Hi ladies, this is my first time posting on the site although I have been reading for a long time. Some background: I'm 23 and have been dealing w hair loss for 4 years now. I used to have the most beautiful thick long hair and began losing it at 19 after a bout of serious forced weight loss. I recovered from the rating disorder a year later but the telogen effluvium stuck around for about another two years. I lost about 60-70% of my hair. At the same time, at 19, I got a bald spot on the back of my head the size of a golf ball. I would later find out it was alopecia. Anyway I had cortisone shots and that grew back I about a year. I felt great and had gained back all the weight and was super healthy. I was home free till I turned 22 and found another on my birthday. I did the same thing and went through the cortisone shots and it grew back by this past July 2013. And of course you might guess why I'm here: I found another one tonight. I'm feeling so f**king frustrated. It's like just when you get your confidence back, it's gone again in an instant. I'm single for the first time in a long time and I just started my first job. I'm so scared of what the future has in store and I'm so worried that this is going to get worse. My hair isn't thick anymore so the spots are getting so hard to cover up. No one else understands. I told my best friend and she said, "don't worry I think it looks normal!" Like wtf kind of answer is that. I guess I'm just looking for some support from women who understand.
