I recently realized I was losing my hair and was very sad and nervous about what to do. I am currently looking into hair transplant surgery as an option. Last year the stress of my job was literally making me pull my hair out. Many mornings I would wake up and my pillow would have more and more hair on it.
I was scared. One morning after discussing the issue with my wife I decided to check into my options. Even though she said she would love me no matter what, I hadn’t decided if I would love Me as much. I was already dealing with the emotional effects of hair loss, and wasn’t sure if I would grow to accept it or not. In many cases I was told people are not affected by their impending baldness what so ever, I found that hard to believe.
I met with the doctor and went over all the different procedures that were available such as hair grafts, plugs, scalp reduction, and it was a lot to handle. He did a great job of helping me understand the results of each type of procedure and made me feel very comfortable about my decision. That night my wife and I looked over all the literature I was given. She was excited for me, and helped me through the process with the love only a wife can have.
I told her that I didn’t think I was ready for the surgery. We then decided to look at the topical hair loss products currently on the market. Everyone has seen at least one late night infomercial on hair loss, and I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of products out there. So I started checking blogs and information portals, after and immense search and trials, I decided on the surgery.
