Thought I was doing pretty well with not picking at my face, but last night had a pretty bad episode and then had a panic attack afterwards. Feel bad because I kept my mom up most of the night with my terrible anxiety. Just picked at my face again a few minutes ago and am feeling really annoyed and ashamed with myself. I'm so tired of my face and lips hurting all the time because I've picked and dug so much into it. I'm so tired of just dreading looking in the mirror. I start seeing a new therapist tomorrow so hopefully I will be able to figure out some coping techniques with her help. I also need to go back to my regular doctor. The pimple-like rash all along my jawline that has been around for the last six or more months is not going away, and after extensive research I'm afraid it may be malassezia folliculitis. I feel like if there were less enflamed whiteheads and pimples on my face I would be less likely to try and rid myself of them. I don't know. I'm really just at my wits end. My younger sister is moving out today to her own apartment with her friend and I am so jealous because I feel like I will never be comfortable enough around anyone to move out. I'm so depressed!!! Agh!
