By then, they would probably have put me through so much stress that no medicine would help me anyway and I would just shave it down.
Of course I am going to be concerned about balding in my early 20s when I am still in the hunt and playing the game.. because its not right when I look around and the vast majority of guys my age actually look there age
It doesn't work that way, it only seems that way sometimes when you're young.

This is why starting to lose hair is horrible at 55 just as it is at 20. However for those who start losing at 20 and live to 55, it can get easier since you've had so much time to get used to it. (Although some people never reach that stage.)
There are some especially bad aspects of starting to lose it young ,since as you say most of your peers aren't in the same boat and can't empathize. But overall it's actually not that different. When your body suddenly starts disfiguring itself due to a genetic mutation you can't control, it is highly depressing. In general, the idea that you will "break the spell" by having a marriage ceremony or popping some kids out is not correct, even though these things can provide some convenient distractions.
Another thing to consider however: most marriages are temporary, and most that aren't, do not stay monogamous (either because of cheating or mutually agreed "opening" of the marriage)
In real life there is Rush's "I think I am going bald"

If the meds keep working I hope to prove em wrong at the reunion next year, though they should already know that by my FB pics as both found me on FB last year.
I have a beautiful wife and a son.
Maybe I should stop jogging, eating well and getting sunlight too
Only if you ignore the fact that a whole lot of them -- including Humphrey Bogart, Ray Milland, David Niven, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Bing Crosby, Christopher Lee, and Burt Lancaster -- were in fact wearing toupees.
