Hi all. I'm new to this group so this is my first post. I've been pulling out my eyelashes and eyebrows since I was 13, and I'm now 26. I've been pull free now for 6 days. This is the longest I've gone without pulling at least since early Summer, and I want to keep going, obviously! My eyelashes are coming in, and even though they're short, I can wear mascara now (so excited). My eyebrows still look crappy. I've been off work for the past few days, and that's the place I had been pulling the most recently. So...my goal is to make it through my first day back (Friday) without pulling. I like following everybody's stories and it's soooooo great to know others are struggling with the same issue. I hope I can catch myself before I pull and take some time to think about the support I've gotten on this site!
