I have dealt with Trichotillomania for very 20 years, I can’t remember a life without a compulsion to pull my hair. I’ve tried many methods to battle those pesky urges to pull and nothing has stuck so far. I have found as a age I don’t tend to pull as much and can recognize what I am doing and correct myself sooner. My husband is probably my biggest supporter, he understands that calling me out just increases my feelings of shame and just makes me feel super negative about my BFRB and my progress. Instead he will hold the hand that is not actively pulling and just start talking to me about everything and anything! Positive thoughts and celebrate even the smallest victory!
