Pulling Out My Eyelashes

12/29/2010

Eyelashes

I have been pulling out all the eyelashes on my top lids since I was twelve years old, ten years ago.  I usually wear eyeliner to cover up the fact that they are bald.  I have been struggling to let my top eyelashes grow in since I started and only succeeded once this past spring.  It took months for them to grow in completely across both lids, they never looked as they did before I started the compulsion, and this fall I pulled most of the hairs out again.  It is a type of trichotillomania that is hard to face every time I look in the mirror.
