scar picker/eater. HELP ME!
Posted June 9th, 2012 by AllScars
I'm a married 33yr-old mom. I constantly picking my arms & upper thighs. I do so consciously, but I can't stop it. I eat my scabs (mostly the dry skin). I have done this for about 5 yrs. I feel like a cannibal, not to mention a disfigured freak. I am beautiful woman, but due to my picking, I cannot even wear tanktops anymore. If I wear a short-sleeve shirt, people stare. Why do I do this picking/eating? I have had no major life traumas, just anxiety and OCD(which I take Cymbalta for). Please give me some advice on how to stop my self-destruction. I want to feel pretty again. Sometimes I hate to be around other people, because I feel like a freak . I need my life back and my husband needs his wife back.
