Dear Maria and Brian
I cannot express enough gratitude for all that you have done for me! Having had trichotillomania since I was a young girl I have always been very very conscious of it and always wondering about what people were thinking about me...Many people probably didn't even notice half the time but the damaging effect it has had on me and my self esteem has been life changing in a negative way. I often think of the ad on TV where the lady is trying to lose weight but she has a ball and chain wrapped around her ankle as she can never let go of that issue in her life. In the ad it follows her everywhere and affects everything she does. So this is the same with my hair pulling. The destructiveness of this disease follows me everywhere and I cannot rid myself of it or how it affects me physically (no eyelashes and thinning hair) and even more so emotionally and psychologically.
I have had the hair system now for one full week. Maria you won't believe how much less I am thinking about my hair and what others are thinking. And it seems to be lessening daily as I become more accustomed to the system. I feel more confident, I feel pretty for the first time in years and no longer am I worrying of someone noticing a bald spot. I ams so excited and thrilled...I will update you as I continue to grow in confidence and esteem.
