Hello, I have been afflicted with an uncontrollable compulsion to pull out my hair since my senior year of high school. Since then I have only gotten worse, and spent my first few years of adulthood (18-21) using a cocktail of drugs and other poor choices to self-medicate. I am now almost 23 and I would like to kick this habit of pulling my hair altogether. I have been diagnosed with OCD/Trychtillomania (sp?) and am perscribed to Zoloft but it doesnt seem to make much of a difference. At the end of the day, I cant stop pulling out my hair to a degree that shocks/worries everyone around me. I am wondering if any of you have any experience or advice on this topic. I asked this same question on this forum 4 years ago, but evidence serves to tell me that I am unable to remain sober without pulling out my hair. Thanks to anyone who responds, it is immensely appreciated.
