About the Author
Lesley here, I’m the author of this blog.
This blog came about because I wanted a place to talk about Trichotillomania – because there just isn’t a lot of places I can talk about it.
It wasn’t until about 4 years ago that I found out what Trichotillomania was.
I have been battling hair pulling my entire life, since I was a toddler, I just never knew that others were dealing with it too.
When I found out that my hair pulling had a name, I was actually relieved and I felt like I could finally start pursuing some answers and treatments.
I keep this blog so that I can talk about Trichotillomania and how I’m overcoming it.
I am here to encourage others because I know without a doubt that God wants His precious children healed and whole.
I’m a bible school student pursuing her associates degree in theology for the sole purpose of healing my heart and the heart of others.
Once I got a revelation of God’s grace and the finished work of Jesus Christ, I fell in love and that love is what has helped me overcome so many things in my life.
I was mutilating myself, using drugs, battling eating disorders and I contemplated suicide many times before I found the grace of God.
When I found out that I had something called “trichotillomania” – I was already established in His grace and love for me so I knew it didn’t stand a chance!
Once I started confessing that I would overcome by faith in His grace, I’ve seen a huge improvement!
- I found Keen bracelets which gave me awareness.
- I figured out my hair pulling triggers by keeping a therapy journal.
- I started a support community where the sole focus is encouragement in overcoming trichotillomania.
My condition doesn’t change my position as a child of the Most High God and it was in that revelation that I began to see real progress.
I hope you enjoy my blog!

I realize I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, but who wants to be? That sounds exhausting!
