I feel your pain My hair is very similar to yours though mine is much worse. I feel the exact same way. I have two kids, 4 and 3, and I feel like I'm missing out on so much with them because my hair loss consumes my whole life. If I look in the mirror my day/mood is ruined and sometimes I feel like I take it out on my kids. It makes me feel even more horrible. I don't even feel like myself anymore. I'm too scared to take antidepressants for fear of more loss. I'm also terrified that my loss is scaring because of how shiny my scalp is. I'm going to a specialist in two weeks for a biopsy. I hate this and how much effect I let this have in my life. I'm only thirty years old!!
