Suicide?: "severe" is a matter of opinion. MDD and OCD are just labels docs give groups of symptoms so they can group patients. No one patient has the same MDD or OCD, and no one can specifically predict if it will end, last, or recur. Suicide, however, is severe, because it's final, and you can't take it back. So if you are seriously having thoughts about how to end your life, PLEASE call 911 or go to ER.

Yup.: you could also not be. And there are tests nowadays that will tell you even before you are supposed to get your period! So if you REALLY want to know RIGHT NOW, you can go buy one, because they really are pretty accurate, even this early. Unless you have irregular periods, then all bets are off. Basically you have to weigh the desire to know with the price of the test. You'll go to the aisle & see

Depends: Assuming we are talking about scalp hair, eyebrows or eyelashes : If we are talking about pulling the hair and NOT removing it from its roots, as a sort of self-soothing mechanism, then I'd say no. If you are actually making bald patches then I'd say yes. Assuming we are talking about other bodily hair I'd say no, as long as you are not harming the skin underneath upon removal. Be well : )
