What the community says about Doesn't It Hurt?: Confessions of Compulsive Hair Pullers
- "This fits to some extent as a memoir about OCD, but it should be noted that it isn't an exhaustive memoir from any one person suffering from the disorder. Instead it's a collection of 15 shorter essays written by people who specifically suffer from trichotillomania, but that is itself often associated with OCD. Interesting read to be sure."
- "This book was so interesting. It's not a subject or book I would automatically think of when searching for a memoir, but I'm glad I did. The stories were very raw and well written and shed light on to something that many people have no idea about. I'm very glad I read this book. "
- "Trichotillomania is a very misunderstood disorder and this collection of essays by sufferers is a great insight. But I'm not sure if it's just women's stories, as all people can be afflicted by this. I know, I have it, too. So I'm not sure if it's the best memoir about womens issues but it's a good novel for it's topic. "
