    How hairloss affects my life in a very strong way

    How hairloss affects my life

    Every day i spend half an hour from getting into the shower to go out of the house fully clothed, because it takes me a lot of time to use minox and to blow-dry my hair afterwards

    Every day I try to avoid windy places because it messes up my hair.

    Every day I meet people, I can see their eyes looking at my high forehead and my hairloss.

    Every time I meet a girl, I feel uncomfortable because of my hairloss. I don't even try anymore to get a girlfriend, I am so ashamed of my hairloss. I am now single for 2.5 years without any girl being slightly interested in me. I gave up hope already of having kids or having a family. That's one of the hardest parts.

    Every day I spend so much money in order to slow down my hair loss.

    Every day I fight against starting taking finasterid, because I DON'T WANT to grow breasts, fall into depressions, have bad sperm quality and errection problems. I just use minox, kertoconzal shampoo and nettle shampoo.

    Every time I meet the rest of my family (which mostly has no hairloss), I have to listen to jokes they make about bald people.

    Every day I hold myself back at work, because I am afraid to lose more hair if I work to hard.

    Every day I think about other options to slow down hairloss.

    Every day I imaging myself with no hair, to be prepared for the day when I cut the rest of my hair off.

    Every day my hair decides whether I am in a good mood or in a bad mood.

    There are days, I don't want to live, because this hair-thing affects my life so badly (see above or other topics) and it's only getting worse and i cannot change it.

    Re: How hairloss affects my life in a very strong way

    I don't buzz it shorter, because i have a very high forehead since I was born (twice as high as normal). I try to use my remaining hair to make my forehead smaller, I feel more comfortable that way. But since I lose so much at the temples and the rest of my head, my foredhead keeps growing.

    Applying minox is pretty okay for me. After blow drying it, my hair gets kind of stable, as if I used hairspray. Feels more full that way.

    Also I have to admit, it affects my life so much, that there are days when I prefer to stay at home rather than going out and partying. Not good: staying home makes you even more sad.

    I think in about 2 years i will have to shave it all of and use a razor everyday for my head and be grumpy and cranky all day.

    Even though I've been slowly losing hair since 2003, it started to get bad in 2008 which is when I lost probably 60 percent of my density by that point.

    So, from June 2008 until March 2010, I went through everything that you just stated. It really does destroy your soul. Even though I've reversed the process, I'm still trying to recover from the several years of psychological damage that the hairloss rendered on me.

    In addition to the things you mentioned, I also went out of my way to avoid mirrors. When at work, I would avoid using the bathroom as often as possible, and when I had to, I'd walk past the mirror without looking at it, but knowing it's there, and use the sink away from it. This was especially the case when I would get out of the shower, I would not look at my hair when it was wet.

    In my case, I was trying everything that I could find knowing that my back was against a wall, but I had a little bit of time before my hairline would slip into oblivion, so I kept frantically trying things, having to know when to move on to something else because my time was limited. For me the stakes were especially high because I've had long hair since I was 15 (1997) and I don't have a headshape that would look good bald, or with a shaved head.

    The thought of going from "the guy with long hair" for most of my life to "the bald guy" was just too much to take.

    But yes, I can totally empathize with you, I spent so much time avoiding social interactions and functions that I've fallen out of contact with many of my friends because I became too hard to get ahold of, and when I did get out, I was always too consumed by my hairloss to have a good time. Also, anything good that would bring me joy in life was negated by the nagging remind that "but I'm still losing my hair" and the smile would quickly turn to a frown.

    Yeah but 'apparently' (if you believe some on here) they have to pay for it.

    it is not your lack of drink, but muscles or face thats the reason. The only reason they'd want you to drink is so you focus on that and dont hit on them I don't even go to partys, at least not till I get more muscle on my arms.

    exactly, you best save up for it.
    Halifax puts the average price at 163,845 in December 2012.
    The Land Registry's report showed the average home in England and Wales worth 158,94
    The average home in England and Wales according to Nationwide is worth 162,262.
    Average UK house price rose to 162,000 last year, says the Land Registry.
    Halifax said the average UK house price rose to 168,521 in March.

    My parents place is worth 350K, thus it is well within upper middle of the housing market.

    Can you or someone else please explain something to me.

    I know losing hair sucks, but if it is such a big f'ing deal, why is there such a lack of activity on hair loss forums? I've only in the last 2 months started to do research into hair loss and I thought there would be many forums to visit with lots of suffers. I have found the complete opposite.

    If you look at the stats of hair loss suffers it is high, yet these forums aren't that active. So the question is why? You can go visit a sporting team forum and it will be full of activity with far less people following that team than people suffering from hair loss.

    I'm having a hard time dealing with my loss as well, but lets get a grip on reality.

    Because the real truth is this forum is a place for the emotionally stunted.
