  • While many people get the image of two women fighting, pulling on each other’s hair. Well today we want to talk about a different type of hair pulling, a serious impulse control disorder problem for some people. Trichotillomania (trick-a-till-o-mania) is a disorder that causes people to pull out the hair from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic area, underarms, beard, chest, legs or other parts of the body, resulting in noticeable bald patches. Hair pulling varies greatly in its severity, location on the body, and response to treatment. For some people, at some times, it is mild and can be quelled with a bit of extra awareness and concentration. For others, at times the urge may be so strong that it makes thinking of anything else nearly impossible. It may seem to resemble a habit, an addiction, a tic disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Our guest today is author
    Abby Leora Rohrer who is an ex 27-year compulsive hair puller. Her book, " What's Wrong with Pulling My Hair Out? Breakthrough Secrets & Powerful Answers to End Your Trichotillomania Forever Without Medication, Willpower or Diets” is based on her own healing experience with the disorder over 10 years ago. It provides the first rays for hope and healing from the previously grim outlook for hair-pullers.

    Abby Rohrer is a former 27 year sufferer of the “incurable” compulsion to pull her own hair out, medically known as Trichotillomania. Abby, who healed herself in 1994, is a visionary and transformational healing mentor and author.

    Abby guides others to identify painful life-long patterns and to fully transform them into healing and personal freedom. While many write and speak about personal transformation, Abby Rohrer has lived it – from the wounding of a traumatic childhood, through freedom and redemption. By working on herself and with students, Abby has come to know the deep connection between our relationship wounds and our life-long struggles with visible and invisible repeating patterns, including those which result in addictive and compulsive behaviors that keep us trapped in a self-imposed prison.
