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.
I started this blog in Feb of 2017.
It wasn’t until about 4 years ago that I found out what Trichotillomania was.
I went to Google because I couldn’t stop pulling my hair.
Low and behold, others did this too!
And it had a name!
I don’t know the reason that I have Trichotillomania but I’m sure a lot of insecurities are what’s driving it.
In addition to hair pulling, I have other BFRB’s too.
I suck my thumb, bite my nails, pick my skin and nose – I do a lot of things.. .
I keep this blog so that I can talk about Trich and how I’m overcoming it.
I will overcome it too because I know that God’s heart for me is to overcome it.
Once I began confessing by faith that I was going to overcome Trich, things began to look up!
Sometime in the middle of this year, I purchased habit detecting bracelets and they have totally helped me a lot!!
With the bracelets I have been made fully aware of my hair pulling which allows me to make a choice right there and then to stop.
I wasn’t even aware I was pulling my hair and that was a huge part of the issue for me.
Once I found the bracelets, I was able to start actively doing things to counteract my Trich.
I created a therapy journal to track my trich patterns and that’s allowed me to really pin point areas of weakness.
Since being able to pinpoint areas of weakness, I’ve also been able to counteract most of them.
Anyway, that’s a bit about me and my journey to overcoming Trich.
I’ll be updating as I go… thanks for your support!
