I need help! New to site
Posted May 30th, 2011 by Tweezert
I am a 28 year old female and my life is revolves around my picking. I'm married with one son and have a very good family. As I'm writing this I can't stop crying because I know I have a problem but don't know what to do. I pluck my eyebrows but I don't pluck them all off. Under my eyebrows where the hairs are trying grow back I will push (like trying to pop a zit) or dig to get the hairs out. Most haven't even broke through the skin yet but I can see them. I will spend hours digging and pushing until I get the hair. If it starts bleeding I will wipe it off and keep going. I have scars and sores that are horrible. I try using concelear to cover it up but most times it doesn't help. I have spent all of the beautiful memorial day weekend hid in my house because my eyes are swollen with huge painful sores and yet I just spent 3 hours picking the scabs and picking at new hairs I see. My husband doesn't understand it and I don't either my family looks at me like I'm a freak and I feel that way to. I have never sought help for this but really need to talk to someone who understands. With all this being said the thought of giving up my tweezers makes me sick to my stomach! Why do I keep doing this to myself! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
