Hello, my name is Rebecca. I'm known as Beckie0 on YouTube. This is my journal about my experiences with Trichotillomania.

Summarising in 300 characters or so is hard and my message is a little mixed. Point and anger still stand. That programme has infuriated me.

The Speakmans

There were many things wrong with The Speakmans episode, but one line that was said has stuck with me.

When the man in The Speakmans said to Danni “Sad is what I feel when I look at you” - I felt so angry at him. No one has the right to say that to her or any of us. No one has the right to make you feel ashamed for having Trichotillomania. I felt they were cruel and patronising towards her, from what I saw in the programme . I’d have said something like “I can see the pain and sadness, but I can also see a fighter who has obviously been battling for so long. I think you brave”. I still think her brave for going on the programme in the first place - that was good… I just disagree with the treatment/style and technique of The Speakmans. Does anyone else feel like this?

Have any of you seen “The Speakmans” - Trich programme?

I’m watching it now and I’m rather angry/frustrated.

I’m fascinated, what do you think?

Legs. Mother and Daughter.
I must admit, I do feel lucky being blonde. If I had dark body hair, I think I’d tear out that as well. Dark hairs upset me. Even my darkest hairs are not as dark as brunettes hair would be, and it aggravates. I’m grateful to my body for being so blonde, it’s helped :).
