The only things that I'm looking forward to is a cure for hair loss. It probably seems peculiar that hair loss could do so much damage to a person's psyche but there are some things to consider:Guest-4 wrote: ↑1 month ago That's a really elegant and thoughtful post nameless. One of your best. Thank you for sharing.
Are you looking forward to anything else unrelated to your hair?
Remind me, how old were you when you started balding? At what age were you NW3?
I agree that there's been too much bickering on this site which has caused several people to leave. Perhaps in time things will improve to a new equilibrium.
1. Bipolar people are what psychological researchers call "hypersensitive". Regular people would probably call us "too sensitive". But keep in mind that Bipolar people have experienced (I'm sure you've heard this term) early childhood trauma so they carry psychological pain with them into adulthood from out of their childhoods. So adult bipolar people have psych damage from childhood to start with and then when some other troubling stressful event happens to them it's more psych pain piled on top of the psych pain their walking around with since childhood. It gets compounded. People can get mad at me all they want for taking hair loss too hard but it goes with the territory of being bipolar to be too sensitive about stressful situations. When people get mad at me for taking hair loss too hard they're just proving that they don't understand much about bipolar disease even though the words early childhood trauma are very famous words and most everyone has heard those words.
2. Baldness really is a disfigurement. And hair loss has not changed the way I look a little bit. Hair loss has changed the way I look a lot. And the dramatic change is for the worse, not for the better. Add that to the fact that being bipolar makes me hypersensitive and all of that together probably explains why I'm having so much trouble being bald.
3. I've been losing my hair since my early 20s and I got to NW3 in my 30s. It's been awful ever since. It was about NW3 when I became horrible looking.
4. I'm 50 now.
5. I'm tired of the fighting here. If it doesn't stop soon I may stop posting here. I'm already lowering the amount I post here. There's just no reason for all of this fighting. I know I'm part of the fighting here and I pledge here and now that I'm going to slam the brakes on my part in the fighting. This is supposed to be a safe haven for hair loss sufferers. If you don't believe me here's the motto of the site - "A safe haven for hair loss sufferers to discuss how balding affected them and hopefully find solutions."
