Trichotillomania and me

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I pulled out about a third of my eyelashes on each eye last night. Why? Who knows? Science doesn't seem to have a good explanation for why 0.6% of people have this disorder. It's classified as an impulse control disorder. The compulsion to pull out hair. I'm lucky its just my eyelashes and not my hair on my head.

I've been very good for a few months, and had a full set of lashes. Now they're bald. Sigh. Why is my mind so defective?

    A friend of mine from high school had tricho brought on by stress. Unfortunately we have gone our separate ways since, but I have heard from others that she has since "recovered" in that she no longer deals with her urges on a everyday basis.

    I wish the same to you and hope you can find what ever you need to overcome.
