    It started when I began puberty and I began pulling my pubic hairs out. I now have periods of when I do it, I pull out hairs on my legs, armpits, eyebrows, eyelashes (all the time) and pubic hair. I don't know why I do it, sometimes I can sit there for hours at a time pulling them out and I don't even realize I'm doing it for so long. Does this sound like Trich? Should I go see a psychiatrist? I'm already on antidepressants for an ED and depression, but I've never spoken to anyone about this before (I'm 18 now).

    Hi, It would definitely be worthwhile to go and see your GP and explain what you've been experiencing, as they will be able to best asses the situation and recommend appropriate treatment.

    Trich is now thought to be linked to anxiety. Psychiatry isn't needed... it's not something you need to have diagnosed. You either know you have it or you don't. Simple as. See if you can get referred to a therapist. Some treatments help (apparently). But I wouldn't know. I'm a nineteen year old Trichster for the past eight years. No mental health professional has been able to help me.

    Yeah. Sorry for you to hear that.
    I'm eighteen and I have it too. I haven't really ever managed to stop it though, although I haven't had a great deal of professional help. I have bad times with it and better times :P Good luck!
