Hi I'm new here. I'm not used to talking openly about trich

hi I'm new here. I'm not used to talking openly about trich. every time i mention it to someone, they dont know what it is, and then i explain it and they react as if they are disgusted...and then i end up getting all these questions and having to explain and ugh its hard to explain bc i dont want to speak about it to someone who doesnt understand. I had a doctors appointment today bc i have severe upper back & shoulder pain bc of pulling my hair. and the doctor made me explain trichotillomania to him...and he still didnt get it

Really? http://www.bfrb.org/, here is a great resource and provider guide.
