Read my story & help me.
I'm 14 yrs old. I'm Amber. Im starting Highschool, And ready for it. I've picked my scabs since i remember. My parents would always tell me to stop as if i could stop in the snap of my fingers. There was summers in the summer i wouldnt wear shorts. But in the 5th grade i stopped picking at my arms and there fine now a few scars. But my legs are scared and i dont know what to do. I've tried to stop and i couldn't, i don't know why i do it at all. I cut back on picking at them. But im allergic to mosquitoes bites so when i get them on my muscles the get alittle swollen, I get my mosquitoes a lot thats what pretty much all of my scars are from. I Play Soccer, Track, & Cheerleading. And in cheerleading i wear the higher socks that pass my ankles to help cover them somewhat. And i normally wear carpis and pants. But i'll wear shorts around the house or if i go out with shorts on i but a pair of Uggs on to cover the lower parts of my legs. I dont like getting asked about my legs or when people stare at them. I tell all my friends about my legs. I get a little embarrassed when guys see my legs. I've always thought that i was the only one out there how had this problem, then today i decided too look up why people pick there scabs and i found this and i decided to type this. So please comment back i need some answers..
