^ This is a critical question that deserves some attention... When I was diffusing strangely enough, I wasn't so bothered by it. Once the diffusion became much more prominent and the hairline disappeared I was truly gutted by my new appearance. Even though I still hate it, I've gotten used to it but it took many years just for me to get to that point. What I will never get used to though is others reactions to my bald head. Every time someone snickers at me or stares at me with that shit eating grin on their face or when womens faces shrivel up when they look at me... just tears open those old wounds all over again. So, it has to be the negative perception of baldness that is the real killer and constant agitator for me.
