Teen Can’t Stop Pulling Out Her Own Hair, Leaving Bald Patches The Size Of A Hand At A Time
Mental disorders often start with seemingly quite harmless changes in behavior and gradually develop. Sometimes, neither the person, especially a child, nor the close ones perceive it as a dangerous symptom. However, some of these disorders can greatly affect quality of life.
Megan Prosser was only 8 when she began to feel an overwhelming urge to pull out her own hair. The girl started with eyelashes. She was sure that each of them would grant her a wish. Later, she explained this by saying that it was a way of controlling her body. In an involuntary attack, she could pull out so much hair as to create a bald spot the size of a hand.
