Hey everyone. I’ve never joined a forum before so I’m not really sure how this goes...welp here it is:
I’ve been pulling my eyelashes and eyebrows since I was about 8 or so. I’m 15 at the moment. In the first few years it was barely anything to notice, but I remember my mom saying something to me when I was younger and that’s how I remember. Anyways, for the last couple years whenever I feel stressed, that impulse comes out. I naturally have thick eyebrows and eyelashes, so it’s not surprisingly noticeable. You can definitely see bald patches in my eyebrows, and sometimes there are sparse patches in my eyelashes. I’ve tried to stop so many times, but the impulse is too strong. Sometimes stress balls and plucking a hair tie around my wrist work, but only temporarily. Does anyone have any advice for me? I could really use it! I’ve never known anyone that shares the same problem as me, so it feels great to finally share it.
If you’ve read this far, thank you!!
