  • you probably have something like a tic disorder and have been undiagnosed for years...or high functioning autism...you could see a neurologist if it bothers you..

  • there was a gal at MHC that I worked for... she ended up pulling out all her hair when she had this psych. problem. Meds stopped the behavior, though she still has mental problems at least she has her hair back. She lost a ton of weight also. i have just researched this disorder and i want to know if this is true...i have been pulling out my eybrows and eyelashes since i was about 16 or 17 im 19 now and sometimes i wont even notice that im doing it my boyfriend will tell me to stop. is this a real possibility?

  • Yeah my daughter done this with her hair when she was stressed about school exams.......she end'd up with a 2 inch bald patch. It grew back but she still would have a tendency to do it without realising, when she's under pressure. Try not to worry also try & brake the habit..............Good luck:)
