I hit my 4 month mark on the 22nd, and thought I would post my time line for people to see that are considering starting treatment.

I was gonna wait till the 22nd, but I don't think much will change in 4 days... but I think it has helped me a Lot.

I messed up in an early post, I thought I started it September 22nd, I started it August 22nd, noticed in the times on my photos and my ebay account.

This first pic is August 23rd, when I decided to take some pics as time went. The next is 2 days later, decided to take a pic in less harsh conditions.. I always thought the photo looked worst than it actually did because of the lighting... but that could of been denial. The 3rd is also from the same day, just a close up under less harsh lighting.

The 4th is 1 week later, I decided to cut my hair short so I could get a better look at what I was dealing with, and I thought the rogaine would be easier to apply -- It was.

5th and 6th is Day 10 in that harsh light again.

7th and 8th is day 10 in normal light.

9, 10, 11 and 12 is from day 21 in different lighting and angles.

13 is the 1 month mark.

14th, 15th and 16th and 17th is 3 month mark.

I skipped month 2 because it was nothing but shed really. I should of taken a picture, but I barely wanted to look in the mirror. If you get the terrible shed, you need to make a life choice. Either push through it and hope it all comes back, or give up, hope some regrows, and count your loss.

I'm glad I pushed through.

Last pic is from 2 days ago, so technically 6 days short of my 4 month mark.
