Well I had my dermatologist appointment yesterday about my hair. He says it is telogen effluvium (could be caused by thyroid but most likely stress). I’m going to see endocrinologist next even though my thyroid numbers are “normal” in range. He did order some more bloodwork too. He said my saving grace is how thick my hair must have been because even he said most people would never think I had thin hair. But he did confirm half of it is gone (it is just thinned throughout). So, to me, when I feel my scalp of feels bald and makes me cringe and want to cry but I know others don’t see it that way at all. But at least I know I’m not going crazy 😂. He says the nutrafol And doterra vitamins I’m on and other supplements (collagen, etc) are all good so I’m already doing everything I can in that regard. He did say most times the hair will regrow and it shouldn’t get much thinner but I am just scared it will. That’s what worries me is if it keeps getting thinner. It started two years ago and i was not stressed at all then but did take 2-3 months of levothyroxin with my armour and I blame that as that’s when I started noticing it really coming out. But now the stresses of 2019 and the multiple family deaths we had last year have put me under a lot of stress. Normally I don’t feel too stressed daily but when I think of my nephew I just want to cry. So I don’t know. Not sure how to help that. Anyways, that’s my update with that. Hope y’all are doing well!

    Slimmerjesse suggested something I was going to. It helps.

    As for grieving, it is VERY tough. IT really does affect body and mind. Hugs and prayers. Hope things are on the healing path for you now.

    You might want to research the effects of Rosemary essential oil; I've had good results with small areas of hair loss and that is one of its listed benefits.
