Hi Everyone, I have decided to join this group as I'm at a point where I feel so alone and helpless in this journey. Reading all the support and success makes me feel a bit better as each day passes. My hair loss started when I was 19 after my mother passed away and continued for 6 or 7 years until I noticed it was actually getting a bit better and I wasn't thinking or looking at my hair everyday. I recently had a baby and decided to start rogaine. Between the dread shed and post partum hairloss my hair is at the worst it has ever been. I dont want to go out, I look and obsess over my scalp constantly wondering if rogaine will make me go completely bald. I want to stick with it as I'm only 5 weeks in and hoping the shed will stop. This is the state of my hair as of today (picture attached) I'm embarrassed and heartbroken that it has come to this point. I'm hoping in time I will see some improvement, but right now every hair falling off my head puts me in panic mode. Thank you to everyone who has been so brave telling their stories as it has inspired me to tell my own.
