This video is doing a fantastic job of raising awareness. Unfortunately I can’t sit through it again without pulling my own hair out but if you want to see what trichotillomania can do to someone, watch it.
Not sure quite why but time lapse in particular always gets me chocked up!
This is a video made by Rebecca Brown. She has trichotillomania, an impulse control disorder commonly associated with anxiety. She was diagnosed when she was 11.
Trichotillomania causes a compulsive need to pull out hair, Rebecca pulls from her head.
