Eight years ago, while on holiday overseas, my hair came out in clumps. I remember standing in the hotel bathroom pulling my hair away from my head.
I was absolutely gutted and worried sick. As I looked at myself in the bathroom mirror, I tried to imagine me without any hair.
Why was this happening? I thought it was only men who went bald.
I stretched my memory back to an incident about two years earlier when my then hairdresser laughed at me, and said I had a bald spot above my left ear.
