Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
I just joined this site in an effort to connect to other people who have trichotillomania like myself. I've had this condition since I was 12 years old, and now I'm 32, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I realized there was a name for the condition. Only in this past year have I come to find that there is also a large community of people out there too!
I've had my ups and downs in the past 20 years, have always wanted to quit, but my willpower is admittedly very low. This is probably because I unfortunately get a considerable amount of satisfaction from my trich activities. I feel like I've tried so many different things to get myself to stop, but in the end, because of the pleasure I get out of my hair, I have never been successful quitting for long.
Anyone in this same boat? Suggestions?
