The urge to pull my lashes and brows just hasn't been here these past few days. So that hasn't been a challenge so far. BUT... the mindless pulling from my scalp has been a challenge.
I haven't pulled yet, but it hasn't been easy. And I wouldn't even say I've had the "urge" to pull from my scalp... it's not like I even get urges there. It's just what I do. It's so thoughtless. Like it gives me something to kill time with or something. Kids are taking forever to get their shoes on- pull a hair. Light just turned red at the intersection- pull a hair. Hubby is fast-forwarding through commercials- pull a hair. Thinking about what I'll type in my next sentence- pull a hair. It's just what I do. No strong urge. No specific hair screaming at me to be pulled. No tormenting going on in my brain. I just do it whenever- not matter the feeling.
So to avoid that pulling, I haven't even allowed myself to touch my hair. A simple touch leads to searching for off hairs. Maybe I'll just give it a tug... but it doesn't take much of a tug to lose a weak hair. And before I know it I've unintentionally pulled a hair. So I'm keeping my hands down cause just a touch would be too much.
