Hello, friends. In this episode, I answer questions related to struggling with long-term depression and anger, along with living with trichotillomania, the urge to pull out your hair.

Question 1:

I’ve struggled with depression, self-diagnosed, since I was young. I’m 32 now. Been through some rough things as a teen, [sexually abused] in my own home, not by family, and I’ve always struggled with suicidal thoughts kind of since. I’ve got a bad habit of head-butting things to kind of stop me when I get so mad and go into rages. I hate I get so mad. I hate myself for everything. But I love to help people. I clean for the elderly and help them as much as I can. I have a son and fiancé of 13 years. He was my biggest savior, and I love them both dearly that’s why I want help. I’ve fallen into my depression hard the last few years and I don’t know what to do about it. My man and I just got into an argument and I head butted the table so hard I blacked both my eyes. I wanted to and thought I might have killed myself that night. That’s not fair to my son. I want to feel normal. I’ve never talked to anyone bc my [parents] brushed me off and never had the chance or means to do so. I ask if you would be the best for me to talk to? Can you or your wife help? I miss being happy and can’t find my way back. It’s especially hard after my grandma died in 2021. But I feel lost and want to find help. I feel as I can’t do anything right or make anyone happy. It’s not fun..

Question 2:

Hey Duff! Got an easy one for the podcast. Can you discuss trichotillomania and any tips you may have for living with it? Thanks!
