Not a very positive thought I am afraid, but this is where I am. Panicked, so sick of it, despaired and want to give up! I thought I was getting so much better too. These past few days I thought I had this thing licked. I was sure my problem - hair loss- was TMS and that I was on my way to healing and getting better. The Dr said its stress related after all which says to me a mind induced problem, a mind induced cure. Phew. I can beat this I thought. Finally. Today, not so much. I have every doubt it that I will be able to get better anytime soon. I am pretty sure it's TMS, but I don't believe I am going to getting better. I feel powerless over what is happening with my body and symptoms and so scared and panicked that its gonna keep on going on going until I am a frightful looking wreck and all of my hair falls out. Not only had I felt better about the whole thing earlier this week, but I started to look better too. Even though my hair was thinner these past few weeks, it looked much better. But today and yesterday it has just gotten so much thinner- soooo much thinner- I am in a total panic, instead of getting better its getting worse. I feel worse because my symptoms are worse. Just as I started to finally feel better my symptoms got worse! That tells me it's not working and it's not going to work, using these TMS ideas for my healing. I am doing everything I can, but nothing seems to work. I know the stress of my financial and life situation is also at an all time high. I have no money for health insurance or rent both due soon- and no quick job coming anytime soon. That is about as bad as it has ever been and losing my hair on top of it makes my whole life miserable. I feel like giving up. I am enjoying all of your support and comments, it helps so much! I read them often and god knows I need thoughts other than my own to help me through this. Your support is a small ray of hope in a very dark and scary place.
