I Feel like my parents will Feel ashamed and I do it when ever I Feel stressed, which is a lot.. ive pulled out so much I have to wear a wig, and I've had It pulled off before.. I Feel like I'm weird and different from everyone else..
Hi Inn, as i suggested, what your doing is a conscious act and your doing it for a reason. Try to think of why, you dont like your hair, you like the feeling of pain, your trying to hurt yourself, you have low self esteem?
It falls under the OCD spectrum disorder and yes, you have developed this habit and you are doing it under times of stress. And since it is a habit, you are doing it unconsciously. I know you don't want to talk to your parents but I think you are going to have to. Trust me, no parent wants to see their child suffer and if you are wearing a wig then the habit has gotten out of hand, your self-esteem is suffering, and your anxiety is going unchecked. So please talk to your parents. It doesn't mean you are crazy or weird because if you are then so are the rest of us and I don't consider myself crazy or weird. You have a disorder not unlike say diabetes for instance where you don't have enough neurotransmitters in your brain for you to handle situations like this. So please talk to your parents about seeing a psychologist so that you can get the help you need and deserve. Take care.
