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 jessicaconk
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.

Previous Campaign Winners:

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 :)

Sorry to ask but is this something I should see a docter about? I went as a child but no one could tell me what was wrong with me.

It's like, a mental thing. You should go to a psychologist; it seems scary, but it's nothing to be afraid of. If someone gets on you about it... "Ooo. Making fun of the guy/chic with the mental disorder? Real classy."

I have this disorder too,but I don't pick out my hair,only my eyebrows and eyelashes.And a person at school was picking on me cuz she spread rumors saying that I got my eyebrows "Tattooed" and now my friends think I'm weird.But this group I can relate to.Now I know that there are people out there just like me.
