I live with a condition called trichotillomania. For anyone who does not know what that is, trichotillomania is a condition where the person feels compelled to pull their hair out and an impulse-control disorder; a pyschological mental health condition where the person is unable to stop themselves from carrying out a particular action. In my case, it is pulling my hair. I have lived with this since secondary school and every single day is a fight to try not to pull my hair.
There is a reason why I am creating this blog. This blog will document my every day struggles, thoughts with trich and what I experience every day. The ultimate aim with this blog, is to create more awareness of trichollomania and hopefully, for people to have a better understanding of what people with trich go through.
As for who I am, for now I will say I am young adult aged between 16-25 living in London in the United Kingdom.
