I'm 22 years old and I have been pulling out my eyelashes since I was 7 years old. About 6 months ago I just got out of my first serious relationship (he is the only person I have ever told about this habit of mine) and after him I thought the pulling would be really bad. I pulled right after our break up but after that I did very well. A few months ago I met someone new and by the time I met him my eyelashes were longer than ever before and i was extremely happy about it and was able to wear mascara and I felt like I was normal. About a month ago he told me he didn't think it would work out due to his personal issues and I took it pretty hard and started pulling. When I pull I can't stop. Now I'm down to nothing and I can't stop touching my eye. I feel like when I have some lashes I worry less. But when I dont have any I have bad anxiety and get very depressed. Its hard because its not something that can grow back over night. I just would really like to overcome this habit and feel beautiful and confident. I feel that if I had lashes that I would be a more confident person.
