"Jmh485, I’m 35, diagnosed at 29. I agree about the Aldactone, I gained weight and decided to stop taking it after 9 months. My issue now is that my forehead is starting to look “weird”. The veins in my forehead are getting…"
"I'm not surprised. Doctors may claim that FFA isn't inherited but I claim that there is an inherited predisposition which is triggered by something like a hormonal imbalance or stress or whatever. My guess is that it is something like a…"
"Ha ha, only half an hour. You haven't even scratched the surface. By the look of your good side you have time up your sleeve. When I was at that stage I didn't even know I had FFA. I was a LOT further on before my daughter pointed it out.…"
"So okay, this is actually my « good » side. Here you get a nice view of my ear, and my shelves.
I see you what you mean about having to figure this out yourself. I just killed a half hour trying to find my hair - the only thing I…"

we seem to have the same problem. I too have a ton of hair, and am having a hard time being taken seriously when I go to ask about solutions for the rapidly receding hairline. My hairloss on the sides, which I cover with what I’ve got…"
"Thank you so much! I’m happy I’m able to hide it for now, but feel like those days might be numbered. I’m hoping to find a solution now and get comfortable with it so when I do make the transition I’ll feel somewhat better. I…"
I'm in Australia so you can't follow my tracks but I can tell you about my experience. I started out by trying cheap wigs and hairpieces off the internet just to get a feel for what I could do. And,by the way, you can cut a wig down…"
