Rebecca, a 13-Year-Old girl was diagnosed with a disorder known as Trichotillomania, in which she used to keep pulling her hair.
Mayo Clinic tells, Trichotillomania is a behavioural disorder which involves irresistable pull hairs from different parts of the body such as scalp and eyebrows. It may cause significant distress to the person and may resist the person to live the normal healthy life.
Let us know her whole story.
Rebecca told, she used to feel relieved when she pulled out her lashes, then it progressed to her eyebrows and finally, started pulling her hair from the scalp.
When she was 15, her condition became worse and to hide her patchy bald she started to wear a wig.
Once someone even pulled her hair from behind in front of so many people. People keep bullying her throughout her adolescence. Fortunately, in 2012 she met a guy who accepted her even after knowing about her disorder. And, then Tim showed unbelievable support. On their wedding day, Tim gifted something to Rebecca which will make her live a normal life.
