    My hair/ depression

    Loss

    The loss of my hair the fact none of my friends even the ones who arn't at college don't visit I've only left my house for treatment and I have had little to no human interation besides my parents and just generally being stuck in my house is making me seriously depressed. I got a note from my college today inviting my parents to parents weekend but I'm not there and it will be a long time before I can and I hate that this happened just when my life was getting started now the rest of my life will be full of fear that this XXX thing will come back not to mention I have basically lost a year of my life because I can't do anything right now it royally sucks :(
