So I've recently got a haircut to even all amy short parts with my regular hair during the school holidays (I live in New Zealand the school year is a bit different. The holidays were 2 weeks ago now) and school is a huge stress on me and I've noticed I've been pulling sooooo much ore than I did before!
TIPS ON HOW TO STOP?!
Hey everybody, I'm new here but of course like everyone else, not to trich. I started pulling when I was in 7th grade (so 11?) Right where my bangs were/supposed to be. I don't know exactly what caused this or why I started doing it but after i had pulled the bald spot was so large I had to wear a headband for most of 7th grade year. I would get nasty comments like "Why do you wear headbands...
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...
