I bite my lips, tonuge, and inside of my mouth till they are bloody everyday. No matter how hard I try I can't stop. I'm worried I'm making myself predisposed to oral cancer. I don't know if I have OCD, but I know I can't stop.
Hi there. You need to see a psychologist to get a diagnosis. Everything you have said are things people do to alleviate stress and most of the time they do not realize they are doing it. It becomes a habit actually. Good news for you is that habits can be broken with the right help. So please consult a psychologist that teaches CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy). Is that possible for you?
