I have been in telephone contact with a man for 7 months after meeting on Facebook. He is now talking about coming to meet me but although he knows I have mh problems, he doesn't know I have trichotillomania. I'm frightened he won't understand and will end it. How do I tell him without putting him off or thinking I'm a complete disaster area and should be avoided?

Wish me luck. I have decided to tell him today. I'm extremely agitated and scared and I really hope he understands. I think telling him over the phone now will be a lot better than meeting him and then taking off my bandanna. I'll let you know how it went

Well I did it and he was ok about it. For me it was agonising, he actually phoned me from his work because he was worried. He doesn't seem to care which seems to be good. If he has any questions I'll answer as best I can and steer him in this direction so he can find out more.

Celebrate well done!!! That is fantastic.

In my experience it matters more to us than our partners.

Love and pull freedom
