does anyone else do this? its pretty compulsive and kind of takes my mind off my anxiety. im worried it'll result in hair loss if i do it too much.

yes, there are a lot of people around the world who do the same. let me make something clear, this is not okay. if something makes you harm yourself, it's not worth holding on to. plucking your hair takes away the bouts of anxiety from you momentarily. but you have to think about the long term effects. get some help asap! you have a long life ahead of you :*

i second this. you should really see someone about the hair pulling if you're not already.
