Sorry to hear this clandestine. I went out but was ever paranoid about my hair.
Wish you the best!
Please try not to let it beat you.
Thanks for the well wishes, chrisis, much appreciated. Glad you're getting out man, even if you were a little paranoid. All the best.
I haveb't been coping well for years and Im much older than youtrself

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
I'm NOT coping with no ****ing hair loss!
**** THE SYSTEM!
As soon as my hair decides it's time to go, my body will go with it...LITERALLY.
I shall thrust a knife in my jugular vein and fall from the skyscraper.
If my genes can't at least save my hair, then **** THEM.
**** this shit body. I hate myself and I hate my parents for creating such an inferior being!
This is not a good attitude or approach.
The way I see it at my age, 28, having a transplant now buys me time - time to continue enjoying my image and whatever youth I have left. Time to socialise, excel in life and meet new people and a partner.
If I bald any further, then I guess I'll have to finance more treatments, but it's worth bearing in mind that within 5-10 years time we may have some new treatments, and maybe a cure. Until then I'd be using minoxidil and whatever else to give me as good a chance of "hanging on" for as long as possible. Worst case scenerio: I have a FUT at age 28 and by the time I'm finished paying for it, I need further work. So what? I'll just get more FUE and buy even more time!
Obviously it's a personal decision and circumstances different from person to person. I realise I'm lucky that I'm still relatively young and my hair loss is slow. I have also made maintaining my hair (and appearance overall) a priority. I don't have a car or mortgage and don't plan on getting married and having kids. I can therefore probably afford to spend some money now and then on this problem, and I believe it's worth it in my case. I acknowledge if you're older and/or your hair loss is more advanced, then it might not be worth it.
very OT, but wow not having a car makes things very hard don´t u think? I mean, in the relationships department. Much harder than hair loss I guess.
I don't have a car or mortgage
Take me for example: also on foot (no car), managed to get just one girl in 2 years. Of course this is coupled with my hair loss to reach such pitiful celibacy situation. But I know that I´ve lost at least 3 opportunities due to the lack of car.
Depends. Having a car in the UK is not as important as it is in America. Smaller country with better public transport. I can potentially travel the length of the country within a few hours on train or by plane. You'd be lucky to get out of state in America.
Also, in my situation I have a central city flat and the city itself has a good light rail system. There are few situations I'd need a car for and my apartment doesn't offer anywhere to park anyway.
