new here, and just wanted to say hi. My daughter was recently diagnosed with trich. Trying to be supportive as possible but I'll admit it there are times when it's hard. She has had trich now for 2 years. We had been told it was alopecia only to find out later she admitted pulling her own hair out. This is my first time at an on line support group, I look forward to chatting with many of you!

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??
