victim of trich
hi everyone. i'm really glad i joined this because it's comforting to know that there are so many other people going through the same thing, and hopefully we can all overcome this. so i started pulling out my hair in the bang area when i was in 5th grade. i didn't realize i was doing it at first until i started to notice bald spots on the top of my head. the pulling continued and i had more noticeable bald spots and very short hair along my hairline. people would stare and it made me feel extremely insecure. luckily i figured out ways to style my hair to hide it as best i could. when it grew a little longer i would do a "french twist" along my hairline and pin it to the side. i did this every day to cover up the short hair. eventually i got an extension to make the hair look longer. it was good while it lasted and it did make my hair inside the braid (she braided some of the hair under the extension) grow a lot. i got the extension out a little over a year ago. the hair that was in the braid grew and is now down to my chin, but the hair that wasn't in the braid is still pretty short and barely reaches my eyebrows. all of my hair in front is pretty much all different lengths and just looks very awkward. it's my #1 insecurity. i still have not stopped pulling. i never completely stopped and i don't know how i can. i pull when i'm stressed or bored or pretty much just all the time. all i want is long beautiful hair. i am now a junior in high school and this has been a struggle for me for 6 years. it's so hard being around girls everyday with gorgeous hair knowing that i have this. i also love to do hair ironically, which makes it even harder. i really hope i can overcome this. thank you to everyone to read this❤️
I started pulling my hair (or I finally realized I was pulling my hair) when I was 17. I was in an EMT school and I read about Trich in a book. I realized, holy shit, that's what I do every single day! I tried to talk to my dad about it and he freaked out on me. Told me no one in our family was crazy and I needed to pull myself together. I never mentioned it again. The thing is, I enjoy pulling....
I'm looking for someone who can talk and listen. Someone who I can text or call when I wanna pull. Someone I can trust with my secrets. Someone who can help me out. Dm me your snapchat or something, please. I just need someone right now
