It's BFRBWeek! Body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) is a general term for a group of related disorders including trichotillomania and dermatillomania to name a few. A common misconception is that these are just habits or tics, but the reality is that they are complex and often compulsive disorders that can be physically and emotionally destructive.
I have trichotillomania, so #BFRBweek is super important to me. These disorders can result in a lot of shame, isolation, and self-hate if you don't have the right facts and support system! So, if you think you may have one of these disorders, I encourage you to check out bfrb.org for more information and TONS of awesome resources. <3
