      Hi

      I’m new to this forum and am hoping it’ll be good to chat to people without feeling embarrassed. I’ve been pulling hair from being around 10. I think the death of my grandad triggered it but I’m not sure. I go through phases of pulling, picking, pulling split ends and inspecting the hairs. It’s generally worse when I’m stressed. I’ve tried counselling but they basically said I don’t need it as I’m not mentally ill! I would love to have the lovely hair I had as a child 😩

      Hi Teekee,
      I'm glad you joined! I 've recently joined and although it is overwhelming me at how many people have similar stories to mine it is a comfort to know we're not alone. I'm an ex if you could say that, hair puller, for 35 years. I finally said enough and really , really tried my damnedest to fight off the intrusive thoughts. Like you, the regret is was I live with now, and that's mainly why I'm on the forum, Stopping early enough to one day enjoy a full head of hair is not possible for me, but seeking help and advice might be for others. When I first started forums or even computers didn't exist! so there's hope now for people to get this help before too much damage is done Yay! to progress!
