Hi, my names Kellie. I haven't been part of any forums before. I have been pulling my hair since I was probably 14 and I'm 24 nearly 25 now. I don't really remember how or why I started pulling my hair, I use to bite my nails a lot and I think I stopped biting my nails and started playing with my hair and eventually pulling it that's my theory but I can't say for definite. I have tried everything I can think of to stop from stress balls, figit toys, plasters on my fingers, sitting on my hands when I want to pull. Nothing seems to have worked so far and I just feel like it's getting worse not better. I haven't gone bold yet but I can say there are really bad areas somewhere on my head and I have a lot of random short bits everywhere. Was just wondering if anyone that's managed to stop has any tips help or anything they've done that's helped them?
