      sleep well
      "And as the sun, that had been too afraid to show its face in this city, started to turn the black into grey, I smiled. Not out of happiness. But because I knew... that one day, I wouldn't have to do this anymore. One day, I could stop fighting. Because one day... I would win. One day, there will be no pain, no loss Because of me, because I fight. For you. One day, I will win."

      just to say your not alone, i'm a hair puller, i do it quite a lot, have done since being little. in children who grow out of it its ususally just associated with anxiety but for people who do it into adulthood its very complex as far as i understand.

      as far as i understand my self i pull my hair during flashbacks and when i dont feel really here. when i was little i used to pull my hair out because he'd grab me by it and i wanted to get rid of it. i think it can be associated with PTSD but their not necassarily linked.

      to everyone in this thread...
      you would not believe how many others out there have this disorder. Its millions, in the US alone.
      Sharing with others about it goes a loooong way. So if you can, share with friends and family.
      I don't know if you guys tried treating it, there are various treatment methods. Personally I think therapy is better than meds. Herer you can learn about various treatment methods for trichotillomania.

      As for link to PTSD, I don't think they're linked in any direct way. Wouldn't surprise me if there's some kind of co-morbidity, but I don't think there's a cause/effect link anywhere between the two.
