Trich is estimated to affect 2-4% of the population, or two to ten million Americans. It's more common than my blood type! Yet I've never actually met someone else that has it. Well, I've "met" people through online support groups, but that's different. With millions of people being affected, there's a great chance that I know someone with trich and I just don't know it. Well... yesterday I found out that someone that I already know and have known for years also has trich. Such a strange feeling. Wish I had known sooner (and I'm sure they do as well). And while we can't go back in time and be there for each other, we can now.
I'm not alone... never was, but now I feel it more- I'm not alone!
