I lost a quarter-size patch of hair during an incredibly stressful period in December and it looked like some small hairs were coming back, so I decided to see what would happen. In the next six weeks, it doubled in size, so I went to the doctor last Monday and was officially diagnosed. I've had a round of shots and was hopeful that would stem this tide. But it seems to be accelerating! Right now my hair pretty much covers the tennis ball size patch, but it won't within the week. I am getting more and more freaked out that this thing is just going to continue and the medical and cosmetic solutions seem so overwhelming. I appreciate having all of you that have gone before to learn a bit from. If you have any advice for good places in Los Angeles for wigs or toppers, I would be grateful, as I'm pretty unsure of where to begin. Thanks.
