TLC Retreat

TLC Retreat

Well we’re back in New York after shooting at the TLC Retreat in the Santa Cruz mountains in California. Valerie and I had a great time, though it was difficult to adjust to sleeping in the woods, in a tent, on a hill after living in New York! We met some incredible people and truly had an amazing experience.

I want to thank everyone at the retreat for opening up to us and inviting us to share their experience. I know it was difficult for some people to get used to having cameras around, but we did our best not to intrude on everyone’s privacy. I’d like to thank a few people that we met at the retreat:

Julia, Hope, Avery and their mothers
Rachel
Christine
Marika
Renae
Candice

And especially Kaija, Shannon, Sera, Cynthia, Kim, Sera, Xochitl, Doug, Samara, Jennifer, Susan, Laurie-Ann, Sara, Megan, and Lauren and her mom for sharing their stories with us. You are all incredibly brave and I feel so privileged to have met you.

I also want to thank Christina for allowing us to take part in the experience and believing in us to tell honest stories.

We look forward to seeing you all at the conference in April!!

Below are some pictures we took while shooting:

That’s A Wrap!

That’s A Wrap!

Welcome to the very first blog post at trichster.com. We are so excited to be embarking on this crazy adventure and hope that you follow us every step of the way.

Today we wrapped day three of shooting. It’s incredible what we are learning from interviews given by random people on the street. Almost no one has heard of trich, but many were familiar with it once we gave them a definition. Everyone seems pretty shocked to learn that it affects 15 million people in America alone!

Let’s change that. Please help us to spread our facebook and twitter pages so we can get the word out about trichotillomania. We can make a difference!

To all you trichsters out there- please send us your photos! We want to feature a different trichster each week in the profile picture of our facebook page to show everyone that there are so many people living with trichotillomania out there. There’s no need to feel alone or ashamed. We can do this together!

Stay in touch- we’ll be blogging regularly. Set pictures and videos to come. For now, please
