It's my first time here and it's also my first time telling anyone about my hair-picking. I hope that you guys could give me advice to get over this habit so that it doesn't get more serious... I am 14 years old and this has been going on for quite a while now, ever since 6th grade I've had the urge. My parents noticed around 7th grade, but didn't do anything, and now I've just learned to do it in more inconspicuous places such as arms and legs, not eyelashes like I used to. I'm terrified one of my friends will notice... I don't even know why I still do it- I know it's bad for me but I honestly can't help myself. I waste a lot of time doing this, and my grades are slipping. Please, help! I really really really don't want to spend the rest of my life in this cage.
