View Full Version : a visit to the Water Park

07-28-2010, 07:58 AM
I recently brought my kids to the water park. Being that i am a divorcee these opportunities do not come along every day. Over the past few years I have become accustomed to wearing a hat or a bandanna on my head. Im a Norwood 4a-5 and im not seen WITHOUT something atop unless im attending something very formal. (which i try my best to avoid at all cost) In anticipation of the park i fully expected to take it 'all off' and i was surprised and disgusted with myself when my anxieties would NOT allow me to do so. I went on 3 rides wearing a bandanna. I avoided any others that would have made it inevitable to 'disrobe' . I know my daughter was disappointed although she didn't make mention. Of course i saw not one balding person that wore anything on top. Just me. This MPB 'disease' has turned my self esteem upside down and i see no end to it.

Artista, I wish I was in your shoes. By that, I mean that I wish I did not have a hair transplant scar across the back of my head. I also have an unnatural-looking hairline in front. See? You should consider yourself lucky.

You are in a great position. You have the option of shaving your head. Or buzzing it short. You should embrace your baldness and start your new life as a bald person. There are a lot of worse things to deal with. You can pull it off. Go to slybaldguys.com and read about guys who have freed themselves from bandannas and hats.

Best wishes to you.

Stop worrying about it man. Most people will over look your balding and come to judge you by the way you act and your personality. I am about the same stage as you on the Norwood scale and have never hide my baldness. IF you really dislike it then buzz hair real short like Jason Statham. If anyone questions you just say your head was getting to hot with all that hair.
