feeling the hair loss...

It's pretty common knowledge that one side-effect from pregnancy is hair loss and, man, as soon as I popped that baby out {why is that a "thing"? what baby just pops out?} my hair went to shit. I've always had thin hair. It's always been lovely and shiny/healthy and I've never had to fork out the big bucks to make my hair manageable/soft/smooth/etc but thin hair has its drawbacks. I rarely get that lovely hair commercial bounce and sometimes I'd love some Blake Lively lush.

Anyway... hair loss after giving birth sucks but it's nothing compared to what's happening now. My hair is quite literally falling out all over the place. I touch my hair and bunches of hairs fall into my hands. I wash my hair a few times a week. I brush it {okay, I brush it sometimes}. I care for it. But my hair is falling out in horrid clumps all over my house and clothes. I'm sweeping my bathroom floor multiple times a week. The amount of hair that falls out during a shower won't even fit down the drain. When I touch my head I can feel the places in which the hair is no longer. What is happening?

This new development seems to coincide with starting my new crazy pills earlier this year. Sure it helps the anxiety/depression/ptsd/ocd and I rarely want to die but my hair... everywhere. I know hair loss and stress are correlated but, ugh, I'm crazy. I can't help it!

So what's a girl to do? Because I can't do bald.

Any tips? Suggestions? Love?

Am currently using a strengthening shampoo and conditioner which helps a tad-ish. Vitamins? Help!
