Pulling more than ever

Posted: June 30, 2016 in Musings

I was not sure how things would be after I got my extensions out.

My pulling decreased with the extensions because when my hand went up to pull and I would grab one of the extension hairs and tug it did not tug at my scalp, which is a big part of the feeling for me, so not having that sensation was a big deterrent. I thought that maybe that decrease would continue.

But, now that I have them out I have gone back to pulling just as much as I did before, if not more. I have some reasons, though.

My daughter is moving to Kansas City, Missouri in a few weeks. That is a two-day drive from here. She’s only 12, so I am having a hard time with the fact that I am not going to be able to hold her when she’s upset or be there when she gets home from school. It’s a long story, but her dad and his wife have been pretty set on going there for a few years now, I just thought they’d wait until she got a bit older. Guess not.

Also, I found out today that I have to have surgery. I have an IUD, which is an insert for birth control. Long story short, it moved up to where it is not supposed to be and the only way to get it out is through surgical removal. Ladies, let me give you some advice: never get one of those. It is not worth it. The doctor had to poke and probe around for quite awhile yesterday trying to find the damn thing and it hurt to the point that I was in tears.

Needless to say my pulling is off the charts.

But, as they say, this too shall pass.

  1. I’m so sorry you’re struggling. I can’t imagine my 11 year old moving away!!! That would kill me. I’m praying for wisdom and strength for you as you move forward. Yesterday is gone, and right now has never happened before. Good luck dealing with all of this. ((Hugs))
