Any teens here?

Hey, my name's Izzy. I'm 15, and have been picking and pulling since I was about 5 or 6. I'm currently in therapy, but I'm trying to find a support group of people my age. If any of you are interested, give me a holler or something.

Well, I'm not a teenager, but I'm 20, fixing to turn 21. I've also been picking since I was VERY young just about your age, and just now tonight found out that there was actually a name for it and people that actually suffer from this too.
