I started losing my hair in my teens also, but I was not given the opportunity to do something about it. Guess what, that was in the 80's. No medication, nothing at all, just accept it and move on. Thankfully I was lucky to keep a very young looking appearance even now that I am middle-aged. I was surprised how many times I heard it this year.

Hi ThisGayLife ,
I was lucky in that, although my hair loss began in my late 20s, it wasn't so prominent that I suffered. There was a time in my mid 30s that I had ALLOWED my hair thinning to affect me.
I believe it was because my own sister made a remark during a party at my home about my crown area thinning/losing hair with many friends and relatives listening.
That really disturbed me but I later got a hold of myself and carried on with my LIFE.
I had accepted my receding hairline and thinning scalp because I had no choice. At least back then i could not see a shinning crown and although my hairline was receding slowly , my face was still framed well enough.
My damned hairloss became prominent enough around 2004...thats when I started to really SUFFER from it!
To this day, I must wear something on my head in order to be somewhat comfortable in public,,and at home too.
Im 54 now,,at least with you young men (and women) once a decent treatment is available you will have a lot more years on this earth to enjoy it-more than I,,LOL.
