Today,my baby had her first appointment with the phyc Dr. She finally got some medication to help level her off. She is not feeling all that great. But,she is now feeling good that she has her prescribed meds. She needs to take them for a month to see how she does on them. She and I both were on those pills before. We both lost our hair as well. I don't know if you would be able to take that kind of hair loss. I know I am shame to go out in public now. I did not know the loss was as bad as it is. The left side is out as well. here you see the top of my head. I will now be wearing a wig when it arrives. I know my daughter will not be as easy as I am about this. And today I almost bust out crying thinking about wearing a hot wig in the summer. I really miss my hair but the pills I am on I need for control of my mental illness.

Wear a hat or a scarf when you go out. You have to do what is best for your health.

Why not to wear a warm hat now and a light hat in summer? It's better than a wig and protects from the sun.

Hi sharon. Sorry to see you have lost so much hair. Yeah if it is the meds doing this, then some products and the natural things I told you about will help but maybe not stop it..I know you need those meds. Glad to hear your baby got hers too.

I would think the doctor would see this, and have something else to prescribe for it due to side effects, or find another medication.

@sharon6345 If it works then I wouldn't mine hair loss. I had one meds I was on that worked but had this feeling of bugs crawling on me I put up with that for 3 years before the meds stopped working.

So sad, but your hair would grow again, but the pain remains and may become severe if no medicine to take and cure .

It is best to think of your health, not aesthetics. Think nobody pays medicines, no street or strange is when you feel bad. Nobody gives you good morning except your closest loved ones, nobody puts food on the table ... So why heeding what others THINK? Dedicate be happy, if you do not want to wear a wig donĀ“t use a wig, and far from it, teach your daughter the same. The self-assessed and raise the self-esteem we learn at home with our parents, when we have so sad and ashamed same parents are the children and repeated patterns of behavior. Teach him that for others accept it and love it as it is, first she must love and accept herself as she is.

Like other people say you have wear a hat in the summer. I have seen gardening hats that are lightweight you can wear.
