I'm 29 years old and have only recently realized that my constant hair pulling and eating is a disorder that many suffer with. I've done it for as long as I can remember and for the most part never questioned or worried about it. I've had many bald patches from pulling which luckily have always grown back alright.
My biggest worry is the fact that I actually bite my hairs into tiny pieces until it feels non existent in my mouth, is there anybody that could tell me if these micro hairs will have a negative effect on me? It's something I really don't notice I'm doing until someone points it out.
Maybe someone else who does something similar could help me? I don't envision that I could go more than a few hours without pulling my hair out, I'd slip back into it without realising. Any tips for stopping would be great
