I feel really lame typing this all out, but I'm going through some serious anxiety right now, and I don't know where else to turn, so please bear with me.
I've been experiencing pretty bad pubic hair loss over the past few weeks. I don't know if I've just gotten more aware of it all of a sudden or if it really is something that's only just started happening. I've been losing upwards of 5 pubic hairs a day, and I can easily triple that number if I run my hands through my pubic hair, as more will literally fall out with no force.
I went to the doctor yesterday, and she said it's probably down to stress, and only come back if I get bald patches. I seriously hoping it's only down to stress, and that I'm the one making it worse, but I can't calm down. I've seriously gotten myself really really worked up about this, as its frightening to see pubic hair falling out at a high rate.
Me being really worked up about this means I keep 'checking', so I keep gently running my hands through my pubic hair to 'check' if more is going to fall out. And often, one or two do each time. And if I keep doing this, it will total to more than ten throughout the day. I'm not pulling them, or using any force. I'm literally just running my hands through them, but... I guess I really can be making this worse.
I'm sorry for being super gross and creepy, but I'm really really worried and anxious. The doctor's surgery only opens on Monday, and if I make another appointment I'll have to wait another month or something for the appointment.
I can't stop panicking, and I feel so lame, but I need some advice and help. Honestly, I think I'm actually going crazy with worry, and I know this probably isn't serious, but my anxious brain isn't listening to logic and I feel like 'I can't cope with this'.
Once again, sorry for posting about something so weird and disgusting! I'm aware of how crazy this all sounds, and I would not say any of this in real life or in person. Ever. So thank the lord for the internet. What if I wake up tomorrow and they're all gone?! I hate to admit, but that's actually a genuine concern of mine.
