bfrber3 karma

Hi! I found out last year that hair pulling is an actual thing and has a name (god bless Google). I went to my doctor but they had never heard of it and suggested that I try an anti-depressant. I'm not depressed though so I didn't take it (OK, i get sad sometimes, but I don't only pull when I'm sad - it happens across so many situations and sometimes I don't even realise I'm doing it). Why don't doctors seem to know about this? Or why don't they understand more about it?
