Balding and stuttering at 21

It's probably one of the worst combinations, honestly. Balding at 21 sucks as hell (i've been taking meds for around 6 months and nothing changed at all): it makes you look WAY older. Stuttering is often associated with weakness, so it adds up to the balding problem. At least I'm tall (6'2) and fit... nothing else tho.
i think a stutter is a recognised speech impediment/disability. if you think you have one, don't suffer alone when there is help + accomodations out there for you (eg when doing job interviews)

as far as losing your hair goes, 20s is where it starts for a surprising number of people (just look around). the best thing you can do is accept it internally - you'll feel a lot better about it. if the meds aren't working, don't keep paying for them i guess

this might sound like a shitpost idk but if the baldness is slightly patchy you can fill it with a (GOOD QUALITY!) eyebrow pencil/pen, some bald people (w/o eyebrows!) draw on eyebrows, and it's v realistic and looks like hair. i myself when i tie my hair in a high ponytail fill in the part near the hairline where it's thinner and it makes a lack of hair look a lot less noticeable, just my piece of advice 😄

For the speech aspect if you are in the UK then speech therapy is available with the doctors I think. Me and my brother both went when we were younger and my speech impediment is still there -like a bad lazy s lisp and a bit of a stutter- but it only comes out when I'm nervous or drunk because the therapy still sticks all these years later. Although I did go 13 years ago so I'm not sure if it's still widely available now but it's a good option if the speech impediment is causing a detriment to ur mental health
Hopefully this helps

Stuttering also due to nerves
