For a long time, I have been ignoring my hair pulling behavior, but a month ago it got so bad, that I had to change something and I started researching. That's when I found the Trichstop online therapy and it has already helped me so much with becoming more aware of my pulling and recognizing patterns. My current worry is whether I should open up to someone about it or not. Keeping it as my biggest secret has always kept me in my comfort zone, but also makes me cancel dates and meetings when I feel ashamed. It is such a burden to me. I have always wondered if people don't notice or don't know what to say about it. And on the one hand I want to open up to my close friends to let them know, but on the other hand I am SO SCARED of how they would react! It makes me feel so different and dysfunctional. Do you know this feeling? And have you opened up to friends? I would be thankful for your experiences and thoughts on this.
