As it's no secret I was a Trichotillomaniac for 27 years (until I shaved my head in Nov. 2009 ) which means I pulled out my hair one strand at a time and ate the roots. Trich falls into what's called "BFRB" Body Focused repetitive Behavior. Tomorrow Oct. 7th ends the #bfrbweek which helps bring awareness to this condition that also includes skin picking "Dermatillomania.
The #BFRB community around the world is making a huge effort as well as our beloved & hard working "Trichotillomania Learning Center" in California to bring world wide awareness.
I invite everyone to log onto www.trich.org to learn more about what 1 out of 50 people suffer from.
I have been very vocal about my hair pulling through out my life and granted any interview regarding the topic as well as taken advantage of any platform that puts me in the public eye to bring awareness and hopefully reach out to someone in need of help.
Today, thanks to social media and the internet spreading the word is much easier, nonetheless it's still a lonely and painful condition for people who suffer from BFRB.
If you or someone you know is suffering from Trichotillomania or Dermatillomania please share this information. I am available 24/7 to anyone who needs support! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bellow is an interview about me posted in the www.trich.org blog this past week plus a link to the highlights
