I've been reading posts on this site for about 6 months now. I see how devastating hair loss can be for most women, but i feel far beyond devastated by it. Unlike some people, i know what has caused my hair loss. I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2008, and my hair has been falling out ever since. Tried all the medications, in lots of different doses, and nothing seems to help. Before my diagnosis, i was a happy, healthy person, with beautiful hair. That has all changed. I have attempted suicide twice in the last year, because i can't stand what this disease has done to me. Almost all my hair is now gone, along with my will to live. I cry everyday, all day, never leave the house, don't talk to anybody, and i feel like i'm living in a nightmare that i can't wake up from. I want to die so bad, it's all i can think about. How do you go on living with no hair ??? I read about people on here that do, but i don't get it. I feel like a freak. And the worst part being nobody understands what this does to a person. I've been laughed at by everybody, including doctors. They just think i'm vain, and i need to get over it. I just choose not to go on living like this. The pain is overwhelming. I can't be the only person that didn't want to live like this ( even though i feel like i am ). I feel sad that my life has to end this way. Hypothyroidism is a treatable disease, but that doesn't seem to be the case with me. Besides my hair, i've been horribly ill for 2 years. Being so sick, then having to deal with losing my hair, has left me a broken person. Death is so welcoming, i can't wait to be free of all this. Has anybody else felt this way ?????
