Greetings everyone, I debated on posting this, but I have decided to see if I can get some solace in knowing there are others out there like me. Â As the topic title says, I am going bald and I am in college. Â I know this may seem silly to some, but I sometimes find myself quite self conscious of this, and I was wondering if there were others experiencing the same thing. Â I guess the part that is frustrating is being so young and seeing everyone else around you with a full head of hair. Â If I was 30 and was beginning to go bald, it wouldn't be as distressing. Â But being 23 and going bald can make for a distressing situation, especially when you are very self concious about your looks (as I am). Â I have not ever seriously considered any hair transplants, as I just don't know how safe those procedures are. Â I guess the purpose of this post is to feel comfort in knowing that there are others out there who are also experiencing this. Â It often seems as if I am the only guy on campus going bald (at least among the students), and it would be helpful to know there are others out there. Â Do you have trouble coming to terms with it? Â Can you somehow embrace your baldness? Â Any comments and/or suggestions are more then appreciated. Thanks.
