It's considered a branch of OCD because of the compulsive behavior and it sucks it sucks badly..considering i have to shave my lower regions often because of the severity of it and I've managed to de-sensitize a lot of nerve endings from ripping the hair out >.<

I know the reason for the compulsion behind it, but yeah. Maybe someone will read this and think, OH! I do that too xD

For those of you who don't know and are to lazy to look it up Trichotillomania is a hair pulling compulsion, commons the hair on your head but it can be anywhere on the body theres hair. I just have no desire to do it to my arms or legs because there really isn't much hair there..

I know someone who used to pull out her eyelashes.

Re: Trichotillomania
Since I was about 8 years old, I've been pulling out my eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair on my head.

My OCD clashes with it in regards to it needing to feel "just right" and "even" and certain amount of times.

It's not as bad as it once was, but it still affects me.

If you want to talk about it, feel free to PM me.
