It's so great to get confirmation that BFRBs are not the result of stress. I am one of the happiest, most relaxed and content people, but have struggled with trich since 2nd grade. It's not at all linked to anxiety for me, and it gets tiring to hear that it's related from people who don't know anything about it. If anything, I'm learning that I probably have ADD (I'm a high-functioning adult, and it's a well managed inattentive version) and would love to learn more about the link between BFRBs and ADD. My child's pediatrician says that anecdotally, she sees these traits shared very often. I think it must be the hit of adrenaline or dopamine I get from pulling an eyelash.
