    Well what can I say? I posted 4 years ago here, talking about how I wanted to do something about my hairloss. I ordered 3 strips of finasteride and took it. I don't know if I did well or not since I stopped checking a month after. I grew my hair out again and ignored the issue. 6 days ago I decide to go get a hair cut. I decided to go rather short (shorter than I have in years) and bam. Its that depressing feeling again. This time its worse (no crap).

    Here is my baseline:

    I ordered a year supply of finasteride. Now I have to take it. Suggestions.

    (post from 4 years ago: http://www.hairlosstalk.com/interact/showthread.php/38808-Night-s-Story-(22-Diffuse-Thinner) )

    This time I will FORCE myself to start posting every 3 months with updates. I don't want to get on minoxidil unless I don't get the thickening effect from finasteride. Though most of my loses are from the vertex and some crown. The hairline right now doesn't bother me at all. I wouldn't mind a NW1 like most people here want (and take a ton of stuff they don't need to get).

    God it has only been 7 days since I got a hair cut and have been depressed every minute after. I know eventually I will be OK with being thin on top. I know i'm not in the most worse shape and seen success stories of people. I hope finasteride helps me.

    Here are some wet pictures. Now i'm more depressed.

    Fingers crossed Antman.

    When I took the wet pictures I really looked and noticed that my hair is thin all over my scalp. I was a bit scared and never seen this. Diffuse thinning is rare in my family (they all have temples and then crown, then end up in a NW5+ pattern as they age). So I found Telogen Effluvium and DUPA?

    I just assumed it was MBP, but there isn't a bald spot anywhere, just less hair. Should I bother with a test? I have always had poor diet, fixed it this year but for weight loss (Think about 3 square meals, under 1,000 calories. I Know, I'm insane).

    Also no, I don't get shedding and I never woke up one day with a ton of hairs everywhere. It has always been sloooooooow. When I was 16 my mother was dying my hair and she noticed that my hair was 'thin' as she said. What do you guys think?
