Yes, I have several young customers who are REALLY struggling with it! I try to tell them; "Buddy, everything is going to be alright!" But they just cannot hear it!
You know, somehow, weirdly, it was easier for me when the medication/stress made my hair fall out - - - because I had no choice; it happened rather quickly (months not years); and I couldn't/didn't have the opportunity to dread a slow and steady onslaught! It just "happened"; it was just one more kick to the groin on a long list of very bad news.
Even now, when after three years, enough of it has come back that I can wear a rather "limp-wristed" version of my formerly glorious flattop now and again; I still know that it can fall out again at any time; but now I know that "everything will be alright".
Indeed, this coming Saturday I will be getting my head shaved as part of a "fund-razor" that some guys are throwing for me and for my service dog!! And I am not stressing about it all that much and I will keep it sly for the foreseeable future.
