i am 26 years old. approx. 1 year ago i was watching the news magazine show "Dateline". The program featured a segment on trichatillomania. I was amazed to learn that i was not the only one! I cried myself to sleep that night. It was not from pain or sorrow, but from the sheer relief that I was not alone! I am searching for penpals with this disorder. Feel free to e-mail me at tshump.uark.edu

Hi - I found this page while doing research for my daughter. She is 10 years old and I have just discovered she has Trich. I estimate this has been going on for the last year, but didn't notice until I started seeing bald spots. If any girls out there re looking for a pen-pal I think it would be great for my daughter, Christian to have a friend to talk to. See ya, Charlene

I'm an American and not ashamed of having Trich. There are WORSE things we could be doing to our bodies to handle stress...! I am also a teacher and have had several students(all girls) with Trich...I let them know I have the disorder,as well, and that verything is "O.K."! I wish I had known someone with Trich growing up...it would have made things a lot easier!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had this disorder for many years and I am now 24. My parents thought it was puberty. After a few years and many strands of hair later, they decided to send me to see a psychiatrist. She laughed me out of there and said I was a normal adolescent ith a bad habit that I would out grow eventually. Guess what....as you all may know I am still pulling hair out. Why? I know this can be overcome! But I don't even realize I am doing it half the time and it feels good?!?!? Why? I am so scared MY HAIR W N'T GROW BACK! I DON"T WANT TO BE BALD! Please help...someone.

Hello Trichsters - I am 38 years old and have been pulling my hair, lashes & brows since I was 11. My mom never knew anything @ first, but when she did said stop. We all know we can't. Now she knows how serious this problem is. I have been to doctors, been on all kinds f meds, etc. I was on Prozac for 13 years and it worked until it had the reverse action, (made my sickness worse). Then in March of 98' my doctor put me on Effexor and I was pull free for a year or so. Then something very bad happened to me in October o 99' and I started pulling so bad, I had to get a wig. First time I have ever had do wear one. Then about 2 months ago she started me on Paxil and Haldol (there is a longer name for that med, not sure how to spell it right now), but I have been pull fre about 98% of the time. Don't get me wrong I still pull but it may be one or two a day. Also, I no longer wear the wig. I have a full set of eyebrows and lashes also, where I had none @ all. Also, I have 2 sisters that do this also, and they do not ge help for it. I have tried with them, but they just laugh about it. Well, that is my "monster story". I wish all of you Love, Luck, and Happiness. GRACE :)

I did not realize that trichsters had their own day. That's so far out of the closet from where I started in the mid 60's. It's awesome to see the support out here now, and to know that you are not the only one. It has been so instrumental in my emotio al healing to free myself from the thought that "it's my fault". But, when you learn this from a tender age, you believe that it must be true. I am slowly believing that I am not to blame, and my pain is being released, as am I, from my prison of guilt nd silence. I must thank my husband for all of his loving support, as he is the first man I have ever had the courage to share this trich with. It gives me strength and hope to know there is so much support out there for all of us who fight the monster e ery day. Good luck to you all in your pf efforts!

Hello, I just found out that what I do has a name for it in Dec.1999 I have pulled on and off since I was 11 years old. I quit for 6 years between that time and now. I'm now 27 years old and pray daily that one day there can be a cure. I started pulling again after I had my first and only child. She will soon be 4 years. I hope that she never finds out about my illness. I would like some support if possible. Doctor gave me Zoloft, but I don't like the fact being on anti-depressants. It's good to know that ow I can research more of what I have and support others with the same problem in the future. Veronica 6/00

Hi..My name is Sue. Have had trich/ scalp only since I was 13. Had know clue why I started this "habit" and why I just could just not stop. My parents took me to several dermatologists, thinking my hair just "fell out." The third dermatologist put me n valium. It was about 1970 then, and valium was a popular sedative. Fortunately it worked very well, and I have been using the medication on and off to this day to control hair pulling. I'm now 45, pull occasionally...but except for a couple of thin ar as, I have a full head of hair. No wigs, scarves, elaborate covering up needed. In March I had "stumbled" across all these TTM sites on the Web! I was shocked that there were so many sites, and people afflicted! I knew I had "trichotillomania" but tho ght it was EXTREMELY rare. Thank goodness for the new found recognition of this disorder, and it may finally come out of the closet. For most TTM sufferer's we've been ashamed, depressed, and lack self esteem. To this day..I've been unable to stick up or myself, where repeatedly I've let other people take advantage of me. This just leads to repressed self anger, when truthfully, I find these people repulsive that they have no self conscience...and are overly "self centered." It's refreshing to know these sites exist and that I have several fellow TTM friends for moral support! Thank You Sue B.

