Thank you for this post, Summerstorm! I really look forward to reading all the replies.
My hair has been falling out HORRIBLY for the past few years and it's so bad now that I actually have wigs. I have high hopes that once I've recovered from surgery and can eat something and get off these steroids that I might get my hair back...that is priceless.
