We know what you mean about
how bad anxiety makes one feel...
It sounds like you would do good to have a hobby or something that would keep your hands busy when you're having a tendency to pull at your hair. I used to make myself a cardboard weaving board (take some stiff cardboard and cut corresponding slots on opposite ends of each other) and just take some cheap yarn and do simple weaving, over and over. I did it just to keep my hands and mind busy. It wasn't really to amke anything. Just a mindless repetition...have you talked to your doc about
anxiety and your hair pulling compulsion?
