used to it - what to do?
Post: 

hi all! i have had this condition since teens (i'm well into my 30s now) and i've been to therapy and it didnt work for me long term.
i still pull, though what therapy really did for me was removing the shame and understanding i'm not alone with this. i no longer feel freakish

the negative side of it is i learned to live with it and i came to terms with it. so no longer bothered by it enough to really make an effort and stop

kind of a catch, aint it?

well just wanted to put it out here, if anyone has some thoughts, please share!

Hi Nohat,

Thanks for sharing your experience with the forum. It is great that you have learned to let go of the shame associated with this condition. Certainly this is a chronic condition that is never cured but rather managed. It certainly would be interesting to hear others' thoughts on this.
