    Hair in the mornings

    What does your hair look like first thing in the morning? I have very fine hair so after a night of lying down it looks an absolute mess in the morning - if I take a picture of my hair in the light having woken up you'd swear I was a very diffuse NW7 but then after washing it looks much better. Hate it though - never used to have to care about how receded my hair looked in the morning or whether it was a mess because I'd just keep it short and the coverage was enough.

    Hah, I thought i was alone in this observation

    My hair also look the thinnest in the morning just after I wake up, and they get thicker during the day. I don't know what's going on. Are the hairs sleeping too or sommething?

    It does nothing for my OCD I can tell you! I've been hours obsessing about it before work some days. Wish I had thicker hair even if it were receding just so it wouldn't mess up so much.

    What's OCD?

    Ah okay, I see - obsessive-compulsive disorder?

    obsessive compulsive disorder - some people have it about being tidy, fear of germs whatever...I have elements of that but now with my hair I completely obsess over it - whether it's got worse since last week/month/year and so on...taking pictures, using mirrors etc - in summary, it's hell.

    I don't think it's neccesarily related to OCD. Just normal behaviour of guys with MPB

    nah...mine is excessive. I recognise the symptoms and it gets far worse when I'm already anxious.

    I think all guys who are upset about baldness have some degree of OCD.
    It's the bolt, it's the buzz, it's the sheer f*ck offness of it all

    it is not your lack of drink, but muscles or face thats the reason. The only reason they'd want you to drink is so you focus on that and dont hit on them I don't even go to partys, at least not till I get more muscle on my arms.

    The two can sometimes go hand in hand...but when you can spend hours compulsively doing something with a fear of what might happen otherwise then its ocd.
