Trichotillomania is classified as an impulse control disorder whereby the person has compulsive urges to pull out their own hair. (Trichotillomania can have both a physical and emotional impact.)

Since this video, the hair loss has increased dramatically.
I now go bald roughly 3 to 4 times a year.

The majority of the video was recorded on the 16th of May 2009. At the time I was 16. People tend to forget that this video is from years ago. This does not reflect my current Trichotillomania. It's worsened over the years.

This is purely from my own experiences of Trich without the knowledge that I know today. Very little research. I'm talking without aid and on my own. Oh to have had hindsight!

Where am I now? Last updated January 2013:

-I am 21
- I have now taken several types of medication - failed.
- I find tying my hands to tables etc - stops pulling (but not the urges).
- Felt/feel embarrassed in relationships and at work.
- After this video I went bald about 6 times.
- I now have permanent damage and my hair is growing different colours now.
- I now have several wigs, blonde like above, ginger, brunette and curly brunette.
-I've been going bald on and off for about 3 years now however I'm at a point where I finally have a fringe! Horray!
