Had a maths test today which made everything a bit worse today and last night.

Hair count:
13 but I’ve also picked the skin on 4 of my fingers red raw
I try and keep my nails short to prevent picking (and also to prevent my nails slicing my skin lol, too fragile because of my EDS), idk if that'll work for you though? Well done on the low count for the hairs though.

i haven't updated in nearly a month :ninja:

but i have been documenting stuff:

week 1:
between 2 and 10
8/10

week 2half term)
between 0 (!) and 15
6/10

week 3:
between 3 and 34
6/10

week 4: (this week)
between 1 and 40+ (lost count )
overall mood 3/10-7/10

so there's not an incredibly noticeable correlation between mood and my trich, but then again, i've not had a great day in a while so i don't really have anything to compare it to. :dontknow:

12/11/18
Hair count:
0 (!) but had an awful day
several attempts at some eyelashes but none came out :sad:

13/11/18
Hair count:
11 :dontknow: still feeling pretty bad

14/11/18
Hair count:
3
bit better

15/11/18
Hair count:
1 so far (at the time of typing)

but i think because i'm trying to reduce the amount of hairs i pull out, i then have no outlet for stress and bad feelings, so that could be a contributing factor to why my mh is crashing down to the floor :unsure:

and mock week next week which is going to be a blast (not)

Two trich free days in a row! :eek: probably first time in a few years :yikes:

Hopefully this will be a trich free mock week :yep: :crossedf: really hope I can get this goal, but tbh and amount of consecutive days (whether it is 2 days or 7 in a row) will be a massive achievement

Great news! And like you say, any amount of consecutive days is great!

Try not to beat yourself up if it doesn't happen, though. Mock week sounds stressful :afraid: Good luck for it! :hugs:
