Trichotillomania

What Trichotillomania Feels Like

March 12, 2019

Hi all!

I know it’s been a while, I’ve been a bit unmotivated to write but I’m feeling better now. I thought I’d share a short film that my friend Issy made about an unspoken issue – my trichotillomania.

I am so proud of how it all came together – she did a great job! I’m also immensely happy that I was given this opportunity to speak about my experiences with trich, and that I was able to do it with confidence.

One thing I’m not a fan of is the “related videos” all being clickbait for creepy health horror stories. I want people to see that I’m normal, and my trichotillomania is just something that I have to deal with in my day to day life.

If you want to know more about my trichotillomania, click here to read my original post about it. I mentioned my embroidery in the video – this is something that I will be posting about soon, so watch this space!
