Because I've had Trichotillomania since I was 14 years old and now it's 14 years later and I still haven't stopped and every time I think I'll stop I never do. I would tell people that I had an incident with an eyelash curler.
14 years. I started wearing heavy eyeliner in 9th grade and I've been wearing it ever since. For about 6 years I wore fake eyelashes everyday, but some friends convinced me that I was still pretty without it so I stopped doing that.
Mentally I've tried to stop. I would make deals with myself or try to regulate how many hairs I pull out of my face, but I can't stop. My condition is mostly my eyelashes, but I pull hair out of my pubic region, my legs and once in a while my head
What can I do to stop? I don't want to take any medication. What holistic methods can I try? Would hynosis work? I'm finally ready to squash this habit. I just want long beautiful eyelashes and not be a prisoner to makeup anymore.
Statistics, answers, help, comfort.
I found the TLC website while I was researching Trich on youtube.
