Truth. It's happened to me. Last year I was losing hair because of a combination of work and personal related stress .related stress. But you lose hair all over your head, there isn't pattern baldness at all... everything just thins out. At least this is what happens with me.... the good news is when the stress goes away, the hair comes back.Stress in heavy combat leads to gray hear, literally. Ask any war zone vet who was in a hot situation and managed to survive.
