    Default Never let your career slip

    I am getting older, and as much as hairloss bothers me, I have come to realise one's career is SO IMPORTANT.

    A good career, gives you:

    a) respect
    b) status
    c) the ability to pay for treatments

    and so on.

    If you are young and balding, don't let the depression screw you up from hairloss. Rather use that anger and frustration to ball it in your career.

    I guess at the end of the day, everyone wants to be respected and loved. The trouble with the hairloss sufferers whose whole life evolves around it; other areas of their life suffer (career) and they become an easy target.

    Looking back, I have no idea how I got through my Master's with this hair loss shit. I think the depression just came in wavy enough for me to get some enough done to scrape by. Just gotta stick with it, I guess.

    i agree that you got some good points. Also, do you your best to keep your health in check. MPB typical just hurts your looks and self esteem. A overweight or unhealthy body does a lot more than hair loss.

    It's all about perspective and not letting hair loss destroy your life. This is what Spencer Kobren preaches on TBT and his message has changed my life. It got me off my ass to work hard and become successful and it is the best advice that any young hair loss sufferer can get. Too many guys are trying to find a "cure" on these forums when the real cure is just coming to terms with it and living a good, successful life. Building a strong career will help you overcome a lot of what life throws at us.

    Great post yeahyeahyeah!

    I definitely lost a lot of earning potential because I spent 1.5-2 years unemployed/out of school, too depressed about hair loss to do anything with myself. However I did use that time to load up on finasteride and keto shampoo....this reversed my diffuse thinning enough to feel like life was worth living again.

    The f*cked up thing is, your appearance (which hair has a big effect on) can have so much to do with your success at work, even if your looks have nothing to do with your job. The world is a sick place

    Good luck if youre balding before college evens starts and you lose tons of potential in terms of your career.

    Bald men get paid less and dont receive the same positions z fact
