And it used to just be empty on the inside [Dec. 7th, 2007|06:57 am]
I noticed this week that my hair is falling out. To the point where I am actually starting to go a bit bald in front. I don't know if this is stress from work, delayed stress from my dad dying, my thyroid meds, genetics, or all of them rolled into one big bald ball, but...yikes!!

And just in time for my upcoming 30-year high school reunion. Hey, on the bright side, if I have no hair, maybe people won't notice my jowels!

My doctor said my thyroid meds would actually stop my hair from falling out, so it's probably not those!

Maybe it depends on the specific meds? Mine lists hair loss as a possible side effect. Although I've been taking them quite a while and it seems unlikely that I would suddenly have a new side effect after all this time.

Heh. I think *every* woman worries about that.

Men don't. They look *gooood* with the spider comb-over.

The first two things I always asked my clients to do when their hair begins thinning is: 1) Have your thyroid checked and 2) Have your sugar level checked. Everything you listed could be all rolled into one, like you said.

Gosh, only you would come up with something like that for looking at the bright side. LOL!

My forehead is getting longer these days due to my hair loss. :( You're not alone.

I've been feeling generally run down lately, so I think maybe it's a lot of things rolled into one. I promised myself I'd make an appointment for a check up this week and haven't done it yet - my bad.

I already had a forehead of Frankensteinian proportions, so I really don't need any help in that department!
