Avoid mirrors. You can sit in front of them for hours, mesmerized. just know that you're not alone, and don't let the jerks get to you. true friends will hold you're hands so you can't get to yourself:)

I also pull from the top which is harder to hide than underneath. I will sit in the mirror and watch myself pull, crying as I go because to watch myself do it is so heartbreaking. You're not alone, stay strong
