Try to find another dr. Trichotillomania is a real disease and part of being OCD. I notice I don't do it around other people. Just when I'm alone. I feel for the hairs that have weird textures and pull them out. Sometimes I save them to feel later. I do have bald spots. My dr. has me on Zoloft - 200 mg - but it;s not helping. I'm going to keep searching until I find a cure. I hope you keep searching too. You're not crazy. It's just an anxiety issue that has manifested itself into hair pulling. It's probably better than doing other stuff to ourselves. Good luck.
