I'm wearing my "I am more than my hair" shirt from @lucyh.arper's shop today :) Since this week is Trichotillomania Awareness Week, today's support activity is to write a post educating the public about what it is. Trichotillomania is not just a bad habit. It is a non curable mental illness on the spectrum of OCD. People with trich have an irresistible urge to pull out hair from any part of their head, face, or body leading to noticeable hair loss, social withdrawal, and anxiety. Although most people have never heard of it (due to how many people keep it at secret because of embarrassment), it is estimated that at least 2 in 50 people have Trichotillomania. This week is about giving those people our support and spreading awareness to an issue that is too often laughed at and dismissed. It's sad that I seem to know more about TTM than many of the doctors I've been to, if not most of them. Please make a post educating your friends and family and strangers about Trichotillomania!

This week Oct 1-7 is Trichotillomania and other BFRBs Awareness week. Please help me spread support and awareness of this disorder because you never know who might need it the most as they are illnesses of isolation. Oct 1- educate! Research trich then make a post on social media about what you learned. If you suffer or know someone who does, you can share your story too. Oct 2nd- don't make your usual efforts to hide the damage of your disorder. If you don't have it, go all natural anyway to show support in beauty without hiding. Oct 3rd- make a blue and green ribbon and wear it on something. write the name or title of someone you know who suffers with it and if you don't know anyone dedicate it to all who live in silence. Oct 4th- the trichotillomania learning center has helped thousands of us in our journey to feeling less alone in this disorder. go to trich.org and donate, share their Facebook page, like it, or simply let them know you appreciate their work! Oct 5th- decorate an item of your choice to wear that brings awareness to trichotillomania or other BFRBs and explain it to anyone who asks. Oct 6th- write one of the three of the following on your hand: Trichster (if you suffer from trich), TrichStar (if you're trying to stop or have stopped), and Trichotillomania Awareness if you are supporting those with it. Oct 7th- wear the support colors or trichotillomania, blue & green!! Please spread the word!! And do this!

trichotillomanialife : @liv7259 thank you!!! I have taken Prozac for over a year and it worked a little bit for the first month or so but it doesn't help at all anymore. But I am definently looking at a salon in my area.
trichotillomanialife : @trichy_person thank you so much! I will try!
trichy_person : ^~^
crystalkin83 : Hang in there!! Everything gets worse before it gets better! @liv7259 I sent you a request
kissing_razors65 : Oh baby doll, I'm so sorry. Just send me a DM anytime you wanna talk or get things off your mind. Keep staying strong and try your hardest to keep your hands busy doing anything but touching your hair. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
atrichsterproduction : I know this may seem like an extreme option, but shaving your head works. It was the only thing that worked for me.
atrichsterproduction : I shaved my head early June, and ever since I have been pull free on my head! Hang in there! I have been where you are right now and I know how bad it sucks
trichotillomanialife : Thank you guys! Im feeling a lot better now! @atrichsterproduction @kissing_razors65 @crystalkin83

I posted this in a fb #trichotillomania group and got a great response. I thought I'd share on ig. Even though it is a very personal/private and embarrassing illness I have suffered with for 20 years I found a way to lessen my shame and embarrassment and I feel I need to share this. I've had trich since I was 6 years old. The top of my head is my main pulling spot. I pull from everywhere but mainly the top. I've always been embarrassed but always been Extremely great at hiding it. My dad would try to make me laugh at the situation by calling me a wind-walker or saying I wear a combover, I would wear, and make sure I did not pull from the far left side of my side part.

lee_steel : I have grown up being a competative swimmer, luckily I would keep my swim cap on for meets or practices. Yet when it came time for recreational swimming I was always terrified and embarrassed. I remember once taking a tub of my mom's waterproof mascara and trying to color in my bald spot. Aside from my family and maybe a few friends know of my trich until about a year ago that I had this bad bald spot on the left (see photos) and myself being a heavily tattooed person and at the time, before being diagnosed with a chronic illness that has left me unable to work, working at a tattoo shop so being surrounded by many amazing artists decided, " hey! Why don't I just tattoo my spot?
lee_steel : So instead of seeing an "an ugly bald spot" and asking questions about that they see a beautiful tattoo and assume I have the spot because of that and just ask about the tattoo!?" Shockingly, and not many people believe me, this was THE easiest tattoo I have Ever gotten! I have tattoos pretty much everywhere and I was expecting this to be another terrible tattoo.. not one bit and I am a horrible tattoo client. I am a sissy. But this literally was so easy only thing was it was just loud! And it has worked how I though it would. All though I have trouble to stop pulling and this is all the regrowth I have in a year it's still better than the first picture. That first picture was all from me pulling , my artist shaved the back bit a little bit but hardly at all. You can tell where it was shaved on the back middle arrow and the rest was all pulled .
lee_steel : I am on cymbalta for depression and also fibromyalgia and I've noticed throughout the years when I am off of cymbalta I hardly pull at all. But when I am on cymbalta I end up like this. Sucks but I need my cymbalta. Sorry this was so long so I'll end it now. Keep your heads up. There's always a way. P.S. biggest Thank You to @brentonpottertattooer for doing the tattoo and being so awesome and professional about it and not to mention an awesome friend. I can't even express to you what this tattoo has done for me and my self-esteem. You're a hero homie. Love you❀

Okay so I feel like you all my story but not me and I want to know about you so here we go. My name is Lindsay and I am 16 years old. I am a born and raise New Yorker and I have a huge desire to travel away from the big city. I love to make art and if you have followed me long enough you might have been a part of my recent art project. I make art about myself in order to connect o people and have them feel a comfort about themselves that they can't reach. I play music as well as making art. I play ukulele, guitar, bass, and I sing but y'all probably know that part 😝 I am gay but I have yet to date a girl. You just kinda know though. I don't tell this story often because the reason why a lot of y'all follow me is because you can connect with me through my series of mental illnesses but I am more than that. Yes sure I have trichotillomania, ocd, depression, and anxiety but my mental illnesses do not define me. They shaped who I am today but they are not me. I want you guys to comment to tell me about yourselves. I don't want to just hear the mental illness side. I want to know the side that is you. I am not defined by my issues therefore I should not know you by your illness. I love you all πŸ’œ
