Hi fellow members!! :wave:

I'm a recent supporter for this campaign that's been raising funds to make a documentary film about trichotillomania in order to bring about awareness.
Please visit the website: Trichster
You can also check out the trailer here.

Since there's only a limited time left to gather enough funds to make this film, we need more supporters to make a contribution. The least anyone can do is to share this link aside from spreading the word about trich awareness. Be sure to check their facebook and twitter pages for any updates!

Thanks in advance! I hope that we can put an end to the stigma once and for all! No effort goes in vain when it comes to making a difference. Never give up hope! :hug:

I'd also like to thank Kikuka-chan for allowing me to post this! :D

Pull Free Campaigns [NEW DATES AND NEW RULES]

The Pull Free Campaign begins 1/7/11 at 12:00am your time and lasts until 1/7/11 at 01:00am. As time goes on these campaigns will get longer.

Everyone who successfully refuses the impulse to pull will get:
A news article feature
A club feature
A feature from joufancyhuh
A feature from Kikuka-chan
A feature from RawEm0tion

[this list is always expanding]

Pulling even once will NOT get you disqualified. The requirement for staying in the pull-free campaign is that you RECOGNIZE the motion or the action as it happens and attempt to stop it. However, we do only rely on your word, because we trust you and if you find that you broke that trust, there will be consequences.

yo ive had dermotillomania for 3 years, and it mostly manifests on my head (so i end up with spots just from scratching...) so obviously im no expert on trich.. but i have methods that work for both trich and dermo!! ;v;
--wear a hat constantly, even when you're inside. not just a baseball cap, a beanie or even a swim cap that covers your entire head!! something you cant reach into easily!
--if you pull even 1 hair, immediately stand up and go do 10 pushups lol, you'll be exhausted and it trains your brain!!
--wear rubber gloves and/or keep your hair wet all the time
--tell family/friends to watch and stop you if they see you scratch/pull. ALWAYS have people around you! if you pull on leg/arm hair, wear long clothes,, and NEVER keep your legs under a table. your watcher should be able to see all areas you pull!
--there are certain times and places that trigger trich/dermo!!! for example, when i go into the bathroom before a shower or stay up too late on the computer, i cant help it.. but these triggers are different for everyone. change your schedule so you spend LESS time in these situations!!
--pick wrappers/stickers off containers, pet an animal, tear paper into long strips, squeeze a squishy ball, otherwise keep your hands busy
--pound your fist on the table or LIGHTLY scratch your arm if you catch yourself pulling. please do not actually harm yourself!!!!
--sit in front of a big mirror so you can see your entire body. sometimes seeing yourself in the act will make you want to stop

good luck!! i know you can do it, be strong and never give up<3

I have had this disorder since i was 14. I turned 40 a few days ago. I remember spending hours pulling hairs from my legs...the digging...the blood...the trance-like state. Things have gotten better but i dont think it ever goes away. Tried therapy, all sorts of meds, willpower, 12 step programs, support groups...and i still find myself, most days, with a pair of tweezers in my hand. But, i am finally wearing shorts for the first time in 26 years so there is hope.

I have trich and to be honest am only just starting to admit to myself that it might be a problem. So glad I found this support group, it's nice to know I'm not isolated and their are other people in my position.

Hello. I didn't realised it was a problem until I lost most of my hair, and "hopefully" because I was still very very young my parents realized it and took me to several doctors.

I think if you want to and if it starts to become huge and to bother you, or if you just find enough courage to admit it to yourself :) you should try to meet a specialist, if you're a teen the best way is the Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT, take a look on wikipedia), because it works better on teens than on child or adults. If you're not a teen, other techniques works well too but I don't know much about it ^^

Anyways I hope you will find a solution, and if you're still minor ask help from your parents (but for that you have to find a lot of courage too) because they really can help you.

I wish you honeslty good luck and I hope you will get better :)
