I have this urge to pull my hair , sometimes I don’t even notice Im doing it . I started at a very young age maybe I was about 12 or 13 Im 19 now . I started off by pulling out one by one from the top scalp of my head . Sometimes I don’t even notice Im doing it but before I know it I can litterly pick up a hair ball from the floor from all the hair Ive pulled out . Its such a weird feeling, its like it gives me pleasure to pull out hair by hair . I exmain the hair before I pull it , from the sclap to the tip . The thicker hairs are the ones I choose , usally those come out with this little white bulb at the tip , I figured its like a piece of scalp or something . I rub the piece of hait trough my lips and face , sometimes I pull out a bunch with the bulb at the end line them up all together and when I have a decent ammount I grab them all together and rub them against my lips and face aswell . At first when I was younger it became a bad habbit but now I do it when I get anxious, angry, when I throw fits (which I have alot over absolutley nothing!) and I just start pulling out hairs like its the end of the world! I need help I dont wana do this but I cant help myself! I dont think anypne understand my frustration with this and how much it affects me .
