Hi guys, I was wondering if any of you feel the same way, but the reason I pull at my hair is because I like the sharp feeling of pain... I don't even have to yank the hair out, just as long as it is painful :/ Sometimes I use a sharp object like a pen or my nails to poke at my head instead of pulling at the hairs :/
I've been pulling since high school, specifically just in 2 spots, on the right side behind my ear and right on top of my head. The hair is thin there but isn't too noticeable unless you really pay attention, but I'm worried it will get worse :(
I don't really understand why the painful feeling is so pleasurable to me, it seems so morbid, but I just can't stop wanting more D: There are days when I pull / poke so much that my scalp becomes so sore that I'm forced to stop... I've tried searching on other trich forums but no one seems to share this motivation to pull...
