Balding men will never have the best experience in life

Post by Baldingat20 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 7:21 pm

The best experience in life isn’t having a good career or being rich .. it’s about your mental health. The experience of having a good youth is so critical - it sets up the foundation for your life. Your youth is short and once it’s gone it’s gone. I’m willing to bet people who have a fulfilling youth lead much happier lives even when they are old cause they don’t have to look back with regret.

I’m not saying anyone’s life is going to be movie level perfect. But just the experience of going out with friends carefree, dating around and hooking up ... traveling and falling in love. That’s what life is all about . Unforatnley the majority of people who undergo hair loss don’t get to experience this at all. Hair loss makes your mental health go to shit because you looks go down the drain in most cases . Then your forced with the almost laughably bad choice of allowing yourself to go bald or “treating your hair loss “. Basically do you want to be ugly or have a lifetime of willingly messing with your body causing you doubt every little change. If you have anxiety or any other mental health condition this emotional roller coaster is maginfied. In either option you won’t get that care free youth experience . I’m sure some people can tolerate finasteride fine but it will always be there lurking in the back of your mind. Not to mention even if it doesn’t cause severe sides I’m willing to bet it reduces most people’s libido and leaves you feeling like a 50 year old man. As someone who is currently facing this dielma.. I hate taking finasteride yet I can’t stop taking it . I can’t “allow myself to go bald” so I have to put up with it for now. I don’t know if it’s in my head or what but regardless hairloss really screws you over no matter what happens.

How do you even live knowing you never got the most important human experience ? I can’t even imagine the regret I’ll feel at 40. I think people should be prioritizing quality over quantity when it comes to life. Living old is meaningless if you don’t have a good life. Watching your body decay and your mind filled with regrets? What kinda life is that. Humans were never made to live to old age anyways.

You will have this experience with a lot of "diseases" that are outside of the hair loss community.

If you have for example a mental illness and let's say you have all the outside validation that makes you happy (hot wife, money, family, friends, (fame?)...) you will still not enjoy your life "fully" despite having everything. Many celebrities go kill themselves and they have everything that people want. Chris Cornel the singer (thick fucking Hair) had a life way better than anyone could wish for and he still was thinking this world isn't worth living for and killed himselve.

I spend my teen years quite like an incel life you could say. And when I was older, I wanted to get this time back and make up for it and I did. But it takes effort. I went out countless times meeting new people to socialise. Went out countless times meeting new women to date. For both, I had countless of fails. If you push through, you will end up way more interesting than a Guy that basically had to do nothing and everything "just happened bruh".
Ever talked with a girl that had a princess life? Nothing is more boring than having a conversation with a human being that went to no struggles. Nothing.

But if you don't want to take Medication, hair system, SMP, saving money for hair transplant, going to the GYM, stop jerking off so you actually have a boner etc nothing will change. Balding as a lot of disseases, puts you into a position to act or be misserable (or more..)

And to add here: How is sex with women since you are one Finasteride compared than when you did not take it?

Damn how long were you on for? I didn’t think finasteride was giving me problems but I’m now thinking back to the time I’m on it and I rarely feel sexual. Maybe I’m just not A very sexual person though. I think complete Ed would be far worse than hairloss though

I’m not the guy you want to be asking about sex lol... I haven’t had any sex in over a year. I actually lost my virginity when I first started finasteride and was ok at performing a few times. I think things have changed though, at least psychologically . I’m not sure how it would go if I tried to have sex now.

So you are jerking to porn for a year and I guess almost daily right? Finasteride is the least of your problems. I'm saying that because I see so many people starting with Finasteride and they quit after 2 weeks because of "muuuh ED" despite that they are addicted to porn and don't even have sex so there is nothing really to compare to it. You even lost your virginity with Fina and performing a few times so you are fine. Lots of people can't even get it hard on their first time because of being nervous as fuck and you despite taking the "makes my dick ED bruh" drug did it.

I know right ? It makes no sense. I’ve already been able to perform on finasteride, so I’m not sure why I’m getting this anxiety now. I definitely have these issues caused by anxiety though and not due to porn- I actually rarely watch porn. I do think that the combination of anxiety + weakened libido from finasteride can hurt though. Like I mentioned certain sides such as no morning or night erections can be attributed to an actual side affect. Regardless I’m still willing to put up with it for the time being.

Well if you do not watch regular porn and you don't have any sex, you should for sure have morning erections. Maybe stress/anxiety in your life is fucking it up? I had "problems" in the past when I slept for the first time (way before I even knew what Finasteride was) with a girl because of being very nervous my dick was half hard which wasn't that nice. Anxiety can do a lot. Maybe get your Testo tested?

I do get morning erection sometimes but they are very weak only like 50% hard . Super weird I don't know. I might get test checked.

Yea that’s a really hard choice to make. Being totally impotent would be pretty damn bad though. A reduced libido is one thing but complete Ed ....

Imagine being attractive cause you have hair and girls taking interest in you only to tell them you can’t do anything with them ... yea I’d rather just be rejected at first glance for being bald. Now if In theory I could pop a viagra and be fine , I’d choose viagra and hair or bald .

lol, I've been on finasteride for 10+ years and my penis works fine. I have been on strong mind altering drugs that are known for sapping libido; those drugs did take away my desire but as soon as I stopped them my libido was right back up again - by comparison, finasteride made no difference.
I think a lot of people are just weak minded, they read reports of finasteride sides and shit their pants, then when it comes to performing, all they can think about is the post on propeciahelp and they get worried, this anxiety stops their boner. That is all it is - if their finasteride was fake, they would still have problems with their erections as it was all in the mind to begin with.
also, what is the point of having a strong sex drive if you are bald? it is like having a nice new car but having no driving license - you can't use it.

also, as far as bald experiences; I still feel bitter about being bald, like my life is half over; the good times are gone. Even though I would never be a movie star or a rock musician, when I was Norwood 1 I could still fantasize about being in a movie. Being bald, I can't even imagine being in a movie, or walking down the street and having girls appreciate me.
Occasionally I go on fan art websites but it makes me bitter when I see fan art of a NW1 guy in some beautiful scenery, say swimming in some tropical paradise. Before I could imagine being in that situation, but being bald I no longer can as it just doesn't fit. It is hard to explain but that is how male pattern baldness warps your mind, it basically turns you into an old man.
When I was a kid I was always forced to get my hair cut very short, but I always wanted it mid length and when I'd day dream or even have dreams at night I always had mid length thick black hair. But now sadly a lot of my dreams actually include baldness, say I'd be really happy in a dream then I'd see my bald head in a car window and the happiness would instantly evaporate as the truth dawns.
