Just saw your post about your boyfriend, and I'm sorry to hear it. But if you guys were together for a year and a half and he knew about your trich and everything, then I'm sure your new look just caught him off guard. It def is a very bold and different new hairstyle, but it was a brave decision and probably the most difficult haircut you have ever had. I think this culture relies too heavily on appearances, and maybe he saw it as the beginning of a series of new changes. If he's a good guy I'm sure you'll hear from him soon, and if not' at least you saw his true colors sooner rather than later. If there are any weird typos it is because I'm on my touch haha. But I hope things work out one way or another!
Well now he has decided to move to fucking Portland.
This Wednesday I have an appointment in California for something called Magnet therapy. I have no idea how it works, and frankly im very skeptical haha. I am apparently going to have to go to Cali for maybe 5-10 weeks every Wednesday, so I might just stay there for a month. Im going to let you guys know how that goes…
Hey I saw that you followed me and wanted to check out your blog and say hello. So hello! :) I read all of your posts and can see this blog is pretty new. Idk if you have a personal blog too or if you are new to
Tumblr but I thought it was really amazing that you were able to present about trich and I'm sorry that your mother's illness caused you to start. It kinda sounds like she (like most people who aren't affected with trich) doesn't understand what this means to you. I hope I'm not offending you by saying that, my point is it really is great to have a place to talk to people who get it when you want to talk. Like me. :) Sorry this ended up so long and personal, just wNtex to
Let you know you wags have my support and my ask is always always open to you or anyone. *end ramble*
Parents just dont understand! haha you’re not offending me at all because tis’true! I wish you well in quitting! WE CAN DO THIS!
Hey there! Thanks for the follow! I suffer from trich as well, so I understand how hard it is to deal with. I saw your post about biting nails and I have been doing that since I could chew, they're pretty messed up by now :P The trich I started later, back in middle school, and it's been and on and off struggle for the past 8 years. But we are beautiful people, and we can get through it! <3
If you ever need anything or want to talk about dealing with trich, just let me know!
Thanks you so much! I think its important for us trichsters to talk to one another!
In reply to my post...
I don't even use tweezers! O.o Just my hands. I've always used my hands. And I only pull certain kinds of hairs. Like if they're bumpy or thicker than the rest of my hairs.. Is that weird?
By the way, that hyponosis video REALLY relaxed me!(:
Well I usually use my hands too, but I hardly have hair, and the hair I have is really small so I can only get to them with tweezers. I do that too! I think its becuase those hairs have good roots? I dont know if you look at roots but I do ha. Yeah hypnosis is great ha, I listen to the video everyday!
It really bothers me when people are like “If you don’t like pulling out your hair then don’t do it”. No shit. If it was that easy I would have a full head of hair right now and I would be whipping it back and forth in your face Willow Smith style!
I tottally understand why you'd be worried to tell your friends & if they might talk about it, causing other people to talk. I've never had that problem with trich cause mines not to the point where anyone could notice, unless I wear my hair like 2 certain ways. but I've had that problem a ridiculous amount of times concerning my relationship (& previous ones), also I've had a lot of peole talk about my past. I used to be addicted to several drugs, the main one being heavy opiates like morphine. Finally I learned to just be honest and not hide things; if people had something to say about me they can go ahead. I know the truth. I know who I am inside and how much I care for others, and how I see myself is more important than how random people see me. So really, if you tell them & something like that happens I think the best way to get passed it is just know that who you are as a person is by far more significant in every way, than what kind of disorder or diseases you've been diagnosed with. All that matters is your heart, and idk you obviously but you made a blog specifically for support with other people that have trich. Just by that fact alone, its obvious you have a big heart and you care. Don't let anyone minimize your heart by making you feel ashamed of yourself. This disorder is nothing to be ashamed of. You aren't trich. It's something you really struggle with, but it doesn't define you. So don't let anyone make you think you're defined by a diagnoses. It's just a word; its not who you are. (:
I might have just cried…just a wee bit haha. Thank you so much, I think im going to start telling people tomorrow. I am just sick of pretending to be something im not. Yay! This is what this blog is for!
This semester I took abnormal psych at the community college I go to becuase my mom couldnt trust me with going to a university all because of my hair… not that im bashing community colleges I think they are great.
Well anyways we had to do a 15 min powerpoint on a disorder. I was like “awww yeaaaahh….easy A+ bitches, im gonna do trich!” So the day of the presentation arrives and I get in front of the class do the presentation and played a quiz game over trich where I gave out ridiculous prizes. While I was presenting I noticed that a lot of people had disgusted looks on their face and some were even squirming… at the end of the whole ordeal I asked “Do you have any questions, because I suffer from this.” To my surprise every one was very kind :) They asked a lot of questions, and seemed very interested. When leaving class about ten people came up to me and told me I gave the best presentation.
I dont know why I did it. It wasn’t the plan, but I felt so liberated when I toldl 30 people at the same time, that this is me, this is who I am, and I am not ashamed. Now I wish i could tell my friends… 0.o
Its really sad that people think its cool to have mental disorders. Having them is terrible. They cause so much pain, and not just to us, but to the people around us. Insomnia isn’t cool. When I have it I can pull for four hours straight. Iv’e gone months where every single day I would contemplate suicide. Be thankful that you guys have your mental health. You dont know what I would give to have your fucking brains, and eat them…like a zombie…haha jk.
Sooooooo my name is Arantza and this is my Trichotillomania blog. I made this blog so I could connect with people like me, since we are very rare and it gets quite lonely sometimes. Well let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am 19 years old and headed off to a university next year. I have been pulling for nine years. I used to be normal and had long pretty hair, until my mother was diagnosed with cancer and the trich was triggered. I started with my brows and lashes. I quit that and now I pull from my head mostly, sometimes my armpits…and my legs….haha. Well I hope you guys follow me, we can all use the support!
