Anxiety Disorders/fidgeting

Question
I am a chronic picker, my counselor recommended fidget toys and gave me stress balls but I do not like them. Where can I find better toys

Answer
Hello Des,

This seems to fall under the heading of compulsive behaviour. In that case I suggest you have a look at the following article:

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Nutrition
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/obsessive-compulsive-disorder-and-nutrition/

Let us know how you are getting on?

Please discuss this with your doctor if you wish.
