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've read that castor oil helps with growth. I use to use it but I can't stop pulling long enough to let it work.

Oh, well i suggest you try to use technology less then usally cuz u get distracted, have a lot of sleep, stop worrying and try Vaseline and the most important is try not to pull eyelashes and use make-up to cover it

Thank you for the tip Jen1234. I completely understand stopping long enough. Mine goes in bouts.

Piamia212 with work it's hard to not use technology. I try so hard not to pull though but it is definitely a struggle. Thanks for the tips!

    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...
