Down the Tub

I first noticed I was losing my hair at the tender age of 29. I was in the bath and drained it. Normally what clings to the side of the tub is soap scum, and in my case is green (Irish Spring!). That fateful day, I saw something else clinging to the walls. Something black.

Without my glasses on, I couldn't quite make it out. I took a closer look and my heart fell into my stomach-- it was hair! MY HAIR. Not on my head, mind you, but acting as a new decoration for my tub, on its way into the municipal sewer system.

From that day forward, I vowed to fight on against this horrid affliction that has both psychological and physiological impact. Brothers and sisters in arms, we can beat this.

started losing it at 18. I fought it. Propecia and Rogaine. Held it off for didn't stop falling out just slowed way down. Then fast forward ten years I am in my 30s and ***** count was pathetic so was my sex drive. Got off the Propecia sex drive and ***** returned. But so did my loss of hair - at full speed. So I just put off the inevitable.

Everybody loses hair. It is not like it will never come out. If you are scared that you are going to lose all you hair, there is also a hair transplant option. Don't worry about it any more. Stress also causes hair loss.

i lose hair too, thank god not as much as I used to, I had very very long thick beautiful hair, I lost half of it, and I had to cut it short.