Hello, I'm kind of scared. I have been a RN for 9 years and I have just realized that I have trichotillomania! I only pull a small section from my scalp every few months usually accompanied increased stress or distress. The section I pull from creates a bald spot about the size of a quarter in the center of my head so I haven't had to resort to changing my hairstyle or being noticed by others. Can anyone answer my questions: 1. Will this condition worsen to the point that I begin pulling out all my hair? 2. I fell so satisfied after pulling my hair that I'm not sure I want to stop, am I crazy? I would appreciate any responses. Thanks!!

Please e-mail my daughter Erin who is a trichster. She is 15 years old and was diagnosed about 6 months ago. I have sent her this web site link but I don't think she has looked at it. She would be surprised at how many people have the same disorder. God Bless All. OHIO

My daughter Erin is 15 and was diagnosed about 6 months ago. Please e-mail her to let her know she is not alone. I would like to share a poem she wrote for her English class yesterday. I'M STILL ME Some people are vain, and cause other pain. When it comes to hair, my head is bare, but as for what others think, I do not care. People don't know that I am sick, They laught at me and get me ticked, I want you to know I have a disease, If you are curious, ask me please. Making fun of a person isn't fair, I can't help that I have no hair. But your teasing is hard to bear, it makes me want to pull my hair.

It is about time we had a day to call our own. For me it isn't about celebrating trich, but about letting others who may suffer from this that know they are truly NOT alone. I have suffered from trich since I was 11 and I just can't seem to overcome it. I have overcome many, many things in my life but I have never had anything take such a dastardly hold of my life like trich has. I know in my heart that one day (soon I hope and pray) that I will overcome it, also. Ellen, what a great idea...a tricnic in Alabama. Call me and maybe we can plan one for the week of the Trich day. I am 42 and live in Sylvan Springs, Alabama. Anyone in Alabama please feel free to email me.

Hi, I'm 28 and I've been a sufferer of Trich for over 19 years - it's still the most difficult thing I've had to deal with. Trich has no boundaries for damaging self-esteem and quality of life. I would really like to contact someone in the area of Toronto Ontario Canada for discussions about the possible causes for this affliction. I hope everyone who has this makes contact with someone else - few people understand this it seems. Good luck with the quest for freedom from this awful disorder ! Please email if you are interested in making contact with me.

I only recently admitted this to myself a few weeks ago, after pulling for over 6 years, I always told myself it was a phase, or a "hobby" and that I could stop at anytime, well maybe I can but the first step to doing that is admitting it. I am struck mostly by the way everyones messages are vaguely similar, "its so good to know im not alone" "i never knew it had a name" this is such a "closet illness" that we rarely speak of it, I for one have never met or seen or even read about anyone wi h this untill I found it on the internet, I hope everyone finds the support and help they are searching for. good luck [lisa, 24 uk]

I've been a puller for 8 years. I am 30. But, I thought about it lately, that, my health could be a lot worse than this. I've been diagnosed with anxiety, stress, depression, etc. I've had suicidal thoughts, but thank God I have an understanding family, and a loving fiance. But, I see all the "handicapped" & ill people around me, especially, children, who don't have a chance to survive. I mean I would rather have THIS "condition", than to be in their shoes. All we have to do is just try harder, I know have to. I'm glad we have support sites, such as this, I don't feel left out. So hats off America!! Happy International TTM Day! (From Pitts., PA)

I started at the end of 3rd grade. And at 27 years old I am still pulling m eyebrows and eyelashes. I started last year in pulling my hair on the top of my head out. I can stop that but then if I get really stressed out I start up again. I feel better telling you all about my problem. Thank you for listening to me ramble on.

