Your stepfather's being an a**. I mean no offence to you, but he is.
Not understanding Trich is one thing, but saying that it's all made up is wrong. Just because he doesn't understand, doesn't have to mean that it does not exist. Ask him to look it up.
He shouldn't be taking photos of your damage. Says a lot about him.
Let him know that you don't want him to take photos of you without your consent. It certainly is not a joke.

I'm glad you have talked about it. This is a place for all those who go through it or have gone through it. You can share whatever it is that you're going through here. I hope this helps.

Take care!
