It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
I thought I would write a quick blog about my experience. I am currently 38 years old. I had a full head of hair for 37 years. I lost my older brother three years ago and was severely depressed as he was my best friend. Shortly after I noticed my beard was thinning out then about a year later I had a bald spot on the back of my head that my barber noticed. Very quickly I progressed to universalis. Needless to say I was shocked at losing my hair and how fast it progressed. I work as an orthopaedic surgery resident and will be applying for fellowship then a job as a practicing surgeon soon. As everyone knows this kills your confidence and I hope it comes back with a little more time. I was rather cocky before my hair loss. I was in the Marine Corps out of high school then did really well in undergrad, medical school and residency. This disease just makes you feel like crap. I'm taking cyclosporine and Otezla which makes my stomach constantly feel gross. I grew most of my hair back for a short while now I have about half of it. My dermatologist is trying to get my on a JAK kinase inhibitor but I guess its not that easy and I work for the hospital. My stupid nose is always surprise runny as well. Oh well, I hope this thing gets cured one day because I would like my hair back. Sorry for the rant. I feel your pain everybody.
