WHAT IS TRICHOTILLOMANIA?
It's an OCD oriented disorder that can affect children and grown ups. Not so many people are familiar with it and not many seek treatment for it. Another similar disorder is Dermatillomania, where people pick their own skin, sometimes till they bleed or more. Anyhow, these disorders aren't easy to cure or just "stop doing" and they are self-destructive for the person doing them. So if you know someone that has, or you suspect that he/she has those disorders, try not to give him/her a hard time at school or at work, or wherever. They may not know exactly what is wrong with them, they probably don't know that they have a mental disorder, they feel like freaks and you are not helping!
