  1. Yeah, at this point probably. I am actually seeing a therapist now due to my anxiety, and they are pretty sure I have OCD at this point. BDD is probably likely too. Therapy has been helping as I haven't been posting and obsessing about my hair as often as I was back in April/May/June/July... but I am still finding myself worried and freaking out from time to time. I guess now I am at the point where I am still worried about the fact I keep shedding a lot of hairs, and I swear my hair feels thinner than it used to... but that could just be my own anxiety causing me to convincr myself myself it felt thicker in the past. I guess the stress over this can't be helping, and I did find out I had a Vitamin D deficiency a few months ago that hopefully improved with supplements. I at least am going back to a dermatologist in two weeks for a 7 month followup to my last visit. Hopefully they can tell me if there have been changes or not
  2. I take it the part looks fine then and I just let my anxiety get the better of me... again?
  3. So its been a few months sinceI last posted picture, not to mention its been a year since I first started worrying about balding. Here are some pictures of my crown from today For comparison here are some from a year ago So while I am not certain, I don't see much of a change comparing those as well as the ones I took in in the months in between now and a year ago. I am not going to even bother with pictures of my hairline, as that hasn't budged at all on the past year That said, I am kinda worried that I am losing density all over now. Been shedding a lot still on and off. I took some pictures where I parted my hair to see if it looks bad or not, and I am worried it looks quite thin. However I may be freaking out about nothing. I honestly don't know anymore.
  4. Okay, thank you. I am just trying to keep an eye on it at this point and check every few months to be safe.
  5. Sorry to bother everyone again, been getting really freaked out by the fact my shedding has increased. Does the crown still look fine in the pictures I took today? Or should I be worried?
  6. Do the most recent pictures of the crown look fine? Or has there been any change sincr earlier ones
  7. I have been hesitant to start fin and minox due to being concerned about the side effects when at an early stage. And for my hair feeling thinner, I honestly can't tell if it is or not. Sometimes it feels thinner, other times it does not.
  8. Just wanted to leave some more pictures now that it has been a few months (8 since I first started worrying about this) and since I got a bit shorter haircut then I did the last few times. Does this still look normal?
  9. Okay, thanks... I've been pretty much going back and foward between realizing I am having anxiery over nothing, then switch back to freaking out again, and so on. I just need to get this under control then somehow.
  10. Anyone? I am still a bit concerned due to finding hairs of thinner diameter than others among those I shed, but I am not sure if this is miniaturization or not. It has me quite scared still. On the other hand, everyone said my crown looked normal and the hair doesn't seem to have changed in the past six months (may actually look slightly better now, but I am not sure) What should I do at this point? Try to find a dermatologist who can do a miniaturization study? Or just relax for now?
  11. As a quick update, I now have 6 month pictures to compare. These are from the past week. Now these are from 6 months ago Does there look like there is any change? Or about the same?
  12. Alright, I will do my best to put it out of my mind for now then. At this point I guess there is nothing more I can do anyways but wait, so I will just try to keep enough of an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get worse and otherwise put my focus on getting my anxiety under comtrol.
  13. Sorry the bother people again, but I keep worrying about the fact I keep finding these thinner hairs among those I am shedding. I have read these could ne signs of early balding, but the dermatologist I saw said to not worry about it. Most of the hairs seem normal thickness, but it is still scaring me a lot. Is it normal for some hair strands to be thinner than others? Should I be concerned?
  14. So just a quick update. I went back to the dermatologist who I saw before who did a the scalp biopsy, who then answered some questions and did another quick visual examination. I got them to explain the biopsy results in more detail, which had apparently showed normal numbers of terminal hairs, however with abnormally high numbers of telogen hairs. This biopsy was from the crown, three months ago now. This result they said could be very early MPB (listed as the differential diagnosis), however they said it was far far far more likely to be Telogen Effluvium based on those results due to the lack of miniturized hairs in that spot. So they said they are pretty confident I have mild Telogen Effluvium, which has been likely perpetuating due to my stress over hair loss. So, at this point should I still try to find a hair loss doctor to do a minituriztion study? Or is it not worth it at this point.
