Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
I've had dermatillomania for over four years now, and I think that recently I've gotten it more under control. I still have issues with it, but it's not as severe as it used to be. However, I haven't ever told my parents about my condition, partially because I'm afraid they'll discount it as not a real condition. Do you think that it's necessary to tell my parents if I think it's not as out of control as before? Another aspect that's difficult is the feeling that I have that I'm keeping something from my parents and that they don't really understand me. Does anyone have any advice on telling others about your condition? It would really be appreciated.
