My response

You don't have to be so down and out about it - you're a good looking guy and have a family, you could be much worse off!

In terms of treatment, all I can say is educate yourself. It's empowering.

You won't get ripped off, and in the case of prioritizing your money...I respect that you're putting your family first, but you can reduce your expenses if you know how. Again, it's about educating yourself.

The drug Propecia is available in a generic form called Proscar. It's identical, except that instead of a 1mg dose it comes in a 5mg dose. Just cut it into quarters (it won't be exact, but it doesn't need to be) and you're set - instead of spending $70AUD a month on 30 tablets, you can spend $90 on 30 tablets that will last you FOUR months! (30 / 4 pieces = 120 tablets).

Think about it, $90AUD for 4 months isn't that bad! Surely you can afford it.

Anyway good luck with it all, and...cheer up!
