hey people i am new here and i wanna say i had trichotillomania for 2 years and i promise that even though it is really hard to stop you can do it. i have officially gon two years without puling. unfortunately i thought scratching my head would be better and now my head is covered in scabs and blood, along with my face. please if you are going to do a substitution for pulling DO NOT SCRATCH it makes things worse.
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.
