My daughter's blog

My name is Julie and I have a 12-year-old daughter who was diagnosed with OCD when she was 9 months old. How you ask? Well at that time she was diagnosed with Trichotillomania and Trichophagia. In basic understandable terms, she pulled her hair out and then would eat it. Little did we know what lay ahead for us as parents.

This disorder affects 1 in 50 people. It is a silent attacker and it is curable. Unfortunately, those affected by it usually suffer in silence.

My daughter will post on here from time to time as will I, of our journey as she is now in counseling and we are hoping that this story will help others.
