About the Author
Sandy has been living with trichotillomania since the age of 7. She is a writer, blogger and speaker who is passionate about eradicating shame around trich as well as other body focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs).

She has also had the honor of speaking on The Success Panel at the Trichotillomania Learning Center's 2013 Annual Conference. Sandy is a voice for those living with trich, supporting them to lead the extraordinary lives that they desire to lead, as well as educating those that are unfamiliar with the disorder. Sandy sees her life as a journey. She enjoys her family, friends, nature, exercise, living life authentically and is a lover of animals. She cannot resist a good pun. Sandy loves spending time with her niece & nephew as well as her cats. She believes that everyone has a gift and loves that she can make a difference in people's lives.

I downloaded a copy of the book when it was done and started reading through everyone else's essays. I can tell you that each and every story is worth reading. Each writer's own unique voice carries through as they share their stories about the first time they pulled, their family's reactions, early unhelpful experiences with doctors, and their struggles to go "pull-free".
I am making sure to direct family and friends to this book as an accessible, educational resource. And I'm keeping my copy close at hand for those moments I need to get inspiration to stop pulling or remember that I'm not alone.
Side bonus: proceeds from the book are going to the Trichotillomania Learning Centre and the Canadian Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviours Support Network. I can tell you as someone with trich that these organizations play a key role in helping support research and training for health service providers, as well as support for patients with trichotillomania. There is not a lot else out there for us.
