43 years in hiding
Me and my 4 sibling all have suffered from Trich. Is Trich genetic? I was told years ago that my maternal uncle had trich in his teens & 20/30s. Our family kept this secret for years.
ME- 43 years since Trich started, hair pulling.
OLDER SIS- wears wig since she was 16 years old, hair pulling
OLDER SIS-pulls eye lashes out only
OLDER BRO- Ten years of hair pulling(deceased)
YOUNGER BRO- Ten years of hair pulling (deceased)
I am a successful lady who suffers when I am alone and full of anxiety. Not sure why I started, or why my siblings started. It's not a coincidence. I am convinced it is part of our genetic make-up. ANY THOUGHTS? Thank You...
