hi everyone who reads this, my name is shaunna. i have been pulling for about five years. i have no idea how i even started pulling or even know why. i dont even remember the last time i had a full set of hair. i have tried absolutely everything imaginable. i tried hypnotherapy, medication, making bracelets, painting/drawing, playing with playdoh, taping my fingers together, wearing a bandana, shaving my head, etc. when i go out with friends, go to school or work, i wear my wig that i bought. we (me and my parents) thought maybe buying a wig and seeing what i look like with a full set of hair again, maybe it will trigger something and make me not wanna pull. that was sadly mistaken. the hair on my wig on the side of them are pretty much ruined. usually when im around my friends doing something i dont pull my hair, but when im at home, or at work, or even at school, i catch myself pulling. i pull when i wake up, i pull before i go to bed. its so embarrassing to look over the side of my bed and see a huge clump of hair every night. im on the edge of just giving up, but theres that little voice inside thats telling me not to, and so i wont. maybe talking to others that have trich will understand what im going through. i would really appreciate it. thank you for reading and listening to my story.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
