My Blog through recovery from Trichotillomania. Im 20, Irish. Been suffering for 12 years but this summer I got control of Trichotillomania,
ONE WEEK PULL FREE!
Thank God, finally getting back on track.I can do it!
Activation comes before motivation!
Bring on two weeks pull free.
Maybe it’s just me, but anytime I pulled a hair after few days pull free. I’d think..”this is it, I’ve relapsed, back to days of pulling spree”.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
That may of been what you have always done, but it can be just one hair, you are let ,you are bound to, but just remember, pick yourself back up.
I find however, if you can talk to yourself and imagine the smile on your face when you put your hand down and didn’t pull. I am currently going through a pull free phrase, and I am so determined to keep it up, not even one hair, cos then I am feeding Trich. Whereas now, I am in Control. Because I am in Control, I am the one doing the pulling and I am the one who can stop it.
"If you have reached a point in your life where you want to change, you need to be prepared that not everyone will be willing to come along for the ride. Your passion and enthusiasm may sometimes get you into trouble with those who don’t share it. Some people will be ready to pounce and criticise you for many reasons. There will always be people who are jealous, judgemental, critical and opinionated – but continue to be you anyway. Don’t let the energy-drainers stop you from being you and travelling the road you want to travel."
"When you’ve hit bottom in your life and are suffering deeply, that’s the time to be strong. Don’t give up; instead, look at yourself and say, “Enough is enough. I won’t get caught in this pattern again. Today is the day it ends.”"
