    Wripping It Out

    In class I pulled out my hair. I can't even remember why but I pulled out a huge handful, a proper thick load. It didn't hurt that much even though all the roots and everything came out as well. It was at the front where a fringe would be if I had one. My friend was freaking out...

    Feels Good :d

    i pull my hair because it feels good, the pain i mean... i guess i like to hurt myself like cutting myself and pulling my hair because i want to feel something, but i'm trying to stop the habit of it ^_^

    I Want Thinner Hair

    When I feel my hair, I can feel how terribly damaged it is. Especially in this one spot, my hair is very waxy and split so when I feel it, I pull it out. I'll do this to every individual strand that doesn't meet my standards. It's just so gross! I'm very worried...

    Ouch!

    I don't know how anyone can do that. But then other people might not understand why I don't like having eyebrows or cutting my hair off!

    I Hate It...

    It started when i was in 8th grade. So I was roughly about 13. Im 21. This has been happening for too long. Its only in one spot that I do it. And I don't do it because i like pain or anything like that i just feel certain hairs and they dont fit in with the rest. I think this...

    Trichster

    I've had trichotillomania since I was 9 (I'm turning 22 tomorrow) and I don't know if it's going away any time soon. I only pull my eyebrows and eyelashes but I pretty much have no brows. It's easy enough to hide with good makeup. The problem is I've only been able to stop for 2...

    Just a Little.

    Not a lot. But I get bored. And it feels funny. Especially since my hair is dyed. It makes it a strange texture. And is fun to play with. So I pull it out. It's such a weird habit... my god.

    Habit

    I just do, in class, when I'm bored, any time. And its not only the hair on my head if you catch my drift. And there, it is way more compulsive and painful.
