I've been pulling the hair on my head for the past 5-6 years without realising it's even a disease. Recently I read about it when I was mocked by my friends for getting bald at certain areas. I forget about it when I'm busy or happy and do it all the more when I'm alone or upset or tensed about something. It goes on nonstop for hours at times resulting in thick bunch of hair on the floor and I'm unable to control it. It's like an irresistible urge to find rough hair that itches n pull it off. But along with that comes ample healthy hair. Then comes the phase of regret. I feel sorry for myself looking at older pics with beautiful hair. It's not only affecting me physically but I'm losing my confidence at work or with friends. Get easily irritated n react too often these days when slightly provoked even jokingly. I've ignored it for too long and I'm scared if I let this continue, I'll lose my sanity. Please help!
