Hey, I'm Leanne. Just joined DS after lurking for quite a while. I've pulled ever since 10th grade (almost 3 years ago) when I started taking Concerta for ADD. I don't know why I never realized that it was the meds, it actually should have been obvious. But I went off of them in March 2008 and even though that made the urge far weaker, I still pull. I think it's out of habit though. So I need to break it now! For the first part of the summer, I was doing great! Then I got a full time internship with the Army, so I've been sitting at a desk, 40 hours a week for the past 3 months, which has totally got me pulling again. I just looked in the mirror and realized that I have a thin spot, on it's way to become a bald spot. URGH. I know I can stop, I have before. I also know that I have beautiful hair when it's all grown out. I just have to force myself to stop again. Easier said than done, so I'm going to do it different this time, hopefully for the long run. It's not so much that I'm self-conscious about it, I just don't like the fact that it can control me like it does, you know? I'm going to college a week from today and I know I've gotta get it under control.
