When Anxiety Becomes Too Much
I’m so stressed/worried/frustrated that I’m pulling my hair out!
My son suffers from trichotillomania.
What a freakin’ long word.
For those of you who don’t suffer from this, it is the compulsion to pull your hair out. Oftentimes, it is due to anxiety…and sometimes the sufferer has a history of OCD. Only 1–2% of adults and adolescents even have this condition; my son won this jackpot.
