Hi Jordy, I also recently read your post about eyelash pulling. I have been pulling since the 7th grade and am now a senior in college. Needless to say, I have been pulling for a long time. Your post really gave me confidence that my eyelashes will grow back. Recently they have taken a little while to grow back so I started to think that maybe I ruined it and thats it for having eyelashes. However, your post really makes me feel a lot more confident that they will definitely grow back. Is there anything you did to speed up the growing process? or anything that helped you to not pick. I read up on some post and now I keep a hair tie on my arm so that I can play with that instead of picking. Any other suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Jordy, my name is Erin and I'm 20 years old and I read your post that you pull out your eyelashes. I have been pulling at my eyelashes and eyebrows for 7 years now and I finally se a therapist. I've been trying to stop for years and am finally sick of hiding my secret to my friends and boyfriends and i'm stopping. However I understand your obession with your eyelashes and I also do it when I'm stressed out or nervous or even just bored. You said you've stopped pulling at the top ones and now are working on not pulling on the bottoms, how did you control yourself? I would love to talk to you about this and see how you got through it. I think it would realy help to finally talk to someone else with the same condition.
