Thank you for your reply. That did actually help A LOT! Thanks so much for sharing that with me.
I am starting to think it is more of a comfort thing. I think it does alleviate some of my anxiety especially at very stressful times. (like with my friends yesterday) So, I guess I need to find something less annoying to those around me that I can do when I get that way. I haven't figured out what yet, but I am sure I will come up with something.
Thanks so much!
First of all I am sorry that you are experiencing this problem. Also, why would your friends continue to taunt you when they know you truly do not like someone in your space? This all happened in school? I may have read it wrong.
I am not sure what your describe is OCD or a way of comforting yourself like some people with high anxiety will sit on the floor and rock back and forth for hours to help them feel less anxious. Clicking your pen maybe more of that kind of reaction.
I would really like to hear what your Pdoc or therapist has to say. Remember we can only share thoughts but are not professionals and I think you would do well with a therapist to work through your issues.
Take care and know I care.
