Sorry you’re struggling. I don’t have this but it sounds very difficult. Random thought- would it make you feel better to wear false eyelashes? I know sometimes this can be extra hard not just because you can’t stop picking and pulling but then you also have the added insecurity about appearances on top of it. Just a thought maybe it would helpat least deal with that part of it.

I was thinking about getting lash extensions if I can manage to grow my eyelashes back somehow. Then maybe I won't pull as much since it's expensive. Thank you for your suggestion. Much appreciated

Yeah I do both eyelashes and eyebrows. Do you have any tips on what helps you to stop?

I deal with trich! Mine mostly focuses on my leg hairs. In terms of advice, sadly I don’t have much as for me the best options I’ve found have been getting a professional to handle my hair removal (mum and I go to a waxing salon once a month together) so I don’t focus on it, and trying to keep my hands busy. You’re not alone!

I do. Doing things that keep my hands busy is a big help—art, gardening, cooking, etc.
