Anyone else losing their hair?
I haven't posted for quite awhile -- which certainly doesn't mean I have been spared the wonderful symptoms of perimenopause. They're all still here!!! I've been on the boards reading everyone else's posts for support, I just haven't had anything new to add. Until now. Lately I've been noticing a lot -- and I mean A LOT -- more hair in the drain after I shower. At first I just sort of ignored it but it continues pretty much daily and, just like everything else new and weird that happens to me these days, I'm wondering if it is yet another symptom of perimenopause. So is anyone else out there experiencing this? And, if so, is there anything to stop it? It's not like I have extremely thick, lush hair to begin with. I'd like to keep what I have! Granted, in the grand scheme of things, this is minor compared to the awful anxiety, bloating, crazy periods, etc. that peri brings on but jeez! Do I have to slowly go bald, too?! It's just bringing back to the surface my hatred of this whole phase of my life. I know it's just hair but it's MY hair and I don't want it to be thinner -- or worse!! Help anyone? Thanks! Diane
