View Full Version : I got the lucky gene

08-11-2013, 02:15 PM
I am 31, and I am seeing some major frontal hair loss on my head and I don't anticipate the loss to stop anytime soon. You can see a picture of it in this thread I posted not too long agohttp://www.baldtruthtalk.com/showthread.php?p=139998#post139998

The thing is, no one in my family has hair loss problems. Not my dad, not my mom, aunty/uncle, cousins, grandpa or grandma on either side. Why me? I thought sometimes hair loss could skip a generation, but this is not the case. So, I guess I got the lucky gene in the family and got this hair loss thing I gotta deal with.

On the other hand, I am so glad I found this forum. I don't talk to anyone IRL about my HL problems. Sad to say, but glad to find so many people on here that has the same hair issues as me.

Sometimes you are just "lucky". My dad was the lucky on in his family. All his brothers in there 60's or older pretty much had a full head of hair. Even his dad had most of his hair and he lived till almost 100. My dad on the other hand NW7. Good news is I am "lucky" too.
