» Would you say this to a kid who’s losing his hair, visibly, during high

» bothered about it?
ok, in high school when the kid is maybe dissed by the other kids, then its first no mental issue. but probably the kid will develope mental issues coz he is dissed.
and are you still in high school? i think not. so if you still worry that much about your hair, you probably got mental issues. could be coz you had this since high school…
you understand what i mean? i realized i was losing hair with 19 years. it was after high school (german “high school” system). but i got dissed by some guys, not directly, but indirectly. i got made fun of. i think it was coz i was self-councious. but i thought they did it coz of my hair. i think this is the reason i got mental issues now with my hair. if i hadnt some, i wouldnt be here. im thinking about doing a hair transplant and i think many if not most people who do such things do have mental issues. if you look at the look in their eyes of some people in the pre-op-hair-transplant pictures, they look very self-concious. this is coz of their hair and their mental state.
i’m actually hiding my thinning hair either with a cap or with a hair style which doesnt show it that much. no comb-over, but certainly i hide my hairloss.
i can’t say exactly and i probably get negative responses if i say that, but i think that many people on this forum got some mental issues. i dont know which or how tough, but i think so.
hairloss alone is no problem. it doesnt hurt you or make your body ill. but society sees it as something negative. so people suffer from it , who got it. its hard to tell if its society directly or mental issues people develope coz of society. the truth probably lies anywhere in between.
but one thing shows that people on this forum have mental issues mostly. its that there are happy bald people who dont care. there are some. you cant deny it. i dont say its the fault of the members of this forum. there are 100* as many people out there who got the same problems. so its normal to develope mental issues if you got hairloss. but it doesnt change the fact that you got them.
I admit i got mental issues with my hairloss. i dont deny it. problem is, i dont know how to solve it other than by a hair transplant. if i would work hard on it, i could maybe change it in 10 years. but thats a long long time and a hair transplant is a faster and better solution.
