Hair Loss

Happy new year; here's your hairball...

I was enjoying a nice relaxing night out to myself while my wife watched the kids on Sunday evening. I thought I would the evening off with a nice relaxing hair cut and the hot towel treatment at Sports Clips while taking in some of the Jets game.

All thoughts of being able to relax went right out the window when the stylist asked me; "Do you have some scars on the back of your head or is this alopecia areata?"

Apparently, the latest development in my health nightmare is that the hair on my head is start to fall out in patches; I don't know all the details yet, but it sounds like this is related to my diabetes and thyroid issues. The doctor's office was closed Monday due to the holiday, but I'll be setting up an appointment to see the specialist today. If anyone is listening in, wish me luck.
