Does anybody know how can I explain my mother that my trichotillomania isn't a problem. For me it really isn't. I pluck out eyebrows myltiple times a day and eyelashes but only once or twice. I read that it doesn't have any physical damage besides the hair maybe not growing back (but that isn't a problem for me) but it has mental damage to most people. I don't have any mental damage from it. I probably will never entirely pluck them out because I only have the urge to pluck them out with hands and you cant do much with them. I pluck them everyday in school because so people probably notice but I don't care and I'm not ashamed or anything.
But, according to my mother I act and look like a freak she said she will make go to a psychiatrist on Monday(I am terrified of ANY types of doctors). How to explain it to her???
