Aneela first contacted TLC in 2013, looking for solutions to her own trichotillomania. Now, four years later she has invented a technology to help many other BFRBers, as well as herself.

“Talking with so many people has helped me realize the disorder may always be with us, but it’s how we deal with it that counts,” said Aneela. “BFRBs are not welcome in our lives, but we can strive to get to a place where the space they occupy is tiny.”

In addition to financial support, Aneela consistently includes TLC in HabitAware’s public relations and marketing programs.
