I think I have OCD

Hey! I would like to talk about what’s happening to me in these days. I’ve been in therapy since 6 years, then next week I told to my therapist that I engage in trichotillomania. She told me that this is not ocd, but just hyperactivity. After this I felt like she lied to me for this 6 years about my mental health, then in my mind I’ve started to see the image of my brain broken. Every day I think about this image and I feel like that I can’t think normally anymore because this image stop my consciousness flow. Is this a form of OCD?

She could be wrong. I don't know if it's a form of OCD. Google it. But any therapist can be wrong about something. If you doubt, go get a second opinion. Sounds like you need a distraction to begin to stop the trichotillomania. The problem is the urges. I'm not sure how you can stop the urges without medicine and more appropriate talk therapy.

I would like to talk with another therapist, but I really hope I don’t need medicine. I feel like I can’t control my thoughts anymore.

That's where medicine can help. It can crush your anxiety and then help you get through the appropriate therapy to deal with your thoughts. Doesn't necessarily mean it's a daily medicine.
