If I have missed any important sites from this list - please let me know and I’ll add them - thankyou! :).
I’m not really in touch with the trich community (mostly ‘cause I really don’t want to think about or remember it), but it’s Awareness Week! If each and every one of my followers could just check out one of these links, I would appreciate it a lot. You might learn something, or realize you know someone with this disorder. You might even realize that you do this too. I hadn’t heard of it when my counselor noticed me pulling.
Yeah, just, if you could take a little time out of your day to better understand the people living with trich or dermatillomania, that would be awesome. I love you guys! :)
