I started looking up information because my behavior has gotten more peculiar lately. I know that I have always had anxiety issues, but recently I have gotten to where I can’t remember things. Nursing school was brutally hard and I could not remember what I had read the night before and tests were excruciating.
So, after careful research via google, I have read that I could possibly have mental disorder. Trichotillomania is a disorder that involves recurrent, irresistible urge to pull out body hair (Mental Health America, 2019). I have always had body issues but I do not feel like this started until after high school. I do not really want to go into detail because I am so embarrassed about it, but I think it is important to share with you.
Mental disorders, anxiety, depression seem to all coexist as one. I wish I could tell you that the treatment is easy but according to Mental Health America, therapy and medications are the only way to control the urges. I really do not want to go to therapy, so I will type out my problems and hope that God can help me with self-control.
If anyone has insight or helpful tips, please share with me.
