Hello! I'm new here and this is my first time posting. I found this group with the hope that I can gain insights to help my 15-yr-old daughter who not only pulls her own hair but also the fur, whiskers and eyebrows of our 3 cats. She pulls the cat hair that is "the wrong color" and does much damage to our poor cats' faces! Her therapist almost reported her for animal abuse. Therapy didn't seem to work for my daughter nor did trying to replace the behavior. Punishment didn't work. Rewards didn't work. She is tearing our family apart because we are all so angry that she abuses our cats, but we don't want to get rid of them either. What can we do to help her overcome this behavior? Nothing we try seems to help so I figured I would come to the experts here on this support group. Any advice is appreciated!
Wow, this is a huge problem for me... Dont even know where to start. Does anybody know?
I'm recovering now. the hair on my eyebrows has grown back almost fully and I barely have to use any product. It's been a good month since I pulled my eyebrow hair. I think what motivated me to stop was that I just looked in the mirror one day and did not like what this disorder was doing to me and I did not want to have to live the rest of my life by covering up bald spots. I know this seems so...
