Hair balls?
Post: 

I’ve suffered with trich for 4 years now and have been pulling the hair on my head to the point of haveing bald patches. I’m now very worried about the chance of getting a hair ball in my stomach. Does anyone know what the symptoms of a hair ball is? How commen are hair balls in people who have trich? When you eat your hair how does it exit your body? Can you live with a hair ball and never know it? Will it go away in this own? Please anyone who can help I would appreciate it.

Hey there, I am literally looking for all of the same questions. I too am scared like you, There is some stuff I have read about us and the possibility of hair balls and the dangers they can cause. Get back to me as soon as possible, don't feel embarrassed I feel the exact same way you do. I would very much enjoy talking to someone who is going through this too.

Hi sorry for the late response, I would really enjoy talking to someone going through the same thing too. Let me know if there’s a way we can talk like email or some other form of texting.
