hi, I’m 17 years old and I have trichotillomania. This is my first support group chat ever. I started pulling about 2 years ago and once I started I couldn’t stop. I have multiple huge bald spots around my head and piles of hair that I picked out from my scalp but I save them. My family and friends keep telling me to stop because my bald spots are visible but they do not understand that I literally can’t stop. I want to stop though, I do not enjoy hating the way I look because I have bald spots. I don’t know what to do anymore it’s so bad.

If anyone has suggestions please reply and I really would love to talk to anyone going through the same thing as me so we could help eachother. Wow Itfelt so good to get this out, I’ve never fully said all of this and now I’m telling this to thousands of people lol
