I would like to share a piece of my story with you. I started pulling when I was 13 and I'm now 26.
It has been very hard. I went through my highschool years with no hair, brows or lashes. I was always picked on and being called baldy. The people who I thought were my true friends turned out to be my worst enemies.
I found it even harder to find a guy who would even speak to me in public much less date me. Most guys found me revolting or they thought they might catch what I had. Being to ashamed to tell them what I really had I just let them think that. I grew up in a very small-minded town where everybody knows everybody. That made it all that much worse.
Despite all of this, I managed to keep my grades up and after marrying and having a son, I am on my way to becoming a nurse.
I struggle everyday, praying that one day I'll have a full head of hair that I can be proud of. I'm a good person and don't understand why this happened to me but I know God has his reasons. If I was given this disorder so others can learn then so be it. If anyone knows where and how I can get help, please, my ears and eyes are open.
Thanks for letting me share some of my story.h
