had to try something new
Hello everyone. I am a 20 year old college student who has been pulling my eyelashes for 10 years. I have been doing really well recently and had pretty much full growth back, until today. I am studying for finals, and I know that I pull most when I'm studying but haven't found a way to control myself yet, and so I pulled out most of my upper eyelashes. I was doing so well and now I'm literally back to square one, it makes me hate myself so much. I stumbled upon this site and thought I would give it a go to at least have people that understand how discouraging this is.
I think this is a very important factor of any impulse control disorder. What happens if you pull away from any particular moment of great urge and temptation?I have been trying to explore this aspect recently. It's been difficult to tug myself out of the strong need to self harm, but when I do...it is only if I insist that I am doing it for my well being. I have to talk myself out of the desire...
