For me, the shame and guilt hurt more than the act of hair pulling

megan-no-textI was officially diagnosed with trichotillomania for 15 years. Self diagnosed with dermatillomania for just as long. Every day is a bad hair day when you have trichotillomania. You just get really good at hiding it.

For me, the shame and guilt hurt more than the act of hair pulling. I almost don’t even notice the pull but the shame is unshakable.
