Is it normal to chew hair and pull out my eyebrows?


I used to do this when I was a young teen but now I'm doing it again (I'm 21 now)
I have been pulling out my eyebrow hairs when I'm bored or anxious... sometimes I don't even realise I'm doing it until I look down and see all the hair...

I have looked into it and I think I may have trichotillomania... but I only do it to my eyebrows, not the hair on my head. And I don't eat the hair. I do, however, chew my hair, I don't swallow any of it but I have been doing that since I was a young teen too..

Please can someone give me any advice?

Is It Normal?
