    *sigh* everything is stuck in phase II or phase IIb trials.

    There is no cure and there won't be one in our lifetimes. Deal with it.

    Will you stop mocking Fred.. I get it, it's kinda funny. But, this is lame and probably offensive to him. Give the guy a break.

    I don't think men who say suck it up don't care care about their hairloss....they probably did at one point....but came to accept it and not dwell on it every waking moment....

    Agreed with it for the most part. Btw, I did openly admit that it was extremely depressing for me to lose hair. Fortunately for me, people didn't react that way, though. They did understand the problem and did say that they would "go paranoid" if it ever happened to them. They did sympathise. Not that that made me feel any better, but at least it did not make me feel worse either.

    The only thing I noticed was that doctors are extremely reserved and hesitant to prescribe anything for hair loss as one should accept baldness according to most of them (yup the Doctor was a NW1), even if you're a teenager. Of course, only a moron thinks like that.

    Once they have given up on life, yes, they will accept that all hope is lost, and resign themselves.

    I'm not miserable. But then again I'm not bald.

    Writing is the best form of therapy for me.

    I agree, it's quite liberating.

    Why do you need therapy if your life is so dope and you're banging 30 chicks an hour?

    If you think banging a lot of chicks will make you super happy and completely satisfied with your life, you're probably not banging a lot of chicks.

    But it's OK, most guys who don't get laid much think getting laid a lot will solve all their problems. Not really, at least in my experience.

    I've been dating the same girl for 3 years. I don't wan't to have sex with everyone I see. I value myself and my relationship more than that.

    Good for you if you feel happy that way. It's quite easy to do though, it's much harder to remain on the dating scene.

    I prefer to keep my options open and to live up to my potential.

    I hope you won't have any regrets later, once she inevitably leaves you because she doesn't love you anymore. Or for a better guy.

    I pity you. It must be awful seeing the world through a tint of paranoia and cynicism.

    I saw a note about people wanting to cure cancer before hairloss, I wanted to make a brief comment around it, I saw a show a couple days ago and they were talking about world war one and the use of mustard gas in ww1, the guy who invented mustard gas, Fritz Haber, got a nobel prize in chemistry in 1918, he made industrial scale production of fertilizer and it feeds about one third of the worlds population,paradoxically.
    Also, some of the millions of people that died from mustard gas exposure had autopsies done years later and it was discovered in the subjects and it was theorized by somebody that if mustard gas could destroy the white blood cells in humans as it did with some of the victims in WW1,it seemed likely they could destroy cancerous ones too, they experimented with a guy who had cancerous tumours who was suffering from great pain and his pain went away with one of the main ingredients in mustard gas after it was administered to him,it was a breakthrough in medical science and chemotherapy came from this.
    Just thought I'd share this with all of you, I found it very interesting.

    I understand what you are saying and I completely agree with it.

    Probably, when it comes to genetics research, it is a bit disingenuous to state that one disease is prioritary compared to another. The minute humans understand how to modify adult DNA and trigger virtuous behaviors in the body, there would probably be very soon new cures for lots of unrelated sicknesses. If a cure for hair loss is found and reveals something new about how the body functions, it should just be considered an advancement for the whole medical community.

    But hey, what are the chances that this happens?
