"I have this urge to pull and pick at my hair. I search for the right one until I feel a split end or slight imperfection with my fingertips. Then I chop it or pull it off. And it's so hard to resist even if it's embarrassing.
I had short hair since junior high when it all started. I envy the girls with beautiful long healthy hair.
The anxiety and depression that accompanies this disorder is always there. I've lost hope in medications. I'm scared to tell my boyfriend about it because he tells me he likes girls that have long hair.
Does anyone else struggle with trichostillomania?
Will it ever heal?"
