It's been a very long time since I posted about hair pulling
It's been a very long time since I posted. I seem to have drifted inside myself for so long that I"m having trouble resurfacing. So much has changed. I want so much for life to slow down. Things are getting better though, in their own gradual, step-by-step way.
I am almost 11 days pull free which is my longest pull free streak in probably a year or more. My pulling was getting very bad again and I had really ravaged the hair on the left side of my head. Then one morning, I just decided I'd had enough. That seems to be how most of my pull-free spells seem to start. That feeling of "Enough is enough". My hair is growing in baby fine on that side. I had a bald spot nearly the size of my palm there. The other side of my head had a few quarter sized bald spots. The top was getting thin and fuzzy as well which I hated because for two years I've been able to part my hair wherever I want and I've gotten used to it. I didn't like it when it started getting bad again.
I have really grown up a lot inside the past two years. I'm trying to live more in the present and stop dissociating so much and cutting myself off from my emotions. It's not easy, but worth it.
I will keep posting about my regrowth. :-)
