Trichotillomania: The Eyelash Update

The Young Love’s Eyelashes, after about 3 weeks of Xbox-induced restraint.

A while back, I posted about my child’s Trichotillomania in the form of eyelash-pulling.

I’m happy to report that the young love’s eyelashes are growing in pretty well. His right eyelid looks constantly a little puffy and dry, but I don’t think he’s pulling much, and the left eye looks really good. Getting closer to that Xbox every day!

We have a deal where we inspect each other’s eyelashes. And since he had to have his eyes photographed, he insisted that I had to have mine photographed, too. Fair is fair. =)

I thought it was interesting comparing our eyes. I do think he has my same eye shape, though his eyes are an aqua-blue like Hubby’s while mine are greenish hazel, depending on the light. You’ll notice I had to soften mine a bit so as to mask some unattractive wrinkles. LOL

      Thanks, Esther! I’m so relieved and just keep crossing my fingers he won’t relapse. Visible eyelashes are indeed an achievement, as odd as that does sound. =)

        Hopefully the longer he doesn’t pull them, the easier it is for him to keep on refraining from it! Fingers crossed.

    Good to hear. Your strategy is working!
    You both have beautiful eyes and a family likeness, obviously. 🙂

      Thank you! Everyone says he looks a lot like his Daddy, but I think he favors me in the eye department. And yes, the strategy seems to be effective. Never underestimate the power of Minecraft. Lol

    Lovely eyes on the both of you. Looks like the X-Box is a good strategy!

      Aw, thanks! He’s determined to have it… I’m not overly excited, remembering my brother’s addiction to his Nintendo and how annoying that was when we were kids… but at least my purposes are being served.

        Ah yes. I am so thankful that I grew up in the pre-Nintendo age. We had “pong” LOL.

          I very faintly remember Pong from when I was really small. Amazing the advances in gaming technology. LOL

          Yes, pong was the very first game, and then they had things like Space Invaders and Pac-Man. I remember that you had to go to an arcade to play those, or we did, at any rate. Somehow I have never gotten into video games. I was interested in Myst for a while because of the beauty of it, but the puzzles were too difficult! LOL.

      Yes! It’s looking like we’ll be welcoming our new gaming system within a month or so, if this keeps up. I’m proud of him.

      That’s very true. I don’t work too hard to hide or fight wrinkles in daily life, but I’m not above a bit of photo editing. =)
