Realised hair loss in April 2016.
Several drs told me “it happens, stop worrying”. I cried, I cried a lot, I worried a lot more. I was 31 and wanted to know why me.
Moved house and saw another dr, she’d Lost her hair during her Cancer battle - yet in front of me, she sat with a massive mop of hair having had it all grown back. She empathised, she referred me for steroid injections as she agreed it’s hard to take whe hair changes - it’s a massive part of a persons identity.
I have never been precious about My hair, I really am not that girlie.
Suddenly I care, suddenly I am panicking about what’s going to happen.
The injections helped it return and slow down loss. I had less than a 5p piece patch at one point.
So the dr stopped my injections.
I’ve moved again, in a lot of ways I am the happiest I have ever been Barr a vicious divorce from my ex and an on going custody battle with my ex and my partner is going through the same.
My hair loss is upto about 40/45% of my head. I get married in October 2018. It’s getting harder to disguise. My confidence is at an all time low.
I currently have topical steroid cream.
Dr again on 6/12 I am praying they will restart injections.
I have tried Zinc tablets, reducing caffeine, herbal hair supplements tableta.
Any tips as I am scared and it’s making me miserable, it itches too - really itches
