My Story (I'm New Here)
Hi everyone! I am new here. I started pulling in 4th grade when a family member was in a car wreck. I've had other tramatic events and pulling has always been my relief. There have been times I've stopped to get my eyelashes to grow back but I always relapse. I get so excited when they are long enough to wear mascara but once I start pulling again it really breaks my heart. I just want to be a girl who has long, beautiful eyelashes but I don't know how to get them to grow back thick and actually keep them. I would love to hear everyone's suggestions.
I was wondering if hair Twirling is a form of trichotillomania. I have been doing it since business school back in 2005 and perhaps longer. Seems to get worse the more stressed I am but also happens when I am calm. It's just a habit that I can't seem to resist.
Hi, i'm almost 15 years old and i have been pulling since i was 8. what is everyone's ways of coping or stopping?? ive tried everything
Trichotillomania is a horrible thing to have. It destroys your self esteem and confidence, It makes you a target of insults and bullying...And those are just some of the effects of having it. I pull out my top eyelashes and my eyebrows and I miss the feeling of lashes on my eyelids and being able to feel real eyebrow hair and not just bare skin covered up by eyebrow pencil. I long for the feeling...
