Day 1. What to Say…

Day 1. I guess I’ll start by introducing myself a bit. My name is Julia, I’m 20 years old, and I have trichotillomania, and big word you’ve probably never heard of. I hadn’t heard of it, either, not until just last year, my freshman year of college; yet, I had unknowingly been struggling with this condition since about 5th grade, if not younger. So, what is this trichotillomania? Well, TTM or trich is basically a compulsive hair pulling disorder. Not much is really known about it, but if you want to know more about it than I can really explain well, I recommend http://www.trich.org/, a place I just discovered today. Now, why did I just randomly decide to make a blog at almost 11 o’clock at night about some weird, hair pulling disorder? Because today I came across a blogger/vlogger/beautiful and inspiring British girl, Rebecca Brown, or Beckie0, who also has trichotillomania, and I watched some of her videos on her trich channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC61riJ9dHUNKhedeejZfXAg. I was inspired.
This blog is the first step on a new journey for me. For the first time, I am openly speaking about my trichotillomania. Let’s see where this takes me.
