have to put couvre or nanofibres in

    And I don't think dut for 3 months is nowhere near long enough, some people have had no results with fin then gone on to dut and had amazing results!

    Good luck buddy

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I can't act normal. I don't get excited about stuff like I used to. True that Gunner.
