I started this ( pulling my hair) when I was 40. Actually, this is a kind of disorder which can't stop permanently. I tried to stop it several times but started again after a small interval. I don't know what make me do this, but after pulling my hair, I feel relaxed. It is a stress relief method for me. I know, it's a little weird, especially at this age, but I'm not able to control my urge to pull my hair. Now, I'm getting treatment for this embarrassing disease from a mental health clinic in Toronto (CBT associates). I had already attended 2 sessions of trichotillomania treatment
(ACT) from my doctor in Toronto. I didn't notice any particular change in pulling the hair on my scalp, but there is a considerable decrease in the upper eyelid hair pulling. Is it a sign of recovery? Does anyone here have a similar experience? I wonder whether I could manage my stress without pulling my hair. Lol
Hoping for the best. Fingers crossed.
