I've been going through a but of a crisis around aging (and dying). I recently noticed that my hair seems to be thinning, but I'm not sure if that is what is going on or i am just freaking myself out about aging. I'm 38, and my mothers father started losing his hair around this age. I had a little bit of temple hairline recession, but it's moved pretty slowly, and I was fine with that. Now it seems to be making inroads, and I think I'm seeing a lot of thinning when compared to sides. Let me know what you think, and if it is thinning, is this something Rogaine could help (scared of side effects of finasteride)?
