    This is what I usually listen to when I'm really bummed out:



    It might help you as well. If you read through the comments in the video, you'll see some powerful statements.

    Why do you think it is bad to be balding or bald? Most of my friends could care less if a guy is hair challenged, in a way it is more attractive. I have a friend that told her children that Dwayne Johnson could do whatever he wanted to her at a picnic two months ago, they are all adults btw, her husband was like, Yeah, can’t deny that. Don’t do the combover, it’s a bit creepy, but no, not a big deal for women. It is okay that you are men, it is why we like you after all.

    @ThacoBell , I don't know if it's a consolation, but people who have high levels of testosterone tend to go bald earlier than others :wink: .

    That said, I think a shaved head (not to the bare skin, but really short) looks good on guys with a receding hairline. Certainly better than letting it grow and combing it over the bald patches! However, if your wife prefers you with hair, you'll either have to convince her or learn to live with it.

    To shave your hair also has huge advantages when in lockdown. Imagine how people with fancy, carefully styled hair look after a few weeks! Unless they wear it long.

    Edit: Kudos to @_Nightfall_ for the expression "hair challenged". Love it.

    Being bald doesn't bother me, I always figured I'd either look like Santa Claus or Master Roshi when I got old anyway. Its the bald spots that get to me. Lucky for me, I was able to find a nice hat yesterday super on sale from a place I realistically have no hope of ever affording normally :D

    Nice hats over a shaved hat is the way to go to look cool! (At least, that's the way I like to look. The advantage being that with electric clippers and a mirror, you never need to pay for the hairdresser. Who, buy the way, despite the name 'dresser' doesn't ADD anything to your hair, but just SUBSTRACTS hair from your head, by means of scissors).

    Welp, it finally happened. My hair has been thinning slowly over the last 8 years, but I now have 2 visible bald spots, and they stand out even more because the rest of my hair is so thick. I don't mind the idea of being bald, but I really hate bald spots.

    You should do something fun with it while you can. I had long hair most of my life, but when I started really losing it I ran around with a blue mohawk for a year before finally shaving it all off.

    So we're finally coming to a point where we're probably going to have to kick out a player from our Vampire: The Masquerade game. Since he joined, everyone's been having noticeably less fun and we spend more than half of each a session arguing with him. Whether it's rules lawyering or the group telling him what he wants to do is stupid to him not liking when the world reacts to his actions and he's punished for them. I don't like that I have to do this, but there's 4 other players experiences to consider here and I know they're all getting pissed off with him. He also does not seem to want to actually play a personality, just destroy shit.

    ??? mlnvese said his greatest fears was to HAVE one of all diseases that affect memory, if I'm reading it right. So how am I to read what you fear to BE ??? And what that BE means to the hermeneutics of mlnvese's HAVE ???

    Sorry, read it the wrong way. I thought the 'them' refered to a person with dementia, not the disease itself. So my post is saying I fear being a person with the disease. Basically I agree with mlnevese. Perils of the written word...

    I saw my wife's grandmother disintegrate slowly. First, she forgot trivial things, then she started to forget things in reversed order, newest events went first. One day she didn't remember her granddaughter was married and didn't recognize me anymore, then she forgot she had a granddaughter.

    So no, the person that eventually died was not her any longer she had died a long time before her body did and we all suffered for her because the self-sufficient old woman we had all known was no longer there.

    I'm sorry to hear you've had such a bad dad. Feels strange to say condolences after such a story, as you surely have very mixed feelings about such a departure. Do you feel grief still or just angriness, like the last part of your name, or something else?

    A lot of mixed emotions. Anger, grief and in some ways relief he's not out there scamming people with his fake ass company investment scams. He was my Dad, and I had a shitty drunk ass crazy Mom that killed herself when I was 16, so I really needed him to be the good parent, which is why it took me so long to see he was such a piece of shit. Worst part is coming to realize how much shit she was right about when I got older.

    About a week ago my uncle called to tell me my old man had died. I hadn't spoken to him in years and apparently he was half the country away when he died of a stroke. In all honesty, he was a failed scam artist that was brainwashed by fox news and Rush Limbaugh. He probably had to move somewhere else just due to the fact that everyone in the region knew he was a scammer and he couldn't keep it up here. It doesn't even make any sense for him to be so right wing, since he was Chinese Canadian and broke. But he liked to pretend he was rich and felt entitled to anything and lived up to his ears in debt his whole life. I don't think he ever did an honest days work in his whole life and had ripped off most of my extended family. I think it was when he stole my cousin's credit card and rang up like $20-30 grand in charges that I finally accepted what a piece of shit he was. He couldn't even be assed to have my sister or I listed as next of kin or emergency contacts, so I had to basically find out through third hand information that he died. I had to talk to the county coroner today, at least a county cremation shouldn't cost much and is probably more than the bastard deserved. People wonder how I could just cut my dad out of my life and I ask them "Your parents were probably hard working honest people, right? Well, mine weren't." I remember from when I was 14-16 working at McDonalds in the '90s, and he said if I gave him money he'd match it for a car when I turned 16, welp, the money just disappeared. He liked to brag how he made a million dollars when he was in his early 20s, which was bullshit, his old man bought him that house, then he sold it to fuck around in Mexico in the '70s. He had so many advantages in life that he never extended to me. He pretty much epitomizes everything wrong with the boomer generation. The Trump administration has been really hard for me, since he acts so much like my old man, entitled to everything and everything is someone else's fault.

    Well, you can pick your friends but you can't pick your family. Sorry yours was such a pill. Kudos for rising above though! 🍻

    Sorry, just been wanting to use my uncle’s quote since you posted this;
    You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you mustn’t be picking your friend’s nose. Frivolous I know, just can’t hear, “you can pick your friends” without thinking of it.

    Whatever you need to do to recover and heal, @_Nightfall_. Just now that we'll be here whenever you want to visit. I hope that you're finding support IRL.

    You're one of the good ones. I know I've mentioned this before, but you changed my life.
