I think admiting you have trich & pull your hair is the hardest thing a puller has to do.  Telling people is definitely next on the list.  Telling a parent you can’t control your own body is terrifying.  Being worried they might reject you is awful.  I’m sad to hear from other pullers that they’ve had just that type of experience.  Considering how accepting my parents have always been, I can not even fathom how parents could act in a cruel manor towards their own suffering child.  But if they don’t understand, they don’t understand.

Now we have an easy tool in our arsenal to help our parents, husbands, boyfriends, and even other family members learn about & understand our struggles.  I’d love a version for mothers too!!  Even if you have a good relationship with your parents, they know about your pulling, and are supportive, this is worth sharing.

Thanks to TLC for coordinating this project.
