Is it because I am the mother of 7 kids? Is it because 4 of those are teenagers? Whatever the cause, I am loosing a LOT of hair! The other night I combed and got about 40. Last night I showered, leaving a large amount in the drain. Then when I combed, I got another 90 hairs. I can't help but count them. I keep telling myself that it looks worse than it is; and then I count to prove it. Sadly, it is as bad as it looks. I am fearful that something is wrong because I have other symptoms that point to hormonal, thyroid or some other systemic problem. Blah!
Update June, 2006: I am happy to report that the shedding did finally slow down and I am not bald!
