Psychiatrist: Don't yell at me - i'm not saying you're "crazy", because you are not. If you had a stomach or nerve disorder you would go to a stomach or nerve specialist. When you have a compulsive disorder like trichotillomania, you go to a compulsion specialist, a psychiatrist, who will help you figure out why you are pulling your hair out, and suggest ways to help you stop doing it. Get the help you need.
