I've had problems with related things like picking at my scalp till it bleeds and then repicking those places so they never heal, and sometimes pulling hairs form my head (not often) for about 6 years. but more recently I have started plucking eyelashes. I get this overwhelming anxiety and compulsion to pluck eyelashes that look out of place etc and I get relieve once it's done. Once again I now have a huge gap in my eyelashes. I went to talk to my mum about it and her exact words were 'oh I can see that's stupid why did you do that? And then 'Jess everyone has eyelashes that look weird you just have to get over it and not so fascinated by them. I've tried therapy but it hasn't helped. I just don't know what to do I look so stupid and just want this to stop before it get worse.
