Yesterday I booked an appointment to discuss fitting an interlace to help recover. This filled me with excitement and I decided to tell my boyfriend about the condition. He knew I had hair loss as I wear clip in extensions but he didn’t know why. He is trying to be supportive but he doesn’t understand and kept asking questions like ‘why do you do it’ ‘ how bad is it’ ‘ why not just stop’. Which resulted in my feeling judged and scared. I told him how it made me feel and he held me and said he just doesn’t understand. I’ve advised he read up but I’m wondering if there is anything else I can say to him to help him help me?
He’s the first person I’ve told. Not even my parents know
