Hello, I’m a girl in my mid-twenties,
I wanted to hear some advice from people who are older than me so I’m writing this ㅠㅠ
I started to lose hair during middle school. As a high schooler, I just felt that my amount of hair has become a bit less but that’s it. I didn’t know that it was hair loss.
And so, I went to university and now, I’m entering the job market and suddenly my hair loss has become a lot worse.
I’ll tell you how bad my hair loss is
Right now, the condition of my hair loss is exactly that of image I-4. It’s looking pretty bad.
I got on medication and I went to the hospital to treat my hair loss but whenever it starts to get better, I suddenly start to lose hair again.
If I don’t put on hair powder or a wig, I absolutely cannot go out. Even at home, if there’s a family member or anyone home, I have to put on hair powder.
But come to think of it, I think that my scalp has degenerated since it cannot breatheㅠㅠ right now, when I don’t use hair powder, I just wear a light wig.
Also, I have a boyfriend but we haven’t been dating for long.
I tried to hide it from him but since I see my boyfriend often, he’s now aware of my hair condition.
If we are at home together, I always have a hood or cap on. And if not, I turn off the lights.
I feel that my boyfriend is in a tight position, but he never said anything in front of me. But he told me that he understands me and he asked me if I couldn’t keep the lights on.
No matter what, I cannot let him see my hair… I feel like he will grow to hate me and break up with me..
Back then, a lot of people called me pretty so I had a lot of confidence.
But I now developed some kind of social phobia. Every time I go out, I can’t look at people in their eyes.
I’m scared that people would see my hair and lough or whisper among them.. I know that they won’t do those of kinds but I can’t bring myself to believe that.
After my hair loss became worse, my confidence decreased a lot. I almost don’t meet any guys anymore.
I think to myself “what kind of guys would even like someone like me..”
But even so, I have a boyfriend now and he always tells me how he loves me and adores me. He doesn’t know my hair loss situation in detail but he has a general idea of it and he said that he understands me.
But I’m still scared that I might get hurt…
Please give me some advice ㅠㅠ
