So... I posted here some months ago that I found out I'm manic. I've got this mania called "trichotillomania" that makes me urge to pull out my hair and eat it. Yeah, you got it right, you don't need glasses.. This includes biting off my arm+leg hair and pulling out head-hair, armpit hair and even friggin' pubic hair.
"lol why tell parents they dont hav to know they will just worry too much" -cool_boi98
Imagine how my arms look. When I was in sixth-grade I pulled out so much hair that I got a blank spot on my head. That looked pretty funny. And embarrassing. And pretty effed up.
This doesn't just affect my social life. You know how hair is indigestible? It can clog up the stomach and this can lead to serious constipation that can lead to serious death, worst case. Operating to get it away is an alternative.
"So why don't you just stop? That can't be hard, just tell yourself to stop, derp." -random, judgmental person
I can't. I tell myself all the time to stop but I end up doing it without knowing what I'm doing until after the action. I don't have the self control.
So, as you can see, this is kinda hard for me to deal with. I'm gonna tell my dad somehow, someday. My dad is a very compassionate man and he is also a doctor. He doesn't flame his patients for being sick, so he won't flame me for being sick (in the head) either.
Any tips on how to say/what to do? You are the only community I would ask as you accept people for who they are. That is what makes ADISC good.
Accepting any help!
