This Girl Took A Selfie Almost Every Day For 6.5 Years To Document Her Disorder

This brave beauty has Trichotillomania — a disorder that gives her the inexplicable urge to pull her hair out strand by strand. In addition, over the past several years she has suffered from bouts of depression, anxiety, and Dermatillomania (a disorder which makes her pick her skin). What makes her so admirable? She keeps fighting. And she’s using her artistic abilities to shine light on these disorders and tell other sufferers that they are not alone.

These photos give us a glimpse into her world. Take a look.
