Trichotillomania And The Power of Hope

Have you or a loved one found yourself feeling frustrated and tired in your effort to free yourself from trichotillomania? Have you found yourself tempted to give up hope?  Have you already?

This week’s video shares with you two stories of two young ladies of nearly the same age. One has been pulling her eyebrows and eyelashes since the age of 7, and the other – she’s been pulling since age 1.

Try This On for Size…

Can you imagine having endured what felt like compulsive hair-pulling for your entire life? Virtually never having known a day without it?

And when over the years you’d tried various methods to wrest back what might feel like some sense of control over your pulling, with only repeated disappointments to show for it – how much hope do you think you’d be holding out for a cure one day?

Most might have given up hope by now. And that’s just about where our now 18-year-old client found herself before meeting us.

Courage And Hope – One Powerful Combination

Yet with some notable courage, this young lady chose to embark on a journey of self-discovery. She chose to trust a resolution of her trichotillomania could indeed be possible after all.

As of this writing, we’re only a little over two weeks into our Program with her.  But her results have already far surpassed her expectations. More importantly, her feelings about herself have changed completely. 

Her mother couldn’t be more thrilled.  And we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it. 🙂

Check out this week’s video to learn how the power of hope can indeed make all the difference in the world.

Trichotillomania Worries? Here’s How to Get Off The “Worry Wheel”

Glei and I met a young client last week for her 6-month check-in.  To our knowledge, this 13-year-old girl had been doing amazingly well in staying free from trichotillomania since very early in her Program with us.

When we called her mother to set up this appointment, we were suprised to learn that something had become a real problem – and that they wanted to see us about it as soon as possible.

We met with this client last week, and thankfully, it wasn’t at all what we feared might have happened (e.g. that perhaps this young lady had gone back to pulling!).

No – instead, it turned out this young lady was so comitted to not going back to pulling, she found herself consumed with worry that somehow, some way, she might.  Anytime she so much as found an eyelash laying around, she would run to her mother greatly concerned about the possibility that she might have pulled it – without even knowing it!

So what do you about a challenge like this?  How do you help a person learn to calm down, to settle their fears about what could go wrong – and instead to expect the best?

That’s what this week’s video is all about.  Enjoy!
