Taking the First Step
Posted May 11th, 2012 by ladykatie
I had such anxienty even deciding if I wanted to join this site and officially admit to myself and all others on here that I have reached the breaking point. I am resigned to the fact that I can not conquer my self-destruction skin picking habit with only will power. As I type this and put it out there for the world to read, I have a lessening of anxiety, which surely is a cause of my obsessive picking. This is my first step toward healing, and I hope with the help of others who suffer from this same disorder, I can become slowly better, or at least understand and perhaps control my behavior more. It is so encouraging and hopeful to find this forum. My goal, like everyone else, is to go days without picking and see visible progress. I am committing to posting, openly and honestly, daily for the next week and maybe longer; to get some insight into how I act and behave when it comes to this picking and be held accountable, knowing progress is being followed by this site. Feel free to join, too, and let me know how you do each day so we can encourage each other. We can have hope and healing together, I think and fight this alone!
