I suffered from Trichotillomania during high school, pulled ALL of my hair out of my head. Had to go to high school for 3 years with a wig, endure teasing, horrible years. It has scarred me so bad.

I want so much to learn to love and accept my hair. That is hard enough when you have curls, which the world tells you aren't the "norm," but when those curls hold the memories of so much self-torture at the same time... So hard.

I'd like to find people who went through this as well. I'm trying to process the painful memories that feel like such trauma, and I want someone to talk to who knows what it's like. (I am talking to a therapist too of course.)

Any advice, support, etc. would be welcome
