Do you take supplements? Im sorry to hear of your hair loss. That would devastate me. Not sure if it'll help your situation but Biotin is great for strengthening hair and nails. I don't know if it promotes re-growth however.

Hi,Rachel. Yes, I did biotin and a host of other hair supplements. It just keeps falling. The hair loss alone makes me think about suicide, but then I realize that it is just hair, and I'm a coward I guess. I don't want to leave that way. The extreme exhaustion and pain makes me think about suicide, but then I think of my two grandchildren, and I want more time. I don't know how I can keep working,but right now I have no choice. I'm waiting for results of skin biopsy. I too have migraines. I was going to try Botox, but my insurance was going to have me pay 500 for the medicine, so that was out. Nobody has said how SFN affects life expectancy. I trust in God, but I have felt abandoned. I know He did not do this to me, but I feel lost. Hey Jim, if you're out there, you've mentioned your depression a lot. Let me know how you are feeling.
