My cancer treatments (chemo and radiation) have ended almost five years ago. I told all treatment providers my hair loss still persists. I am told repeatedly that it is not related to any of my medications are previous treatments. I am now finding out that I do have alopecia. In addition I have weight gain among other issues. My depression has deepened. I am devastated that I am even more disfigured due to the hair loss. I feel lied to. I feel so discounted and as though I am making a big deal out of nothing. I am a person who has autism and this combined with my depression seem to give the impression I "am feeling wrong and/or thinking incorrectly. I want to know how others have diminished the anger and sadness of hair loss, keloids, weight gain or any other changes in their physical appearance.
