one giant leap…


for all kater-kind.

after 20 years of pulling my hair out and thinking that it was my fault, i know now that it is not. i cannot control it. i have OCD, more specifically TRICHOTILLOMANIA. i went for my 1st doctor appointment today. i was so nervous to go to the doctor; afraid that she wouldn’t know what my disorder was, afraid that my disorder wasn’t severe enough, afraid that i couldn’t get any help, etc.

when i got there dr. tehrani was very compassionate and was blown away that i have been pulling my hair out for 20 yrs and wasn’t aware of any such syndrome. she was so happy and relieved that i took the 1st step and went in to the doctor. so, needless to say…i am on my way to getting better. tomorrow i have to call around and screen for a behavioral therapist.

what a journey i am about to embark on…i am so ready!
