Can I ever stop doing this, without knowing what's causing it?
As many people here, I pick my skin since i can remember. More precisely, my scalp. As most of us, i simply.. like it, is hard to explain, and i do know most of you understand exactly what i'm talking about. However, I don't know why. I don't have a very stressful life, I have excellent grades, i have never been through a traumatizing experience; actually, the only thing about me i am unhappy with is my weight: i could definitely lose some. I have never been to a therapist, and I don't want to. Absolutely no one knows about this condition. I have already managed to stop bitting my nails (about 3 years ago). It was hard, but I did it by myself, and managed a little deal between myself and i: i can only pick my scalp at weekends, when i'm alone at home (mostly because my hair gets oily and dirty when i do it). To me, it's a breakthrough, but i just can't stop it completely. So, the main question is, what can be causing this? And what do you recommend? Maybe some physical exercise, to keep my mind occupied? Thank you all so much :)
