[Insert story title]

Neurotic might be one way to describe Missy; in junior high she started pulling out her eyelashes, followed by her eyebrows.  Now she wears black eyeliner, so from a distance, it’s not too noticeable.  We lived together a couple years back now, when she was in medical school and I was in law school, and I noticed she’d still pick at them when we studied. It was really sad.  I never wanted to mention it though, since I’m sure she’d heard enough about it.  She’d been picking at them for almost ten years at that point.
