6 1/2 years of selfies show her life with mental illness
September 12, 2014
Rebecca Brown spent six and one half years filming her face on a daily basis. Rebecca suffers from a variety of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, trichotillomania, and dermatillomania.
In her words:
A: Trichotillomania. It’s a complex hair disorder, where I am compelled to tear it all out strand by strand. It’s classified as an ICD (similar to OCD).
“ICD” means impulse control disorder. “OCD” means obsessive-compulsive disorder. Dermatillomania is a condition that causes one to obsessively pick their skin.
Rebecca Brown is an amazing individual who is letting other people who suffer in silence know they’re not alone.
