    Default Just needing some guidance

    I am 45 and have been having excessive hair fall for the past year now. I have always had a lot of shedding--my mom and sisters do as well. A family trait. But I had hernia surgery in Feb 2018 and nothing has been right since. I have also experienced serious stress in my personal life and that continues to happen. My formally beautiful thick, Latina hair is a former shell of its past glory.

    It falls all day long and its everywhere: bed, shower, couch, car, desk at work. It falls like a leaf on a tree while sitting and doing nothing. I have cut my hair into a bob but my hair just keeps falling enough to where I think I may go pixie, just to deal.

    I have seen my DO, GYN, Naturopath, and Dermatologist. My blood work is great and now I am waiting on my hormone test. The DO didn't find anything wrong but did a blood test and sent me to a very nice Dermatologist, who thinks its maybe a mixture of hormones, stress and triggered by the surgery. She gave my Ketoconzole and Fluocoinde to help. The GYN said it may be contributed to being peri-menopausal and we are doing a hormone test to see. There is a possibility is could be hereditary as my Dad is bald but Mom still has a thick head of hair at 68--she still has to get it thinned out! COME ON!!!

    I have fallen into a deep depression and my husband is fed up. He tells me that yes it has thinned but I know have to buck up and be a positive role model for our 11-year-old daughter. And I need to stop obsessing about my hair. I cant work and this hair fall is going to drive me into the loony bin. If I died, it would be a welcomed relief to all of this.

    Can anyone understand me because no one in my personal life does or says it is ok. And its not ok.

    Hi, your story is awful, I`m so sorry that you have problems like that, but I``m sure that life isn`t over, you need to be stronger, only then you will overcome your fear. I remmember the time when I`ve downloaded one of cell tracking apps to monitor him and I found out that my husband is cheating on me. It hurt me so much, I had lots of health problems, I`ve lost almost all my hair, but I realized that I need to be a hero, so I started running, meeting with my friend so I fought this problem
