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 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...
