I got hair!

Posted on December 13, 2011 at 10:30am 2 Comments

When I was a young girl I had long, thick, wavy brunette hair. It was so thick my mom used to ask hairdressers to "thin it out". Then at age 21 people began to point out a little thin spot in the center of my head near the front which grew progressively worse and worse. Of all the things I could have inherited from my dad, male pattern baldness would not have been my first choice.

Ten years before Rogaine was ever approved by the FDA for the treatment of hair loss I was already well…

I feel your pain about feeling ugly and I also was unemployed for a long time. I never knew how to go for interview, and all of my nice clothes look awful with my hair the way it is. I feel people treat me differently, maybe my hair, or maybe just because I am getting older, or the combination of the two.

Hey, I'm sorry you're sick!
Since I have been squeezing fresh lemon in my water every day, I have managed to elude all flue and colds! Elderberry extract helps, too. Get better!

I have had UC for 12 years. Luckily I have been able to control it with meds. I was on prednisone for 3 years straight. After I got off of it my hair got really thin, but didn't totally fall out until 3 years later. These autoimmune diseases suck! I think the hair loss is even more difficult than the uc! Are you glad you had your colon removed. There was a time I thought I was going to have the sugery too. Being on prednisone is not fun at all! For some reason I am in remission!

Hi! I just read your blog. Do you by chance have crohn's or ulcerative colitis? I have ulcerative colitis.
