Do you eat your hair?

It sounds weird and gross but I pull out my eyelashes and eat them. I know it's bad, though. Do you do this or know anyone who does?

    • I have and I was diagnosed with OCD.

    • You deserve so much better than "existing". There's nothing new they can try for you? Do you have a support group that might have ideas for you?

      I'm so sorry you have to deal with all this :c

    • I'll have to look into online support groups or something for the time being because I think doctors just want to put people on medication and be done with it. I appreciate you kind words, thank you.

  • You may want to be carefully with that eyelashes are not that bad but look up a girl named “Ayperi Alekseeva”

    • Wtf... I don't want to eat food also now... so grossed out... I'm gonna puke...

    • It's ok. In my situation I grind the lashes between my front teeth until they disappear so I don't think I have to worry too much.

  • No.
    I prefer real food.

    • I know, it's manifested into a compulsion. I'm not happy about it.

  • No I don't eat hair. I just had a bowl of mini wheats.

  • No I don't but some girls do put their hair in their mouth when they're nervous but I've never heard of them actually eating it or the eyelashes.

  • I don't do this. There was a girl in my class who did that but she had learning difficulties and a variety of other mental health issues. She pulled her hair so much, she went bald and had to wear a wig. You have Trichophagia.

    • Yes, I do have that. The trichotillomania manifested to trichophagia years later after OCD and anxiety became worse. I wear false lashes because I have none.

  • nah i never did this

  • No I don't eat my hair, no. And no, I don't know anyone who does either. It is not normal and should stop or seek help if you can't stop on your own.

  • That's called trichotillomania. You should stop doing that because it's very unhealthy and it may lead to severe hair loss. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trichotillomania
    As for me, no I don't do that.

    • I know. My lids are bald.

    • Please, find a way to stop it.

    • I'm doing my best... my doc wants me back on OCD medication but I'm afraid to commit to it again. It's terrible on and off of it.

  • That is gross... you should try eating chocolates or real food instead of hair...

    • I have ocd and anxiety :\

    • Me too..://but I gradually stopped pulling my hair I only do it when Im very stressed but not as I used to which was pulling untill my head hurt and I don't eat it no more.

    • I'm happy for you. My lids are completely bald and have to wear falsies every single time I'm around my boyfriend because I know if I don't he WILL ask about it.
