This is a group for adults, 18+, living with a BFRB (Body Focused Repetitive Behavior). A BFRB can range from nail biting, skin picking, hair pulling, or self harm. I personally have trichotillomania, or hair pulling disorder. I have had trich for 8 years. The purpose of this group is to educate, support, and make friends. Anyone may join, family members, significant others, friends, or those personally suffering from a BFRB. Many people don't know about BRFB's, don't know they aren't the only ones, or have one and feel alone and ashamed of their behavior. I want this to end. Every person's case is different and this is something that will be embraced in this group. From mild to severe I want everyone to feel like they belong. The events will range from movie nights and outings, 101 learning sessions, support group sessions, and whatever else we feel like doing! This group is a safe, judgement free zone. Any member who violates this will be asked to leave the group. There will be absolutely no tolerance for negative behavior towards another group member, either behind the scenes or within the group. I will also be happy to help group members find resources to help them find a healthcare provider, general information about their own disorder, or information on how to tell family/friends. If you have any questions or concerns please do no hesitate to ask me! I am an open book and will do my best to help in any way I can! See you at the next meetup!
