A couple of years ago, I had sudden hair loss which triggered bad anxiety and depression. So much so that I couldn’t function. Last summer I had a dream job between semesters at school, but when I was there I couldn’t think straight my anxiety and stress was so bad that it seemed to make the hair loss worse. I subsequently had to quit school for a year and put all my money into getting a hair transplant. Now, one year later, I do have a better head of hair but I hate how much I have allowed hair loss to affect me and I regret that I let it affect me so much. Is this normal?
A World Champion weight lifter told me that he was able to control everything in his life, his body, his health, his education, his friends but the one stumbling block for him was his hair loss as he had no control over it. Many years ago, he had a hair transplant by a doctor who he said “mutilated him”. Yes, he had terrible hair transplants and my job was to fix it. After two surgeries, he looked good and we became close friends still to this day. He has met my entire family and even taught self-defense to some of my kids when they were in their late teens.
Hair transplants, in your case, did help you with a problem that was out of your control and it is a credit to you that you took charge of your life. It takes courage to get a surgery to deal with hair loss because sometimes there is no other option.
