Are you confused about why you do this?
Are you frustrated because you just can’t seem to control yourself?
Are you fed up and know that you should be doing something to stop, but you just don’t know what to do?
Are you aware that you can’t ‘just stop’?
You are not alone. You have what is known as eyelash trichotillomania, a fancy word for eyelash pulling, and it is a very real medical condition. You aren’t crazy, and you aren’t to be blamed. And will power is not the answer.
I know, that news is shocking and worrying, and hard to believe. But eyelash and eyebrow pulling is more common than you think. No one is sure why the condition exists, but it CAN BE TREATED. I know because I stopped pulling my eyelashes and eyebrows out. And I did so without expensive medication or therapy.
