It's called trichillomania. I have it too, except with my eyebrows

I'm so glad I read this. I have a bad habit of pulling out and thinning my right eyebrow.. I have taken a long time to try and pin point what triggers this. I have realized two triggers:

1. when I'm at the computer (boredom?)

2. when I am concentrating really hard on something. (stress?)

I also peel the now callous cuticle and skin that grows around my thumbs.. I'm almost positive I do this when I feel insecure and inadequate in my own abilities.

Anyway I feel better knowing I'm not the only person who is caught up in habits of self mutilation. I guess I'm not that weird.. :)

i thought i was the only one to do it too glad to know there r others

the whole WORLD is weird :) so don;t worry about it :) lol your not alone
