Why Do I Pull My Hair Out?’s Twitter
I hope you found some new accounts to check out. I think seeing the daily lives of trichsters being awesome is so important. Obviously, we get saddened (or depressed) about the state of things, but often we also have such great successes! It’s nice to see that 🙂 As always, thanks so much for reading and take care of yourself. xx Rexie
