baldness, like genetics. I'm on some treatments for it but whith not much result. Loosing my hair so young at 20 has really taken a massive Hi everyone, I'm a 20 year old male and I think I'm suffering from anxiety a bit. (Sorry if this is a big read!)
This year has been a really weird one. I'm on a gap year before I will start university next September. I've start to notice I have began to loose my hair (frontal & crown) I've had this checked and it's due to male pattern blow to my confidence. I use to be a really outgoing person, plying lots of sports, going out with friends, doing with family etc. I always use to have a smile on my face and laugh about anything but now I never seem as happy
Even for simple things like going for football training, eating out with friends, I get really nervous beforehand, sickley feeling in my tummy. Sometimes I actually am sick from the feeling. This happens espepcially before i go to eat out at a restuarant (feeling really sick and anxious before going out to it). It's the same for sports, I know it's silly but find myself worrying! I always use to like been with big crowds of people and having loads of different people to talk too but now especially when I'm with people my own age, I feel pretty uncomfortable to be around them because of my problem, like everyone my age seems to have lovely hair and i just have thinning crown and temples and some frontal too, it's so annoying! This has really had a massive impact on my life, I constantly worry about how I look like (I'm not vain!). I never worried about this ever before but when I started loosing my hair a bit, it made me much for self conscious. I'd love to try and cure all this, especially the eating out a restaurants bit and not having to feel ill before hand. I've recently started a part time job as a waiter which my parents really pushed me to do before university. I know it will be good for me but I feel so sick and nervous just thinking about it, especially when I have to serve women, I always feel like a mess haha! I'm going to the gym and still practicing my sports, so I'm trying to keep as busy as I can. It does help but nothing really has changed so much. I really want to sort this before next September because I don't want to go to university in this sort of a state If you read this, thanks so much! Best wishes everyone,
