  • Seems I missed day 50 as today is day 52. Ah well... Have had some loose hairs over the past couple of weeks or so, both lashes and brows, maybe one or two, no idea, as trying not to think about it. Lash regrowth looks great, brows still need ma…

  • Day 37 today and it's been a couple of weeks! Had lots of stress with the eldest, she had a tummy bug followed by 9 day witholding and no matter how much you try and encourage and explain stuff just won't listen once she gets something in her hea…

  • Day 25 today and I've noticed lately I've started feeling the lashes again. Think had a loose one overnight but couldn't feel it so could have been a head hair. Been neglecting my hair lately with the house move and a new baby so am at hairdress…

  • Am on day 20 today, still not experiencing any major urges. Just a habit to touch every now and again but catch myself fairly quickly. Last time I pulled everything out, there wasn't a SINGLE hair that gave me 'the kick' I usually pull for, just…

  • Completed day 13 just now, almost 2 weeks there. You can kind of say that, last time I got some new make-up but then took a few steps backwards. My reward is that the more hair grows back the more fun it is to put make-up on and I'm not as self-…

  • Hi Michelle! Happy to say am still PF, 8 days today if all goes well. Been worrying though as we all had a cough in the last few weeks. It isn't Covid but hubby has been referred for a chest scan as after 2 weeks his hasn't gotten better. Doctor …

  • I'm back! Was always meaning to but pulling kept escalating over Xmas holidays as was worried about delivery etc. Had a less than great hospital stay but thankfully all went well and I gave birth to another happy and healthy little girl. Unf…

  • Thanks everyone for your support, it really warmed my heart reading your encouraging words. Dog is at home since last Friday, had to go back in over the weekend as was vomiting but is now almost back to his normal self. Still has to rest but good…

  • Well, I blew it today! Pulled out two lashes on each eye. Reason being my dog was taken ill yesterday and diagnosed with liver cancer. Was crying all day yesterday while they were doing scans and was faced with either letting them operate or say…

  • Hi both, thanks for checking in. Makes me feel like I'm not alone. Lots has happened! We finally exchanged on the house after a bunch of faff over the last week and will move on 10th Dec. Excited but also stressed! I'm 34 weeks pregnant now an…

  • I haven't posted in a while because I've been having a very difficult week. Luckily the ointment the GP gave me helped with the problem I was having. Got prescribed a weaker one as can only use it for a week. Haven't started that one yet as on top o…

  • Got rid of the lash today. I've managed to ignore it more than enough. Was a conscious decision and rather than add more anxiety to my already full plate and risk a pulling spree I chose the lesser of two evils. Now going to try and not touch any la…

  • On day 45 today and everything is crap. Been like that since last post. It's a miracle I haven't pulled but have now started obsessing with the lash I originally picked out weeks ago. Hubby thinks I might be developing a bit of pre-partum depress…

  • Hi Neo, thanks for checking in. The hospital confirmed pregnancy is healthy and safe and sent me home. Hence I had to go see the GP for the actual problem. It's still bleeding (which was the cause of my panic) but pain is a lot more manageable. Hope…

  • Day 41 yesterday and I was in such agony. Finally got rid of that pesky brow as cleaned up a few and it was right there to make things tidy and don't regret it one bit. Haven't been obsessing since. Spent half a day in hospital yesterday as was w…

  • I've had a messed up few days. Days 37 and 38 I once again really struggled with urges. Kept making excuses if I just got rid of the lash and brow that are bugging me so much it would be better. But from past experience I know that sooner or later I…

  • Thanks Michelle, that's really good advice. Think I'm so far gone after pulling for 30 years that it feels like pulling is a messed up version of Nirvana and not pulling is a punishment because honestly I really miss the sensation of that perfect pa…

  • Today is day 33 and I've made it past the first month mark! Day 31 and 32 went without any problems, I have been able to leave the brow hairs alone and even to reduce the skin picking habit that I frequently relied on in the beginning to not pull…

  • Day 30 today and have been feeling hairs a lot more than usual, not just brows but lashes too. Guess that's the problem with regrowth, suddenly there are hairs to grab on and tease again. Had a nightmare last night about me pulling two hairs out and…

  • Hey Joy, you're doing so well. Sometimes stuff happens that are outside of your control, like your friend visiting. It's nothing to beat yourself up over, it's important to nurture every aspect of our lives, that too helps with anxiety which in turn…

  • Hi Joy, thank you so much for your encouraging words. It really means the world to me. Would love a PF buddy! Days 27, 28 and today 29 have been rolling on without too much drama. I'm still touching my brows, but it's almost just to confirm they'…

  • Hi Joy, just caught up with your thread. What a great idea and totally needed as don't think many pay attention to how important sleep is. So glad to see you're updating again, please keep us posted how you're getting on.

  • Day 26 almost over, was again easier in terms of urges but still keep feeling the hairs that I've chosen on both brows. Have gone back to read some more posts as it makes me stop touching them. Need more posts to read as sooner or later I'd have rea…

  • Hi Neo, thank you for replying. Your post did me a world of good as I really needed to hear some words of encouragement. I can't go to a professional yet while I'm still waiting for regrowth, was a wonder I managed to go to an eye test few weeks bac…

  • Day 22 and I was at my wits end with the effin eyebrow hair that I've now started to obsess about. It's poking right out and it looks mature in the mirror. I rarely look at hairs in the mirror but this one has been winding me up for ages now, it's a…

  • Day 21 today which means I'm a few hours off 3 weeks PF! I know I should probably be jumping for joy but I feel so deflated. The house move troubles haven't gotten better and on top of it we're getting blamed for the breakdown when our EA told us…

  • Day 18 was easier, probably because after a stressful week with chain falling apart and intense viewings we accepted an offer and fixed it. Have to do all we can to chase solicitors etc. now so we can complete ASAP. Fingers crossed! Day 19 yester…

  • Day 16 yesterday was really hard, again couldn't stop going for the hairs but once again didn't pull. Really miss the pulling now, this is horrible. Day 17 today and one eyebrow from right side came loose. Didn't pull it luckily as didn't feel th…

  • So I'm 14 days PF now and on day 15 today and really struggling. Got a shock yesterday when thinking we'll be moving in a matter of weeks that our buyers pulled out so have to start the whole thing over again and worried we will lose the house we…

  • Thanks Michelle, this is what we used to do in the old forum, it made tremendous difference for me! So the weekend went off without a hitch (day 11, 12 & 13), came back yesterday royally shattered and when I woke up this morning first thing I…
