I have made it to one week. I was so sure that I would not make it. I feel great but also nervous about the next few days, although I am taking it a day at a time.

I really miss not pulling my hair and I have started to keep my fingers busy other ways..putting bandaids on, knitting, playing with my baby girl. I have noticed that she watches me touch and play with my hair and am very concious of this. This is another motivator for getting my pulling under control. People have been rude to me in the past too and yes i've (with guilt) played the cancer and alopecia card. I sometimes want to give 'shock' factor and say I like to pull my hair out!!! (goddamit!)Keep up the pull free days people!
