About Me:
My name is Kayla, My middle name is Delanie, I've had Trich since I was 12, At first I just thought I was crazy, until we looked into it, my hair eventually started coming out on its own, I'd wake up into piles of my own hair or it would come out in clumps in the shower, I'm still having a rough time coping with the new AA diagnosis, but I'm hopeful for a cure.

I have a beautiful Husband, who loves me even though I have Trich, and AA The support helps alot, its good to know he understands.

I hate it, I hate it, I hate it

Posted on July 29, 2012 at 2:30pm 9 Comments

I hate how much it costs to look normal.

I can't go wigless, I have a combo of Trichotillomania and AA, I have HUGE patchy bald spots mostly on the top of my scalp, I'm pale white with black hair, so even when I shave my head completely down to the skin they show up, black patchy spots everywhere, and when I go out in public people look at me like I'm a leper, even go as far as to avoid standing close to me or taking the long way to walk around to avoid me.

Wigs, they are so damn…

Trichotillomania, alopecia, and other hairloss

Posted on April 4, 2012 at 10:30am 0 Comments

I am sad to say that I've had another relapse, after so many months of not pulling, unfortunately I'm suffering from combination of two different types of hair loss, Trichotillomania, and then Alopecia areata, The parts I don't pull, fall out on their own, the doctor thinks its from so many years of damaging hair follicles and now they just can't handle the weight of my own hair once it grows to a certain point.

I think I've just given up, I'm going to be like this forever, because…

Please don't call me crazy

I have trichotillomania, and god I wish I could just pretend that I didnt.

It hurts so badly to finally admit that rather then this being done to you, its you doing it to yourself. and that there is nothing worse then losing friends over this.



I'm married, I love my husband and my one year old daughter. but its not enough, I want friends. but I'm alone.

I have to wear wigs, and I finally put myself in debt and decided to go to a hair restoration clinic to try and help me.… Continue

Rude people

Posted on August 18, 2010 at 9:30pm 15 Comments

I don't understand why people have to be so rude,

My poor ego :(



I was feeling down, (it's really hard to feel like you look good when you're eight months pregnant) but something got me even more down.



I recently bought a wig online, Seeing as how there are no wig stores in flagstaff that was my option.

I've been wearing it for about a month now and as most of you know, Synthetic wigs tend to wear out fast, especially if they aren't the best quality.

Bald spots

Posted on July 18, 2010 at 6:02pm 6 Comments

They've been getting bigger and bigger, until finally I can't ignore them anymore.

The worst one lately is the one at the center of my head.



I used to pull my hair out, (I've been able to stop for quite some time)

But now it's coming out on its own, could it be that all the years of pulling have finally killed my roots?

What do you guys think?

Hey, Del:

First, if you've been able to stop pulling - congratulations! You must have a lot more willpower than I do.

You mentioned people ripping your wig off in public. They should be really, really, really ashamed of themselves; and you're brave to stand up to them.

To answer your question, I've been shaving my head on and off since about 1996 (when I was 25). The longest (no pun intended) I've been able to go without shaving has been about a month. My hair grows pretty slowly, and after about four or five weeks it grows out long enough to where I can (and do) start pulling again. And unless I want my scalp and hair to be a mess from all the pulling, I have to shave my head again.

The problem with shaving is that almost everyone either wants to know why (which I don't feel comfortable telling them); or they read something into it - assuming I'm in the military/police, or a political or religious extremist, and once in a while someone assumes I'm on chemo.

I get the impression that shaving is a little more widely accepted in some foreign countries (the Middle East, etc.) and in some other cultures in America (a lot of Hispanic and African American men shave their heads). But I'm the only white Jewish Southern Californian I know who does it.

Do you know if anyone (a doctor, a sufferer, etc.) has ever written a good book on this?


Best,

J.
