The trichotillomania time machine
I literally can’t count the number of times people have told me they would love to have a time machine to go back in time and not have pulled. Some people mean that they would like to not have had yet another setback, and today someone was mentioning how much they would like to go back and not have pulled the first hair.
I wanted to start this topic, so that we can talk about the lives we could’ve had if we hadn’t had tric.
I’ll start: my father wouldn’t of left my mother, I definitely wouldn’t have been sent to the school I was sent to – I would never of gone to boarding school, I would’ve grown up in a protective warm family of people who cared for me. My mother would’ve said more positive things to me. I wouldn’t have become so shy that I couldn’t even go into a shop and ask and assistant for something. I would’ve enjoyed my teenage years as a beautiful and carefree young woman, not somebody who couldn’t even look in the mirror without bursting into tears and spent all her evenings holidays and weekends at home alone.
My husband would’ve had an easier time being married to me. My daughter would’ve had a far happier childhood – I definitely would’ve qualified as a doctor much sooner.
I should point out I’m not writing this in self pity, just as an exercise to help us see just how much hair pulling impacted our lives And how important our pull freedom is to us.
Really looking forward to what you other guys come up with.
Love and pull freedom Neo
