Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Battle with Trich

I developed trich as a 20 year old female after an episode of pretty severe depression. My trich presents itself during stressful times in addition to when I am tired. I feel like I have tried everything to stop. I’ve met with a trich therapist in the past and I am currently on meds to help. Unfortunately it just seems to get worse. I have a considerable amount of hair loss on the crown of my head and spend time trying to cover it up. I feel hopeless. Sometimes when I am not even thinking my hand will find my head and pull out the hairs that don’t feel “right” like the hairs that are more rough or curlier. At this point any advice helps. I own a spinner ring. I just want this battle to end because it has left me ashamed, embarrassed, and ugly.

Do a rythmic activity, bouncing a ball, or counting down from 100 or so. Remember you are not alone! This is happening to me too and advice has helped me! YOU CAN OVERCOME THIS!!!!!! ;)
