I am losing my hair at 45. I used to have thick thick hair that I could not clip it all. Now my hairclips hold all my hair and some slide down and off. On the outside it is not too obvious....but if I pull up sections there are hairless areas maybe dime size. And if I clip my hair back you can see my scalp through my hair. My sister who is 46 lost all of her hair to Alopecia 4-5 years ago. I guess I am on my way slowly but surely. She does not suffer from Fibro or CFS. She just has no hair. I am finding this rather hard to deal with since my hair has always been long, (down to my butt and I am 5'11)so it is a large part of my identity. How much more of ME is this disease going to take? I am just a shell of my former self who spends at least 20 hours a day in bed. Is it only me????
