So I finally confessed up to my obsession with pulling apart my split ends, along with all the other things I'm really peculiar about & he said I have trich & OCD tendencies linked to my depression & anxiety.

Does anyone else suffer or has suffered in the past & overcome it?

Hi, i suffer with anxiety and depression too. I used to run my fingers through my hair (pulling out lots in the process) when i was very very stressed. Also, after the birth of my two children i think i had baby blues and had a real problem with washing hands and cleaning the baby bottles. (i believe to do with ocd). Things have got better as i am on Citalipram 30mg now. I have found it helps me cope a lot better with stress etc. Just thought i'd msg you. Hope your doing ok, you are not alone in suffering with anxiety and drepression!! Regards,
