Hello, I'm 25 years old and since the age of 7, when I started school,
I started pulling hair .
as a child I didn't have body hair so I pulled my eyelashes and eyebrows.
as pubirty hit...and I started becoming hairy on other places I started
pulling with tweezers .
my legs, my bikini lines, my armpits . everywhere I could.
up until now, that my entire body is covered with scars , i decided to look up the problem .
it appears to be a condition and luckily for me, I'm not the only one who has it.
they call it "trichotillomania" , and experts believe it's because of trauma, anxiety and stress.
sounds pretty reasonable to me ... because I suffer from stress since I remember myself.
still , the issue remains a mistery and there is no REAL treatment ot medicinal treatment for this kind of problem.
because I pull hair on delicate areas , I have an in-grown hair problems and I need to dig with tweezers to pull the hair out, and it injures me and it leaves loads of scars.
I can't stop. if I'm not pulling it drives me crazy.
I have to pull at least an hour a day , it relaxes me so much ...
but I feel ashamed of my body, I wear long pants during summer cause my legs look aweful...
if there is somebody out there who have faced this kind of problem or know someone close to him who suffers from it and has ways to treat this madness... please,
I beg you, let me know,
