Hi Joanne Thank you for sharing your story. This is all so new to me. A couple of months ago I noticed my hair thining on top. After a haircut I looked at the top of my head and I could see bald spots! I went to my GP and he told me to try Rogaine (prescribed 10%) and said the only other thing I could do would be a hair transplant. I have had a very stressful 2 years. My mom was in the hospital for 8 months and now in a care home. She has dementia along with other health problems. My dad lives a couple of minutes from me still in his own home. My mom and I were always very close, sometimes I miss her so much. I see her alot, but we just can't communicate like we used to. Also, I've been going thru menopause. I went to see an accupunture dr. and she told me I'm borderline anemic and my hormones are way out. She also said that even though my thryoid blookwork came back normal that it isn't functioned up to par. She's given me some vitamines and teas. I feel so down and depressed. I just became a grandmother and have 4 beautiful children, but I just can't shake this feeling. I have a good husband who is supportive. I did get a prescription for sleeping pills from the Dr. but it's so hard to get through the day. I ordered a topper but need to wait about 5-6 more weeks for it. Feel free to post this anywhere else, if it is better suited elsewhere. Thanks again.
