Emily's parents were shocked to discover what their daughter was doing to herself. At only 9 years old, she began pulling out entire sections of her own hair.

"I remember just fidgeting with my hair, you know? Trying to braid it a little. ... And then I pulled out a hair," she told ABC News. To prevent her from pulling her hair, Emily's parents shaved her head. (Courtesy of the Simmons Family)
