I am a part of a Rheumy group on facebook, and just found out that the med I will most likely be put on makes your hair fall out! MTX, can't spell it, so i'll use the abbreviation.

My doc is a jerk and if he say's that's what he's giving me, either I can take it or leave. How do I get over this fear? how? I don't know if I can. I already have low self esteem. I can't deal with it getting any worse. I'm just sad :(
