I haveb't been coping well for years and Im much older than youtrself
THis hairloss has consumed friggen my life
I don'ty let people get close to me because of it
I avoid situations at all costs
Ruined my life and I admit it's all my fault for lettting it get the better of me
I had 1 HT 12 yrs ago an aas expected further hairloss has occurred so much so that I have now the dreaded " bald crwon"
The Ht last OK for about 8 yrs
I have no desire to go back for further surgeries
I 've reviewed everything and I dont want to take the chance that the next surgery will result ina huge scar , shock loss, plus I know the results will still give a thin look
Right now Im down to a 2 guard and no visible signs of the scar ...a small indentation on the right side but you have to know what u are looking for to nocice it
Every day is a chore for me
Wake up, shower and try to style the mess on my head so it looks presentable
Sometimes I think getting the HT was the stupidest thing I ever did but I have to admit going completly bald just scared the shit out of me
Now I m goign through thoughts of buzzing it to a 1 guard but I am equally terrired the scar will scream " HA I R T R A N S P L A N T " !!!
I had some other fellows e-mail me pics of their head after they shave after a HT
They are happier than ever now but Im not sure I could deal with a giant friggen scar on my head for everyone to see
Look at Joe roggan ( comedian and UFA announcer ) he got fed up and shaved it
I tried a shrink , depressions pills , a psycotherapist to talk to , long hair , short hair.
I just get get over it how uncomfortable I feel
Yea Im f*cked up and I know it
At least I got good job , Im healthy and I have a roof over my head
Thanks for letting me vent for today
For the rest of you try to deal with it head on ( no pun intended ) - just buzz it off .
Don't try to fight something that you have little chance of winning
Youy will need 3 4, 5 HT's to get good coverage ( see Joetronic , Spex ) or else you'll have a HT that is basically a glorifed comb over with a bald crown
