  1. Ahalo, my advice to you is to keep looking & try not to feel bad about the auditioning process - they are professionals and should be fine with it,. I get such awful anxiety about seeing someone & not liking them / not wanting to go back & have had them ringing me & sending letters after lol cause I just didn't go back. My first 3 therapists and I never clicked & I stayed with them for years despite it, recently I got a new one & in the first session I made such a break though it was amazing, I finally feel like someone gets me. You can always make something up & say you cant afford to see her anymore & then move on
  2. Hey everyone, thanks so much for your kind replies. It was so nice to see so many replies. Here in Ireland doctors don't really like "medicating" and are often against SSRIs totally, they rarely prescribe benzos as they just go on about how highly addictive they are. I'll look up the names mentioned and suggest them to her, unfortunately I basically have to tell her what I've researched and ask for the drugs. I've switched doctors 3/4 times recently but doctors here don't like the cocktail idea and don't see trich as a real problem. Like I was refused the anti-psychotics the first time I asked because of the off label thing. I don't see a Pdoc, I see a counsellor who I think can't prescribe meds I dont think, I think from reading other topics I should ask to be referred to see a pdoc & tell them everything & see can he prescribe me a few things to try and make a difference. As it's a general practioner who I see for prescriptions = regular doctor. Also re the SSRI I hate to say I cant try any more but I've struggled for years with bulimia which I barely have under control at the moment & when I take them the nausea feeling just makes me induce vomiting up to a few times a day so it's a bit of a catch 22... I think I'm like 100 times more sensitive to nausea because my body is trained to vomit or something
  3. I started when I was a young teenager maybe 10-11, I look for specific hairs and then pull them out and eat the root. I never pull eyelashes or eyebrows but I do pluck from other areas of the body. I am confused as to if this is in the OCD spectrum, Anxiety or some form of mania. People who say they just pull eyelashes and eyebrows seem to sound more like a tic disorder which has also been related to trich
  4. I have bulimia which I can reasonably control, some general anxiety - also not too bad but I've had trichotillomania for several years & now it's really bad. I've tried two SSRIs Zoloft & Lexapro 50mg & 10mg but the nausea side effects of both were so bad that I couldn't keep taking them as they were causing a serious bulumia relapse. I am seeing the doctor soon & the two main side effects I cannot deal with are nausea & weight gain. Is it worth trying any of the a-typical anti-psychotics as the seem to all cause weight gain? I've tried Seroquel 25mg and it just made me insanely hungry but not sure if the dosage needed to be higher. Am considering an MAOI like Mannerix but people seem to say meds for tics and tourettes work well also - any advice at all would be so helpful. Finally I live in Ireland so some drugs you guys have aren't available here & my doctor needs me to educate her - most doctors here really don't know much about trich.
