"You Are Only Doing This For Attention."
I started to become obsessed with my hair when my friend showed me what split ends where. I knew what they where and I knew that they existed but I never knew that I had so many of them. I soon became infatuated with finding and splitting split ends to the point where the tips of my fingers hurt because I would try to split the tiny ones constantly. One day when I was combing through my hair my fingers slipped on a really really thick wiry hair. I looked at it for what seemed forever feeling the texture of it. They I plucked it and it felt so good. I kept doing it and here I am now. I mostly pull out those. My friends have recently noticed how much I play and fiddle with my hair and they are always telling me to stop. My really close friend told me it would be a good idea to tell my parents and maybe they could help me. I ignored them and started going online and figured out that my obsessing with plucking out the thick hair might be Trichotillomania. One day I finally told my parents about my habit and they took it lightly and said sure that they would take me to see someone. I dont think that they understood how bad it was getting because they walked into my room a week later and saw a pile of hair on the floor. They got mad and they asked me why I pulled out my hair. They kept asking and asking and the best answer that I could give them was " I know..I just dont like the wiry hair." They got mad. Really mad saying that they should put me in a mental hospital. They continued to ask me why I pull and I couldn't answer because I dont even know myself. They said that they where no longer going to take me to see someone because I am "Only doing this for attention."
