Hi I am pretty new to this forum so first I want to say it has been so helpful and encouraging so far, so thank you all! I have been trying harder than ever to limit my picking over the past couple of days and I'm doing ok - skin's looking lots better and it's mostly just older scabs now not new raw ones, which is great! Problem is I am feeling ridiculously anxious/on edge all the time. I feel like I want to tear up everything and anything now I am trying not to tear and pick my skin. Literally I can't sit still - I feel like I have so much nervous energy and I don't know what to do with it! Does anyone have any suggestions about what to do instead of picking to get rid of all this anxiety?? I want to punch something it's horrible! If I can't stop this feeling I know I am going to start picking again. Longest I ever managed was three days but I never usually manage longer than a day without picking. It's just so difficult! So yeah - what do you do instead of picking?
