    Hi,

    This whole situation was all triggered by me shaving my head. I look awful, small and pathetic. I couldn't concentrate at school because I was so anxious and I was doing bad,y in my exams. Today I asked the second master if I could wear at hat as I had exams coming up and it was important in the final weeks that I was focused. She came back to me later and said it would cause all sorts of problems and am would have to deal with my anxiety a different way. Now I'm starting to have different reasons. I'm so fed up of caring about how my hair looks, I just want to focus on my studies, I don't care about looking good. It would also be a modesty thing, people would have to get to know me for my personality. Is there anything I could do to cover my head completely. I'm not Muslim, but could I wear a head scarf considering I'm doing it for similar reasons they do? I am Jewish so I could wear a skullcap but that isnt going to cover my head? I just want to forget about my hair for a while until it grows back and focus on my studies. Is there anything at can do? (I'm a boy) Would they allow girls to wear a bandana or something like that, if so, could I. So basically, would I be able to wear anything except for a hat?

    hey, you could probably get away with wearing a bandana! if not, just wear a hat anyway and see what they say, or wear a hood with a hood up? I would also recommend seeing a doctor if you're feeling really, really anxious, as they may be able to help ease the anxiety. best of luck!
