At least 2-3% of people suffer with body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRB). 

That's twice the estimated number of people affected by OCD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or anorexia, (according to National Institute of Mental Health).

Wow- so many people have heard of OCD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and anorexia.  But still so many have never heard of trich (or other BFRB).  Why do you think that is?

  1. I think that a lot of people compare it to something like nail biting, which seems so minor (even though it isn't always). It seems like people have accepted that anxiety and OCD aren't usually things you can just stop because you want to. Hopefully someday people will realize the same of Trich. Love <3
