Before I discovered I had trichotillomania I thought something was wrong with me. Until I started researching and discovered I had a OCD for pulling my hair. I tell people I don't know the reason I don't but I do. Trichotillomania is indifferent than any disorder I've ever heard of because I don't feel depressed or like I have anxiety but I know something is bothering me I've never told anybody because I'm ashamed of it and I want to forget about it but I can't it's always at the back of my mind. Sometimes I think about it and sometimes I dont. I feel lost pulling my hair satisfies me but I regret doing because then I have to hide it. I want to stop but I can't. I tried so many times to stop but I always get sucked back in.

My hands go directly to my hands & plus my hair is falling out as well. Mine is I think comes from me being depressed or stressed out about my past, what I did or didn't do.

I think mines come from sexual abuse.
