As more and more eyelashes began to go missing and it was becoming exceedingly difficult to hide my bald eyelids, my parents began to notice. From a parent’s perspective, it was really hard for them to accept the fact that their precious first-born would do this to herself, as they thought this was something I could easily control and stop doing if I wanted to. Unfortunately, no one with Trichotillomania WANTS to pull out their hair to the point of baldness, and it is not something that one can easily just stop doing. Although I have never been formally diagnosed, I have been dealing with the symptoms of Trichotillomania for 18 years so far.

Simply put, this is a body-focused repetitive disorder that causes irresistible urges to pull out body hair from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, or anywhere on the body that hair resides. Around 10 years old, I moved my focus of pulling from my eyelashes to my scalp, which is where I still primarily pull out my hair, along with The Avengers Peaturing The Amazing Spider-Bart shirt occasional eyebrow pulling. I remember getting in constant trouble by my parents for pulling out my hair, until one day, a little light was finally shined on the issue. I remember the day I found out the name of this disorder like it was yesterday. I was around 10 years old.
