three jars filled with the symptoms of -tillomania (derma- and tricho-)


is the compulsive urge to pick at scabs and skin (bumps, blemishes, etc.) which often results in bleeding. I have kept the band-aids (each one would stay on the spot for about 24 hours) after I'm done using them; there ended up being a lot.


is the compulsive urge to pull and pluck hair. Not all the hair in the jar is a result of this, but it is all my hair. 


The Tools

Trimming my nails helps impede the subconscious battle against my body and hair. I saved these clippings and painted them to make them look pretty. Ironically, painting my nails normally does not last long because I cannot stop picking.
