31-yr-old looking for accountability/support buddy

I just came across this website & forum and feel a sense of hope. I am looking to connect with someone else who has mild to moderate skin picking. It would be nice to have someone to text or email when I’m feeling shame or guilt after picking or needing support from someone who gets it. 

I am in intense therapy currently for anxiety + meds, but it would be great to connect with someone dealing skin picking. Thank you.

If you’re still looking for someone to talk to and have accountability, we can talk. We’re similar ages and I have suffered from skin picking almost my entire life. I don’t have anyone to talk to about it so it would be nice to have someone to talk to who understands.

Please! I’m 28 and have been picking since like 19 probably. Meds have helped since it is an OCD/ anxiety thing but I still pick my nipples incessantly and they are so gross it makes me want to die. I would love to have an accountability partner but am too embarrassed to ask my friends/ bf.

I would love to work with you. I am 29 and I have been struggling with this for as long as I remember. I pick on face, arms, chest and back.

I would love to have an accountability partner, someone who can relate. I don't know if there is a way to send you a private message. I don't necessarily what to leave my contact here for everyone to see.

Let me know if you are still looking for someone to work with you.

Hi Lila - you can also email me at


Maybe all 3 of us could get an email chain started and work together? The more the merrier!

Let me know both of your thoughts :-)

Hi there, 

I saw this initial post and responses were from awhile ago but you just posted last week so I hope you still are looking for accountability support because I need the same thing. I’m a 32 year old female who has struggled with skin picking my entire life and it has only gotten progressively worse the older I get. Within the last year, I get staph infections nearly every time I pick and it can be very scary. I would love to connect with you so we can help each other and so I can possibly provide you with some great resources that have helped me. If you’re interested in connecting please let me know and we can exchange phone numbers or email if you’re more comfortable with email but I think phones would be great as I don’t check my emails often and if we could text or call each other in times of desperation, it would be a quicker more efficient way of communicating.   

Hope to hear from you!
