Hi everyone.. This is the first time I am reaching out to anyone about my hair pulling. I have been doing it for 14 years now and I am 29. I wish I could stop.. It has recentley gotten worse because I am dealing with some family issues, little do they know I have this issue of my own. I totally zone out when i start to pull and sometimes i can pull for a straight hour. When I realize what I'm doing I get so mad at myself. I am thinking about seeing a doctor, do you think I should? Do medications work? Hypnosis? Only a few of my closest girlfriends know about this and I just told my dad yesterday. I taped that 20/20 episode and had him watch it. He'll support me and wants me to get help but I told him there was no cure for this. ugggghhhhhh so frustrating. The best is when someone tells you stop it, just don't do it.. It makes me want to scream because I can't help. I also eat my hair but not the whole hair just the root(bulb). I think this makes me pull more because I want to keep getting a root. I just want to stop. Any advice or friend support would help..n Thanks for takin the time..
