I don't but was watching a prog about Life Coaching where one of the clients was a hair puller with pretty devastating results. She was referred away from the life coaches as they were unable to help her specific issues.

In the past I have come across people who have suffered from this, but at the time I didn't fully understand the illness. It would be interesting ti hear your thoughts and those of anyone else.


What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?
