“Outing”
Post: 

Hi,
This is the first time i actually dare talking to “someone” (whoever is out there) about it. I’ve been pulling my hair ever since I was 16. Now I’m 39...
Whenever I get anxious, I start pulling. And that is basically all the time. I have a diagnosed anxiety disorder - of course.
And pulling hair is connected with so much shame. The last time I’ve been to a hairdresser has been what? twenty years ago. I couldn’t face the shame of me feeling, no, being so disgusting. And in 30 minutes I have an appointment at a hairdresser. For the first time in 20 years. I am so tense this morning, guess what I’ve been doing? Exactly, pulling my hair.

I hate myself for doing it.
And now I’m a tiny bit relieved to have written something here.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.
