Wow, how do I start?
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 of not having sore eyelids when I open my eyes first thing in the morning. Words just can not describe how much I hate having this. I probably sound really dramatic and silly right now, but you know what? That's apart of all the small things and frankly doesn't matter
I'm posting on here because I want to express how I feel about this. Expressing how you feel is much healthier than keeping your thoughts trapped inside of you. It also helps you cope. What I'm really trying to say to: let it all out! That's what this place is for, right?
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.
hi everyone im new to this page and to cut long story short i am actually considering planning group meetings outside of your comfort zone to talk about your feelings to complete strangers, going to a park sitting in a circle and discussing your symtopms ? Would anyone be interested in becoming apart of this? I am located in melbourne Australia. Pls comment below if anyone would like to join...
