happy freaking halloween,

My pulling has becoming a lot better.  I dont know what it is.  If its just HAVING this tumblr account, or its reading more stuff about trich and realizing more and more what i’m doing to myself.. I dont know.  But i’ve been doing so much better! only 5 hairs a day or so, and a few days ago I only did 2! which is a big deal for me even though i realized I have it a lot better than a lot of people.  Hope to keep it up!

 Anyways I guess I should say something about halloween. … its halloween!  I had a great halloween weekend, dressed up extremly badass and partied very hard.  So now coming to school and seeing everyone dressed up.. i could say I was pretty halloweened out.  I told my mother i wanted to go trick or treating this year.  She laughed in my face.  Thanks Mom.  since i’m “too old” to trick or treat I wanted to watch a few scary movies with my boyfriend..but she seemed to be against that idea because i came home today after 3rd block not feeling well.. and doesnt want me to go out.  As much as I want to say horrible things about her, i won’t because i know it’ll heal over and I’ll get over it.  SO! I hope you guys have a great halloween and thank you all for being so supportive <3 much much love

I have decided to dedicate my tumblr my trichotillomania.

I found as much as i love these pictures, my trich seems more important, and i can find more help and realization about what I do. 

As I sit here listening to the Beatles,

Hello. I’m a 16 year old girl living in vancouver canada and i suffer from a disease called trichotillomania. (also known as trich, or sounds like trick)  I have been dealing with it for 6 years now and it’s something I have to cope and deal with everyday. For those of who don’t know what it is, it’s an Obessive  Compulsive Disorder (OCD) for people who pull our their hair.  Now I have to say I’m not the worst case.  I know a lot of people (online) who are now bald or have very severe bald patches.  Some people don’t have eyelashes, or eyebrows..but me? My hair is just really thin.  I’m scarce with my eyebrows and I hate myself with each hair I pull out.  While I was reading yesterday, it got really bad where i pulled my eyebrows out so much..I looked in the mirror with tears.  Fuck. I was doing so well.. they were almost back to normal..I have come to tumblr in look of help.  In look of support.  In look for tips..someone to talk to.  Because I like knowning that even though I’m over here, they’re are people over there dealing with the same troubles I have everyday.
