Hi, I'm new here. I've been picking and eating things off my body all my life. I'm 42. I'm currently seeing a therapist and on Prozac. I have a severe case of psoriasis, and because of the picking, my entire body is covered with scabs. I've been single for the past 7 months, having escaped from a very abusive relationship. There's no way any sane woman would want to be anywhere near me in the condition I'm in. I'm concerned that I'll be alone forever if I can't do something about this. People have seen my scabs, and although nobody's said anything, I know that my social life has suffered because of it. I'm so depressed. The more depressed I get/the more I pick/the more depressed I get. See the cycle? I'm hoping somebody here has some answers, because so far I've found none. Thanks for reading.
