An excerpt from the post:
I longed to have someone like me to talk to, cry with, to share the hurt and shame. Someone who would understand what I was going through. I wanted someone who would get it, get me, see me – the real me.
So here I am, writing a blog about trichotillomania. Here I am, a voice, for those not ready to speak up.
And that purpose, I spoke of is this:
I am here to let others know that they are perfect exactly like they are AND exactly like they are not.
I am here to listen and share my story.
I am here to be the person I always wished I had had in my life.
I am here to eradicate the shame around trichotillomania.
I am here to step into the shoes I was always meant to wear.
I am here to love myself and all of you.
I was meant to be a voice.
And today, I am here to be that voice, The Voice of Trichotillomania.
