I don't mean us in particular here on the forum, but, after coming here and realizing we really are higher in number and not as alone as we thought, then I wonder if any of us have met anyone else in our lives who is also a picker. I never have. And I live in Boston, we have thousands of people, yet never in work or school have I met one or seen one (unless they do it to other parts of their body besides their face). I'd think we'd all sort of "recognize" another "familiar" kindred spirit if we met in person. Yet for how "common" this supposedly is, in the real world off the forum boards it still feels pretty darned lonely. Anyone else met or know of or seen another of us in real life? It's comforting to find support on the forum but it'd also be nice to know people for real exist.
