I’m still touching my eyebrows A LOT, but stopping just short of actually pulling. I’m finding it so hard to leave them alone completely. But 2 days without actually pulling out a hair is a pretty good start, so I’m happy.
Todays little tricks:
- Put loads of moisturiser on my eyebrows. Makes the hairs slippery so I can’t grip them with my short fingernails, and should also repair the skin damage and dryness from picking constantly.
- Keeping my hands busy. I spent a good couple of hours tidying up today, and it was so much easier not to pull than when I’m sitting at my laptop or reading.
- Food. I’ve been making a real effort to eat healthily since I got ill last month, and I’ve noticed a huge difference in my mood, which makes a difference to my Trich. Like many Trichsters, I pull more when I’m stressed out or fed up, so eating well is really helpful.