Hi! I have had trichotillomania since I was 10 and now am 25. I must say I feel fortunate that society has accepted me as normal. Most people don't know I have a problem; make-up works miracles. I want to know if there is any natural medications inste d of prescribed drugs to help with this disorder. I am a fighter and want to beat this with everything I got, but don't want prescribed drugs.

I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I was born in Toronto but my ethnic backround is Korean, I'm 22 years old and I've had TTM for about 13 years now. I wish I could leave a message saying I was cured but I'm not. I haven't given up though so for the p ople who have TTM, you shouldn't either because I know that you can stop and beat it. I hope I'll find a way to stop soon but it seems that there's not that many places to go for help in Canada as there is in the States. I'm glad to know that there are housands like me and that there is a way to stop this disorder.

I read your story and I am so sorry for the life that you had it must be awful to have such a hard time in life,,, I also have a big family 2 brothers and 6 sisters allthough I had a mother and a father too... my daughter is a puller I guess after reading your story I had to say is a puller even though she has not pulled in alongggggg time july of 98 to be exact, One thing she did was she took kava kava to take away the anxiety and stress in her life you may t y taking this if you ever feel stressed or anxious about anything. after reading your story I have to realixe that maybe she has the urge to do this and that maybe it is a struggle for her to stay pull free I am not sure but, I know that she is pull free now and I give credit to the kava kava she took it for almost 7 mo ths and was pf within weeks 2 to be exact. I only will use kava kava again if she needs it to get pull free again, (kava kava is a herb) anyways the reason I say this is because I think will power and nothing is best but, I will use kava kava for her again as I dont ever want her to go threw life without hair as I will always love her as her mother but, I want her to love her self to this s most important. and I think with out the hair she has veryyyyyy low self esteem and if the kava kava gives her the power to take away the stress and the anxiety than I say go for it till it is a better time for you. well, you made a wonderful web page and If I could )))))****HUG YOU*********((((((((((( I would you should be a kid still and seems like you have had a hard life. I do want you to know that I dont think that all trich is caused from a hard life cause my daughter actually has a very easy life, but I do think it is caused from stress and anxiety and also from strep, ear infections as a kid, and anything that has to do with ears, nose or throat. my duaghter had a surgrey before her trich started (on her tounsels taken out). if you like any information I have about kava kava or so on my opions my duaghters success so far etc, just drop me a line and I will email anyone back that cares to hear why she is pf . there are lots of screats to it I think I would be will willing to share .. thanks for the great story Maryann (Emilies Mom)

Hi Everyboday :) I only learned about the medical name for TTM two years ago. Thanks to the Internet. I started to pull when I was 8 or 9 and was considered recovered some 7 years ago when my hair grew back (even though I still pulled now and then) :( I eel a bit wimpy telling people about my hair pulling as I have difficulty telling my family about it and none of my friends know about the truth. I am really glad now that I find a group of people who can share on TTM. Others' comments enlightened me as ell. P.S. I am originally from Hong Kong but now in USA

I was just diagnosed 2 weeks ago with trich, although I have had it for over 20 years. My mother used to carry me to doctors who shrugged me off. This made me feel as though I was the only one. I am so glad to finally have a name for the condition that causes me such shame, embarrassemtent and stress. I am also glad to know that there are others out there who are willing to support me. What will happen on International Trich Day? Dallas, Texas USA

Her name is Crystal .We have been to a couple of doctors and we don't have it licked yet, but I think I found a wonderful place hat will help even more. I will have to let her come visit you all and I will too if that is ok? Thank god

the bb has been the best place in the world for me!!! I am not a puller but, my daughter is (was, has been pf since july of 98. anyways without all the help I found here I would of been nowhere the bb really helped me as a parent to see what was up with adults how they deal with trich what they went threw as kids with it and what they did to help it etc, I cant thank all my friends from the bb enough for posting there thoughts, feelings, and suggestions for help what to do etc. with out them I would be sure that emilie would still be pulling. so, thank you for my friends from the bb and thank you for someone always answering when I needed help!! Maryann ps, I live in New Mexico, USA.

