Hair touching.

Listen I’ve never thought of myself as having anxiety. But all the research I’ve done regarding my problem tells me it’s that.
I LOVE to touch my hair, I love the feeling of the different strands, especially the thick and curly ones. I don’t even think I want to stop but I want other people’s experiences if they’ve ever felt this way.
like anytime my hair is down I just want to touch it... but I don’t want to be that girl always “playing” with her hair.

Trying to figure out where the anxiety issues are with this? Is it some form of OCD? I have heard of people playing with their hair when anxious. But from your words that is not what you are doing. You just like the touch of the hair. The feel of it. Maybe that brings you comfort? And it might be the comfort you are wanting. Is the only thing I can think of.
