It's gotten back to the stage where it was at before I started Propecia. Whenever I tug a bit at my hair, a few will come out. I sometimes sit here for a few minutes just tugging and placing them on a sheet of paper. It's terribly depressing.
I don't think people who know me notice it at all. Noboby would stare that long and hard at the top of my head after all.
It seems to me like you don't even want to get over this depression.. If your hair is better than mine I'll be really p*ssed off the way your talking!
I've lost HEAPS of density over the last 2 months purely because of stressing, and pulling hair out, and brushing, and washing consantly, etc.. If you don't stop NOW you'll make it WAY worse.. So stop..
Really man, it's not easy, but you have to make a big effort just to stop thinking about it It's hard, so you just have to force yourself to stop!
The finasteride is working! Just give it time to show results!
What Norwood are you? I don't know if my hair is better than yours, but I do what you do. I spend some time pulling hair out, analysing the top of my head, and so on. I do want to get over this depression, and I'm trying to not look at my hair as much as possible. It's hard, as I need to look at it every now and then to feel ok with myself in public, and if somebody is suddenly looking up at my head, I feel even more self concious.
