Curious here. How many of you who are pullers grew up or are growing up in what would be called fractious, dysfunctional environments? Environments that had/have high to very high levels of stress? Particularly stress that seems to not get resolved? Perhaps not even noted?
Also? Would you consider yourself an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person)? If so, what are your sensitivities, specifically? Have you read about being an HSP? If not, that's some good reading. Reading that I suspect may be highly relevant to trichotillomaniacs.
Food for thought, I hope.
