It's my first time posting on hear. When I first signed up for trich coaching 6 months ago, I was advised by my coach to use the forum but I wasn't very keen on it because it felt vulnerable to post about my struggles with trich. I have been pulling my hair on my scalp since I was 9 and I don't know what really triggered it. I'm now 26 and still struggling more than ever. The coaching sessions have been helping me in the last six months but I've had times when I've managed a few days being pull free and some days when I fall of the wagon. I've decided that I want to join the forum after reading other peoples comments about how helpful this community has been to them and reading about the progress has given me more hope that one day i might be pull free too. I hope i can get the accountability and support from this community and also offer my support too. I'm glad I'm not alone in this.
