anxiety for college / general anxiousness Watch
around year 7-8 I began to rip out my hair from stress (accidentally at first, I used to run my hands through my hair a lot) nowadays I tend to tug on my hair when nervous, I try not to do it hard although my hair still comes out /: im not balding, but there have been periods when I have been extremely worried and my scalp bleeds,(from the pulling) which sucks.
now im starting college, (it begins on the 9th, im in sixth form, therefore im joining a sixth form college) which is quite far from my house. the stress of taking trains alone, (im the worst with directions) making new friends, and even navigating through the college is really getting to me. its gotten to the point where I have a constant eye twitch, which only happens when I get super nervous.
what can I do to prevent/reduce this anxiety? are there any over-the-counter medicines or whatever? I haven't been to the doctor about it, and im honestly to afraid to go.
sorry for any typos or any incorrect grammar.
