Have you shown your parents your scalp? Have they seen the proof? This lack of emotional validation might be a big trigger, and might be a possible factor creating your disorder. Just heartbreaking to read.

I showed my mom and she said it not that bad. I really don't think the issue will be taken seriously unless (God forbid) they find me dead...that's how much they're willing to dismiss it. I want to help myself but don't know how.

Ask your mom to send you to your GP, and ask her/him to send you to therapy. Did you tell your mom why you pick? Or just show her your scalp?

My family doesn't do annual check ups or I would've definitely tried to get help through that route. I would have to be nearly dying before going to the hospital would even be considered. It just feels hopeless you know? Like there's absolutely nothing I can do about this...but thanks for all of the suggestions I really appreciate it.
