My Hair Loss Story

Started to notice thinning when I was about 27.  Didn't think too much about it, but over the last 2 years noticed an increase of hairs in the sink and sunshine on the scalp.  I have diffuse thinning in the front and fairly normal loss in the temples, so it wasn't anything that some hair product and careful styling couldn't handle.

A year ago I broke up with a girl after a 5-year relationship, and that's when I really started to be anxious about it.  I immediately started Propecia (or generic Fin, in this case), but each new date I went on, I couldn't help but think they were staring at my hairline.

Am I the worst case ever?  Hardly.  But I couldn't help but lose confidence since I was 'back out there' with a lot less hair this time.  I visited Dr. Cooley in April 2011, and then did a bunch of follow-up research and discussion.  Decided that life is too short to wonder 'what if,' so pulled the trigger.

How has my hair loss affected me?
