Even though my parents refuse to believe my hair loss is genetic and they don't have the same experience given that neither of them have lost their hair nor do they have a clue about what causes it and what available treatments are there, etc they have been so supportive through this all. I was initially a bit surprised by such a high amount of support because my parents had never raised me to place such a high emphasis on looks, my mom has never bothered with things like makeup nor extensive skin care systems and my dad despises people who make a big deal about things like acne, wrinkles, aging, etc. I've always felt it's because they're genetically lucky and had never really had any particular points of concern in regards to their appearance and look attractive so I didn't think they would understand as my femininity was being taken away from me through this whole thing. I don't look and feel like myself anymore and they've really understood the devastation this has had on me. My parents and my siblings have been extremely supportive going out of their way to help me with little things. I'm just so grateful because at this point in my life I don't have anyone else. None of my friends have reached out to me for a few months now and I haven't made an effort with them because all are making such great progress in life and while I don't envy them for that (except for their hair!!), it's been hard to talk to them when I have nothing positive to share about my life since January. I've really lost myself and my family is the only tie to the person I used to be 7 months ago. I really hope to return to the person I was last September which was easily the best month I've had in a long, long time and they're the main reason why I even still have that hope that it is even a possibility.
