  • Oh my word, I had the weekend from HELL. Saturday I woke up with pain at 10 on the painscale and was violently ill. Shaking, hot and cold, pain everywhere. Completely unable to walk or wash. Thankfully feeling a lot better today but I absolutely…
  • How are you doing now, Sassci? I understand the dryness and irritation - for me coconut oil really helps. As for the release from the build up of anxiety, that was a great description. Exercise offers this also and so do simple tasks like crackin…
  • Hi Manicpanicchick I completely understand what you are saying about getting so excited when you find a big root. Even after 15 years pull free, my mouth still waters at the thought of that juicy root. I have found alfafa sprouts really help with…
  • Thinking of you, Carla. I am sure you can have a better day tomorrow - fresh start, huh?
  • Oh Philomena, my heart really goes out to you. It is so easy to associate and sympathise with your experience. Childhood should not be ruined by that kind of experience. I know people will really get where you are coming from. Keep talking and …

  • That makes a lot of sense, Memo. It can seem as though you are compelled to behave in this way, and for me, those two hours would pass in something of a trance ... it felt like it just happened. When I speak to parents of young children who hairpu…
  • That is an excellent question, Max thanks for posting it. With trichotillomania, there is generally over-reactivity in the emotional brain systems. This leads to intense feelings, which some experience as anxiety or even depression. When the chemi…
  • I have plenty of advice, Elinor, and thanks for posting. I am not sure you will like the advice but it is purely to push on. This week I have managed to write five worksheets, even though my diary is jam packed full. If you have a friend who is a…
  • I thought I would start this thread today because I feel like I am on a massive growth spurt. I am conscious that due to just how complicated everything is and how interwoven, there is potential to set myself up to fail. Hoping I can stay on top o…
