CraniumToad4 karma

Hi, I'm 31 years old now and have been hair pulling since I was around 9 years old. My parents did not take me for any sort of mental health care when I was a child due to a combination of poverty and religious fundamentalist. When i was 25 or so I finally started getting control of my own life, but therapeutic and medicinal approaches to my hair pulling have not been effective. I'll be honest...I hate myself and am full of rage against my parents for not helping me and against myself for being unable to control it which leads into a deep spiral of helplessness, despair, and anguish. Yes i go to therapy, but it isn't all that helpful. It just feels too late. What should I tell myself?
