Barbara Lally is an author and advocate for Body Focused Repetitive Behavior awareness and works to break down the stigma, as well as shame, around trichotillomania. She is a proud member of the BFRB community and was featured on our #IamHabitAware campaign and inspires us with her work!
I started a blog, Why Do I Pull My Hair Out, to share facts I learned. I searched online for a way to control my trichotillomania at home and found Keen by HabitAware, the habit-tracking bracelet. I invested in the Keen bracelets because I often pull alone. Keen was crucial to my at-home success. My Keen bracelets remind me when my hands rose, retraining my brain over time to forgo that behavior.
"Thank you for your faithful emails, they are a source of great motivation for many of us. I actually think of my Keen as a "helper", a unique tool to remind me when I am slipping into my danger zone." - L.M.
"This newsletter is excellent...I credit the mere existence of this product and the feeling of community fostered by this newsletter, as two of the catalysts that helped free me from my shame and self-loathing in regards to my trichotillomania." - D.M.
"I won’t unsubscribe. You changed my life. Pull-free for almost 3 months. Thank you for all you do, I haven’t felt this confident in over 10 years." - S.M.