International Trichotillomania Day- I wish everyone well and much success in the trich war. As the husband of a severe puller, I understand pulling ones hair is a habitual disorder, that is hard to control. I will continue to shave my head in support of trichsters (I like it thay way anyway)

I T DAY!! WOW!! Who knew that we would actually have a day put aside for this disorder! I wish I had all this support years ago, but now that I have found it, everyone has been so understanding, and everyone else knows what everyone is going through! I t ink its great! Thank you everyone for all your work on the sites related to Trich. And especially the Fairlight BB. Without finding that, I would still be going through this alone! ~ Donna

I've said this many times, but this quote greatly applies to the trichsters. "What can't kill you can only make you stronger." Well, this can't kill us, but one thing I know we are, is strong! On the 22nd, I will have a prayer in my heart for everyone. Ha g in there!

Hi, I'm Donna. I'm 31, married and I have two children. I have had trich since I was 12. I currently take Kava Kava and I have been pull-free for 17 days, and counting. I have no urges to pull at all at this time because of the Kava. I am a christian and I know that with continued faith and prayers I will be a longterm success story. God bless to all of you whow suffer from trich every day.

Great idea and great website..... "Great oaks start out as little acorns", and I guess those little acorns are us trich- sufferers around the world. Perhaps if we don't feel ready to yell from the rooftops that we suffer from trich--instead we can send a small (or big if you have mucho dinero!) check to Kelly & Mark who so generously keep the Fairlight BB alive and kicking. I am going to get my lazy butt down to the bank and get an international money order made out in U.S. dollars. Jag vill uppmana alla som ar svenska eller kan forsta det svenska spraket att lasa och "posta" pa Fairlight Trich BB, sa att det finns flera "representanter" fran Sverige och Scandinavien. Halsningar och "hugs" fran Ingrid i Haninge, Sverige, Europa, One World.

Fantastic idea!! I wish I spoke all the languages here, but... we have a common language, don't we? It is so great for me to finally find people that understand!! Really, no words in any language can express how much it means to me to finally find out that there are so many intelligent, compassionate, clever, humorous (sp?), etc. ( I ran out of words, lol) people there are that know my "hidden shame" so well. 0

This is truly a wonderful idea. I think ALL trichsters everywhere should have an opportunity to celebrate who they are...wonderful, funny, warm and caring people from every walk of life. I have been blessed over and over again by the great show of love an support. You ALL deserve a day of recognition for the incredible strength shown each and every day. For me, it is an honor to be a part of the trich community and the mom of a trichster...Robin Germantown, Maryland, USA

Je pense vraiment que un jour international de Trichotillomania juin 22 est une idée merveilleuse. Thankyou de mégohm tellement pour indiquer le jour et tous. Thankyou d'cEq pour votre travail dans le website pour honorer ce jour. (il semble grand!!) Je s ulement ai brièvement lu le bb est-ce que mais j'ai entendu le mention Montana est-je aide dehors à? Si ainsi thankyou également Montana!! Avec la quantité de trichsters sortantdu "cabinet" de nos jours peut-être en juin 22, 2000 nous pourrons l'avoir un jour international proclamé par nos gouvernements à aider à mettre au courant d'autres de ce désordre. Peut-être je pense loin à en avant m is je me sens qu'il ferait beau afin d'obtenir une meilleure recherche interne cette chose et trouver peut-être un traitement:) Amour Tina *********************************************** I truly think an International Trichotillomania Day on June 22 is a wonderful idea. Meg thankyou so much for designating the day and all. EQ thankyou for your work into the website to honor this day. (It looks great!!) I have only briefly read the bb but did I hear mention Montana is help out to? If so thankyou also Montana!! With the amount of trichsters coming out of the "closet" these days maybe by June 22, 2000 we will be able to have IT a proclaimed International Day by our governments to help make others aware of this disorder. Maybe I am thinking to far ahead but I feel it would be nice in order to get better research int this thing and maybe find a cure :) Love Tina

Nice work Meg and co. and I'm very pleased to see the Irish flag up there. I'm 37 and a scalp puller for 27 years. Thanks to you all my pulling has improved greatly and I'm not as hung up about i as before. I met the 'only' other Irish trichster, Frecka, in Dublin last Tuesday and we had a wonderful day. I have my own conference to organise on June 22nd in Kilkenny, but I'll be with everyone in spirit on that day. love you all, Anne
