I've been very slowly losing my hair since I was 19. It thankfully has been a very slow process and at 31 now it has just about reached the point whereby shaving it off completely is the only solution to stop looking like a young(ish) male desperately trying to cover up a (large) bald patch.
Over the years I've always managed to have hairstyles which more or less masked my thinning crop so was ok with it... I thought. It's only now that I've realised how it has more or less destroyed my confidence, made me very very self aware and I'd go as far to say caused me anxiety and affected me socially. I wouldn't say I am vein really but I have so many (possibly misplaced?) hang ups over being a skinhead. I worry over people's impression of me, how I will appear in job interviews or meetings etc. will people think I am a skin head thug? Does it add 10 years onto me? Am I a bit of a laughing stock with my slap head? Basically my self esteem is a bit battered and despite the fact I remind myself it's just hair I can't help but feel very anxious about it.
Any other fellow follicly challenged folk who have managed not to stress over it?
