Hello All, I am new to this forum & like everyone else has said, so happy to have found out I am not alone. I'm 39 & a recovering Opiate addict. When I got clean I believe I traded using drugs & now pick/pluck my eyebrows. I no longer have any eyebrows left. I have to draw them on. I have a multitude of products that I use from brow powder, wax, liquid, brow fibers, etc. You name it, I've bought it to try & hide the fact that I have no eyebrows b/c I can't control myself. Anyway, I mentioned Swollen Lymph nodes, b/c I just found this site & see that a lot of people have talked about having that? I'm not sure I understand, what does picking & lymph nodes have in common? I don't think I've ever experienced swollen lymph nodes due to my tweezing excess. Any explanations would b greatly appreciated. Of course now, the anxiety is kicking in,LOL, & thinking all kinds of bad scenarios. I have noticed that my scabs have been getting so red around them, infected? I assume. I do put Neosporin on after every picking episode. I've managed to apply the 12steps of Narcotics Anonymous into my life, now I need to try & do the same with my picking. Thanks 4 reading. Good Luck 2 everyone to stop & stay stopped. That's the hard part.
