Hair Pulling


Recommended Posts

I myself have struggled with hair pulling for many years. It’s called Trichotillomania. I pull out my eyebrows. It has been very hard to overcome. Sometimes I do really good, and other times I’m doing horrible due to lots of different reasons. So I’m curious to know, have any of you spankers every dealt with a spankee with this? Did sessions work for this type of issue? Or, If you’re a spankee, have you struggled with this and did sessions work for you?

First I have ever heard of it so I did a little research. What I read indicates the condition is similar to things like anxiety, depression, and OCD - normally treated with medication and/or therapy. While spanking might help as a deterrent for some people, it doesn't address the root cause so I can't imagine it will make it go away. The only way to know if it might be helpful for you is to give it a try.

Trichotillomania is a type of anxiety disorder that blurs with OCD. Please see a doctor about this issue. 

I’ve talked to others who did see a doctor and were put on antidepressants which made them feel groggy. Sure it’s worth a try, but I don’t think seeing a doctor will help me. I’m not depressed. I’m a very happy person.. and I consider my anxiety more on the mild side. I am very much aware that I pull, which makes this easier to overcome. I feel I just need some extra discipline to help with that, which is why I asked in the first place whether others have had success. I know a guy who incorporates habit reversal training into his disciplinary sessions. Worth a shot in my opinion.

Have you tried CBT? It's a behavior based therapy.

I had this bad when I was a kid. Used to have bald spots on my head.... It was very embarrassing. I would do it without even thinking usually when I was stressed. Seemed to have gone away with age for me, though I keep my hair short now. Don’t think a spanking can help with this.

Antidepressants do not make everyone feel groggy. I firmly believe that spanking cannot help anxiety-based behaviors, and I find it interesting that you seem to be so willing to submit to a spanking, and so unwilling to try to seek a professional's help. Everything is not a one-size-fits-all situation. Spanking may work for you, but so could therapy. Don't rule something out altogether based on someone else's situation.

There are tons of anti depressants on the market. You try them until you find the one that works for you. Some will make you groggy and some won't. As P said, they are used for many reasons...not just depression. I take one as a migraine preventative and another one for stress and itching. I have also used one for nicotine cessation.

My oldest son has something like this. He pulls out his eye lashes when he gets stressed. I can always tell when it's going on because I find them on the bathroom counter.

Thank you for the input.

I simply was repeating what others told me about their experience taking antidepressants. It is something I may consider if all else fails. I am very much willing to seek professional help. I simply just wanted to see if anyone has had success with this disorder with sessions.

Has your son figured out ways to stop? Or something that has helped? Just looking for ideas.
