It seems that my hair loss has been overnight -one day I had a thick head of hair, the next day it's gone. Actually, it's been going on for a year, but during the past 3 months I've reached the stage I call "scalp show" - when you can't find a hair part that doesn't show scalp. The only thing that works is a (shudder) comb-over. I'm scared, I'm angry, and I'm tired. I'm scared that I'm losing my identity. I've always been known as the girl (woman) with the gorgeous hair, and now it's gone. I'm scared I'll look like my sister, who has less hair than I on her scalp. And I'm scared that I won't be attractive to men. I'm angry at my friend who said when she was diagnosed with cancer that she feared losing her hair more than the cancer. I'm angry at the friend who said she wouldn't know what to do if she had hair loss - it's too awful for her to think about. I'm angry at my mother who said it makes her sick to look at me. I'm angry that I'm turning 60 this year and for a birthday present I get hair loss. I'm angry that the hairstyles that I selected from a virtual hairstyle website require more hair than I have. I'm angry that despite my research and consultations with a number of "experts", the hair continues to fall. I'm tired of feeling out of control, despite my full-scale attack on the hair problem. I'm tired of having scalp pain which is a harbinger for hair loss. And I'm really tired of looking in the mirror. Perhaps some of you share these feelings, too.
