I already mentioned before that I suffered from a hormonal imbalance and PCOS that made me get insane acne. But, honestly, it was so much worse than that.I lost a lot of hair. I got alopecia that I didn’t get treated right away because of the quarantine. The bald spots just kept getting bigger until it became like this in the video.
I was depressed, I was anxious, and I was balding. I’d be sad then more hair would fall off, then I’d get sadder. It was a bad cycle hahaha! June ‘till December 2020 really wasn’t a good time mentally, and I just want to say – especially for those who are going through something similar – that things will be ok.
My hormones and I have been getting along a lot better now, and there’s been hair growing there already. It’s not much, but at least they’re coming back a little. FYI, this video was taken at its worst hehe because I knew at the time that I’ll be stronger one day. Strong enough to post this as a “before” video.
Hugs to everyone who might need it today! I’m here for you!
