Trich

Honestly I feel like I have been pulling for all my life. Idk how or why this started but I did. I feel like I do it more when I'm sad depressed or anxious. It makes me sad and depressed my hair is so think now and I have no eye lashes. I feel like cry now just talking about it. I dont want to go to the doctors because I feel like idk. But I need help I honestly do its so sad.

I remember when I first started pulling, literally the day and the moment - I wanted my ears pierced and my mom had told me that week that when you lose and eyelash, you can make a wish on it. That very moment, I pulled out every, single one of my eyelashes and didn't even make any wishes on them.<br />

I know how it feels - like everything triggers it, even occupying your hands doesn't stop it. If you're anything like me, even when you're doing something with your hands, you stop everything to pull without even realizing it sometimes. The only time I have ever found that I have not felt an urge to pull is when I am completely happy with myself. Whatever you have to do to get there, do it, and occupy yourself. Motivating yourself is extraordinarily hard and it's even harder to keep yourself motivated. It is hard to set goals and stick with them with the way society works these days. Tune in and pay very, very close attention to the exact moment when you pull. For example, I am at work and I started pulling my eyebrows out - I feel very tired, anxious, and sad. Recognize the situation and do what you can to walk away.<br />

You're stronger than this and we're all in it together.
