Hi everyone, I'm new here.
I've been diagnosed with lupus for 8 years. I'm 23 years old. The first symptom that was found was hairloss. First I felt my head so itchy and I went to a doctor and the doctor said that it was fungi on my scalp. They gave me medication but I still got hair loss. On the contrary, the medication made me worse because my body kind of rejected the medicine and it made me had high temperature and headache. It happens a lot of time. I still got a lot of hairloss.. It has been almost a year until they found out my real disease.
After they found my disease my hair grew back. I felt better and I never felt sick anymore. The medication really worked for me. Then about
2 years later I didn't really know why, my hair started to fall again. In my case, my disease never attacked "important" of my body. In fact, I don't know the difference between sick or not. The only problem I had for this disease is hairloss. I guess I can be considered as lucky :)
But, although I'm so grateful this disease doesn't really harm me in a hard way, I still feel frustated because of hairloss. It happens on and off. Like 1 years I'm okay, then it started to fall again for 1 years. Then I found out that maybe when I'm stressing out it caused my hairloss, no matter what medication I take. So, it is very frustated for me because once I got hairloss I always felt afraid because my hair is going thinner. I knew I shouldn't be stressed out and have positive mind about
it. But it's so hard to do than to say. I always scared when I combed my hair.
Does anyone have the same experience like me? I would like to know if there's a way to handle it.
