02:01 pm - I can hear you calling...
Hi,

I'm Ashlee. 21. From Western Australia.
I suffer an obsessive compulsive disorder called, "Trichotillomania"...

No doctor has looked at it, I just know I have the condition. I've had since year 9 in high school, over the last few years, it has become worse.
Lately, it's been getting better. I have been scratching less. Not to the point when I bleed..it never gets that bad.

I do it when I'm stressed, bored or suffering anxiety, I tend to scratch at this spot under my hair line. I can cover it up with my long hair.
Unfortunately, I tend to worry a lot when I'm stressed which further leads me to doing it.

There is no cure. Other then for me to notice when I am doing it and make myself not too.
I told my partner to tell me to stop scratching when he sees me do it and he does a good job at it. I don't know how he puts up with it. :\


xx.
