more of my questions

I have a question maybe y'all can help me out...I start with plucking my slipt ends in that went on for a long time then i stopped for a while ..what i doing as of now is rubbing my hands thru my hair on the side and listeniong to it break because i like that sound and then feeling it break and i can do it for a while and my hair is coming out and breaked up and then after that sometimes i will pick the slipt ends afterwards

my question is i know the pulling hair and things are related to OCD, but i dont take it that extreme but do yall think this is part of the OCD ?? because ir drives people crazy and they want me to stop.. but its like i like that sound and its become a habit to me where i just cant leave my hair alone when i start.... please give me yalls opions some people think its ocd

Thanks for listening, God bless

Wink Re: more of my questions

That sounds a lot like trichotillomania, the compulsive pulling out of hair. If you look at some of the other threads going on... there's one about eyelash pulling out, which is a form of the same thing... you can talk to some people who have it as well. I do have a history of self harm but trich was never anything I really went through. I do suggest talking to some other people on this board with trich. Check some of the other threads.
