View Full Version : I cannot figure out what I have?

11-02-2016, 08:10 PM
I am currently 18 years old and ever since sophomore year when my friend got lice, I have been scratching my head so badly, creating scars and scabs that I cannot stop picking off. I constantly check my brush and go through every strand that I think may look weird. I have now named every brush in my house with a specific person's hairbrush so we do not use each others. If I find out or see someone using my brush, I freak out and scrub and clean the entire thing. I know that the internet is not always right, but it always leads me to OCD. I pick my scabs and rip open new ones and I cannot stop. I also sometimes have thoughts I wish I didn't, and I worry about a lot. Even though my numerous responsibilities I have, I ignore them. If you have any ideas on what could help or maybe what I have, please let me know.

This sounds like OCD, but it's hard to be sure without knowing what other thoughts you have. Can you elaborate a bit?
