I always knew I'll be bald someday. My dad was already half bald when he married my mom at 40 (yeah he's quite old now). But I didn't expect my hair to start thinning before I turn 30 but that's what happened. And now that I am 33 the top left half of my hair is so thin I have to do some creative comb over to prevent the bald spot to be too obvious. I am even afraid of going to barbers too often for fear one of them may accidently cut too much of the hair that's critical of covering the bald spot. I have tried a prescription med that have grown some of my hair in time for my wedding, but the side effects gave me rapid heart rate and I was forced to stop taking it so I can sleep at night. On one hand I suppose being bald isn't the end of the world. I still have my health and my family's health and being that its in my gene it's inevitable I'll be losing my hair, but on the other hand I am terrified of getting bald. I got a youthful face and having bald spot can make me look 10 years older. It's also hurting my self esteem which isn't high to begin with. So my question to the board members is: Is any of you balding when you are still young (20 or 30 something) and how do you deal with it? Is any of the treatments out there worth going after, ie hair transplant, wig, medicine, etc? And for those of you who decides to let it go bald how do you deal with it? Many thanks to your advice/suggestions to a guy who's struggling to come to grips with the reality of going bald.
