Trichotillomania

From the article Are You Normal Or Nuts, Reader's Digest Aug 07:
Why do I twirl my hair with one finger whenever I read? I never do this except when I'm reading.
Just be glad you don't have trichotillomania, the impulse to pull out your hair in clumps - from your head, eyebrows and other fuzzy body parts. Your behaviour is just a quirk, not harmful and probably quite helpful. Chances are you developed your bookish hair twirling as a body language clue to people around you. What does your finger in your locks say? It says, "Leave me alone! I'm reading."
What are they saying? That trichotillomaniacs are NUTS? Cuckoo?

haha, I think I need go find a support group.

Lucky I'm not a fuzzy person. Imagine if got janggut, sure have a field day trichotillomania-ing.

Actually in secondary school I used to pull eyebrows, then had to stop cos not much left. Now smarter, head got more hair, won't run out.

Well lets hope it doesn't run out.

Otherwise that would be one heck of a holey exposed scalp. Yes, I know besides pulling you also dig!
