I have a very bad anxiety disorder. I have had the axiety under control or a while now but I also suffer from trichiltillomania, which is a symptom of it. I have found it really hard to kick the picking. I have tried putting my hair up all day but at some point I take it down just to do it. When I watch tv, I sit and do it out of boredom, when I am in bed I do it. I really hate that I do this, it has really cause me some pain. I cannot wear my hair down, I have to wear it up at al times or I feel like someone is gonna see my bald spots. I have to make sure when I put my hair up I put it up right so that hair is covering it and that you cannot see anything through it. I am so ashamed of it. I have really long hair, its beautiflul to everyone but I cannot see it because I know I have bald spots. There are only a few people who know I do it, I do not tell anyone. For the last three days I have been putting it up in a sock bun in hopes that I will not pick, It has worked so far but I know that I will start back up soon.. I want to stop but something in my brain will not let me.. I have deen a doc but they say there is not any cures, its a syptom and has to be dealt with in couseling.. Been there done that, did not work.. Ugh, Ok I have said enough.. Please let me know if any of you suffer so I can see if there is something I can do to help my situation.. Thanks!
