  • Hi Kitty, thank you for asking! Sounds like you’ve got a full plate, but great work on the week pull free! I’ve managed 15 days pf right now and am rather proud of my streak considering all that is going on, school starting back up in a very hectic …
  • Hi S, I’m an eyelash puller so I can’t help with your questions, I just want to say welcome and encourage you that this is a great place to start. HRT has been helpful for me along with ACT and being aware of and taking action to prevent my trigger…
  • Hi AT, I just want to encourage you because you said you wondered if they would grow back "this time." So, I am 43 and have pulled since 10. I am currently still able to grow all of my eyebrows and eyelashes back after a relapse, even n…
  • 190 days! Wow, that is incredible! I hope you are still doing well. Thank you for the inspiration.
  • Bwstop, I am so glad you are here. No shame here. I'm 43 and still working at remaining pull free all the time. I've had many, many successes in my life and many setbacks. I'm a work in progress and if anyone is judging me at 43, well, they're …
  • Kitty such a great job! 15 days is quite a run and that's usually around the time my urges start giving me a break. Keep pushing through. You are an inspiration!
  • Super good suggestion, Michelle. Delay and distract. Just like a toddler, you have to distract them with something that is pretty enticing to get them to forget that they want that candy. You can do it iz. So glad you are here.
  • Hi Fran, I had to have that conversation with my doctor once, because I was getting very fearful about what eating my lashes might be doing to my insides. I ended up with the scopes and the tests and there was nothing in there. It was a lot less d…
  • That is wonderful news! Half of the battle is feeling good about yourself. And, figuring out what helps. I am so glad you are thinking so positively. I wear false eyelashes everyday and sometimes I feel like "normal people don't have to wea…
  • I think that is an exceptional decision. After many years of involvement with this community, I can agree that when I need support, I come back. I'll look forward to your updates! You can do it. We can all help each other.
  • Hi Green, I think there is a good chance that she genuinely believes that reasoning at her young age. The compulsion to pull for me sometimes is because I am "irritated" with how my lashes grow in, sideways, straight versus curled, down …
  • Hi Lara, Yes, what Lisa said. I did not mean for you to think about 30-60 days in one chunk. That's not what I meant. I just meant for you to stop looking for regrowth for a longer period of time than the 2 weeks you stated. I was just picturin…
  • Hi Lara, I seriously wouldn't panic. My medical doctor told me that a normal growth cycle for eyelashes is between 4 and 6 months. Sometimes when I pull, they come back quickly, and sometimes they take longer to recover. I have pulled my eyelashe…
  • Hi Sarah, I'm sorry to see your post went unnoticed this long! I am a mother of 4 children, 17, 13, 13 and 7. I'm 41 and have been a lash/brow puller for 30+ years. I have times of pull freedom and times of relapse. I work at a school and just …
  • Hi Randomusername, Lash regrowth depends on several factors all at once...your age, how many years you've pulled, how much you pulled out (all vs. some), and your current stage in your "normal" regrowth cycle. I am 41 and still am able t…
  • Hello all! I used to be hp in the forums...since 2006. So glad I'm back. It does feel more comfortable to be open and honest here, not like Facebook for sure! Maybe we can get some good discussions going. I know it was the best thing for me to f…
