Every person with a BFRB has felt this way at some point. Feeling alone is completely natural, because the truth is that most have not experienced hair pulling, skin picking, or other BFRBs. What's more, many people do not know about BFRBs, and even more do not understand them. It can be tempting to look at other people, people who can walk out of their houses in the morning without makeup or go swimming without thinking twice and think that we are completely on our own. But this isn't true. At least 2 in 50 people have BFRBs, which means that you probably know and come across people just like you every day. Likely, those people are also experiencing a silent struggle, feeling isolated, believing that someone like you doesn't exist. Even people who don't struggle with BFRBs have their own secret battles—our feelings of aloneness, ironically, are what make us all the same.
