Is there an app for this yet?

hey guys I'm registering at a point of a crossroads in my life.

Originally I would've taken this opportunity to use THESE VERY GODDAMN FINGERS THAT I AM USING TO TYPE to destructively pick hairs out of my beard, limbs, eyebrows, eyelashes, legs, arms, chest/torso, below that.... as much as I'm trying to avoid it even the hair on the top of my head isn't all that safe.


I'm starting a business.

I'm doing it. And I'm working haaaaaaaaaard. But I'm spending a lot of time thinking extremely critically, which for me can be a trigger. Because of self-worth related issues and stuff. I'm not going to get into it.

But I would REALLY benefit from an app hooked into the webcam on my MacBook that is programmed to watch specifically for hand-to-face action.

I dropped out of school for this and by the time I was able to go back it took me TWO YEARS to finish what should've been like, a semester's worth of material. I don't know what happened to me.

It doesn't matter.

I'm hungry. I'm raring to go. I'm going to do it. But I need some legitimate help. I have the longest beard I've had in years and I don't want to lose it now.

Does anybody know anything?

Are there are maverick computer programmers over here willing to partner with a maverick trich patient to actually product something worth making? This conventional community-based AA-style of treatment is not working for me. Nothing is working for me. What I want is something I can actually USE to my advantage.

I've spent hundreds of dollars on gloves, rings, spinners, therapy, creams, oils, shampoos, barbershops, and even more things that I don't have time to talk about.

Somebody help me out. I'm going back to work.

Hi there. There are 2 apps you may find helpful. Here are links to articles about them. It's not exactly what you are describing, but it follows the same principle I believe:

Hope this hels!
