Picking hairs/lint from fresh wounds. Anyone else!?

I'm new here. I've been searching online for years to see if anyone like me exists and I'm yet to find them!! As far back as I can remember, I've been obsessed with pulling stuff out of any cuts or wounds I've had, or anyone else's that would let me get my hands on theirs. If I saw/see a hair(lint) in a cut, nothing else matters until I remove it.. I could spend hours a day picking at it, removing every last hair I can out of it and I'll do that every day until it dries up, then it's done. If I don't have any cuts, I spend my days day dreaming about some of the "good ones" I've had and I think about picking them and how it felt. I love the pleasure pain of pulling the fluff out of the wounds, I love the pull and feeling of resistance and sometimes even the sound. I'm obsessed!!! The more sensitive the area the better.. a chapped lip cut with hairs dried in to it, plucking the lint out is one of my "banked favs". Am I alone here!? I have yet to meet one person that has this shared obsession
