plucking the hair..
Can anyone tell me if this is a OCD related behaviour.
My sister suffers from depression, consistently. When stress piles up on her, and things are chaotic, she will gather immense pleasure and comfort from tweezing the stuble from her legs. Its only the stuble type that comes from regrowth from waxing or shaving, that she will pull, her legs are covered in tiny scabs from doing this.
She will try and motivate herself with a to do list in the evening for the next day, food, bills, dog food, etc.
She'll say, to hect with that, comes home, sets the scene, cup of tea, smokes, warm room, good chair, and she will pluck away.
She is only starting to see this as a problem, cause she has started on the private areas as well.
Not sounding too daft, is this a problem. She derives so much enjoyment, from this.
In the darkest hour the soul is replenished and given strength to continue and endure.
