Confronting my oldest demon
I’m nearly 27 and I’ve been pulling my hair out since I was around 12/13
I stated going grey when I was 22 and now I’m faced with the damage I caused to myself although that doesn’t stop me
I use hair pulling as a stress relief and a reward. I work hard at my job and sit twiddling my hair at my desk but catch myself when I look down and see strands of hair on my lap
My favourite hairs are the ones with grey roots, they also make me feel shame
I’m sick of using this stupid habit as a coping mechanism but the thought of seeing a GP makes me furious, I think that might be the Trich talking.
I don’t know where to start, all I know is that I don’t want to be friends with Trich anymore
