Natalie shares if she had ever met another person with trichotillomania, who pulls their hair, before the arranged meeting by Hairdoctk.

I have never met anyone else who has pulled like I do. If I have, I certainly didn’t know it, and that’s what it’s about. It’s about hiding it. So I have never told anybody. Prior to meeting TK, I had never told anybody except for people who are very close to me, such as my mother, my husband, and I think those are the only two people, actually, and then I told her.

And I was so ashamed to even go to another hairdresser. I hadn’t gotten my hair cut in two years. I was too shy. You know, they shampoo your hair, they are pulling your hair apart, you know, ready to cut it, and I just had too many patches of no hair. I was very scared and embarrassed to go to a regular hairdresser.

Thank you for all the videos and for just having the courage to open up about trich, let alone open up about it on camera. I am 29 years old and have had trich for 21 years- for the first time i have eyelashes and eyebrows back but it has been a daily struggle to keep it up. I have other family members with it but we never spoke about it and it's funny but I was always convinced everyone knew without me telling but seeing you I realize that it is not so obvious. You are the first person I have seen (rather than just reading about online) that I can relate to- we actually look a bit alike too.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for sharing. It's such a terrible disease but I think the only way it will ever get better is if more people with trich talk about it and more people without trich actually understand what trich is.

Blogging about it has helped me-support from others has been so helpful- http://trichgirl2010.blogspot.com/ and I know tomorrow I will be sharing your info with anyone who actually reads my blog. Good luck!
