I have recently noticed that sometimes I seem to pull strands of my hair out when I'm anxious. I know that there is a condition that causes it, and that there are people out their that are worse than I am with it, but I am mainly asking for advice on how to stop it before it gets even worse? I'm worried that the longer I take to deal with it the harder it'll be for me to stop doing it. Another problem is that I also bit the inside of my mouth, and I bit it till it bleeds and sometimes it can be quite bad, my mum is always afraid that I'll end up with an infection, so if anyone has any advice on that as well please feel free to comment, but I have a suspicion that the biting will be harder because of the shear number of years that it's been going on.
I am still not diagnosed with OCD as I haven't been to my doctor yet, and am still debating whether it's worth trying to get a diagnosis. I also feel that some of my anxieties feel outside of OCD and into more generalised anxiety, would people feel that it's possible to have both OCD and a general anxiety disorder?
Thank you for any response to this post,
