Hey ya, I'm 18 and have suffered trich for about 5 years now. It started at 13 when i first started pulling my lashes out, I'd just started highschool and I didn't cope too well with the change of my mum going back to full-time work, I pulled my lashes as a release and never realised what I was doing till they were gone. Took me a year to grow them back, then my life took a turn 9read my journal if you like) and I started ripping my hair out, three years on I'm still not coping and have heaps of bald spots, but i'm slowly realising trich is part of who I am and one day when I am fully over my experiences, I will stop

This looks like the group I need to be a part of. I am committed to stopping. My thanks to Crzychick (sorry if I got it wrong, I don't want to navigate away from this page) for the support and strength. The article on hair regrowth has me trembling in my boots, and more determined than ever. As an introduction to myself, I have pasted my first journal entry here:I have pulled since I was 9...
I was wondering, does anybody else frequently get sore/sensitive spots on their scalp, but nothing is there? These spots basically tell me where to pull from and I will always get a hair with a big root from these spots (which for some reason is my goal). Does anyone have any explanations for this??
