I first suffered from trich just before I was 13. I was reading a horror book and didn't realize I was pulling my hair until I went to the bathroom and saw a giant hole on top of my head. I battled with it for four years, and then stopped completely for a while.
I've had some fallbacks a couple of years ago, and I've always managed to eventually pull myself together and resist the temptation. But I've been under a lot of stress and pressure with my work and studies this year and I've started doing it again, more and more frequently. I want to stop so badly but I just don't know how. I dread the day when I'm going to find another giant hairless spot on my scalp....

My brother has this too... He does it almost unconsciously, and I can't find a way for him to stop. I hope you find another healthy method to cope with the root of your anxiety. Stay strong!
