I have just joined the site today as I am at my witts end with this disorder! I am 28 and have been pulling for a bout 10 years but it’s really worsened in the last couple of years.
I definitely pull more when feeling anxious and my hair loss itself is now making me feel anxious and depressed a little.
I have noticed a lot of bald spots now and I pull so much that my hair is starting to break away so underneath there is nothing left really.
I don’t really talk about it as I don’t think people fully understand and when I do people tend to look at me quite funny and just brush it off as if I’m weird or something.
With lockdown now happening I have even more time to pull so it’s getting worse all the time and I’m embarrassed of how my hair looks.
That felt really good to get off my chest. Any one with any advice/thoughts please reply.
Thank you :-)
