sir/madam , i am sure you must be under a lot of stress, any way the problem of hair loss or you is multiple. from your complaint it seems you must be in middle age group.
It also seems that you have a problem of insecurity, along with lack of proper support from your family members, It is important for me to know your gender which may have some other questions to be answered,
Coming to thinning of of hair the most probabale reason here is the use of divaloproex, which has 5-20% of hair thinning as a side effect, but the continuation of medicine is important. further evaluation of hair can be done by anlysis of your haemoglobin, and thyroid hormones
