Pick free is Possible
Trichotillomania is a Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviour (BFRB), previously described as an impulse control disorder. BFRBs come with or without urges. Urges may be to pick skin, bite lips or cheeks, or pull out hair, eyelashes or eyebrows. Many people find such behaviour very embarrassing and feel unable to discuss it. A large percentage of the population still do not understand what BFRBs are, or what trichotillomania is; the difficulties which the conditions present or how best to help. Trichotillomania, for example, is not always an obvious disorder; it is often hidden. As a result, people with trichotillomania have to overcome numerous barriers to get treatment and support.
