It is estimated that 2-4% of the American population is living with trichotillomania. Because so many cases go unreported, the numbers may be much higher. Living with trichotillomania can lead to feelings of shame, depression and anxiety. Some living with the disorder feel so much shame it leads to isolation. Many go to great lengths to hide a truth they feel ashamed of: They are pulling their hair. Some will not get treatment for fear of being judged and want to avoid feelings of embarrassment. It's time to let go of these feelings of shame. It's time to release the worry of what others will think and say. It's time to embrace the beauty that each and every one of us possesses. Let's believe we are beautiful - because every single one of us are. 15 contributors from around the world openly share their personal journeys. We're making profound discoveries together: There is hope. We are not broken. We are not alone. Read on, and find the next chapter of your story...
