12 step this S$#*T

Hello sisters and Brothers, ugh so this is the deal, I have been picking for as long as i can remember in the last 6 months after getting clean and sober, the picking is crazy bad, I'm isolating I had an impetigo infection...twice..all around it is a horrible situation, I CANT STOP! presently I am attempting to 12 step this obsession. Step One I admit I am powerless over picking. I am completely convinced. The very nature of dermatillomania is that it is an obsession BEYOND my mental control. I'm hoping that what I cannot do alone WE can do together. Much love to all of you courageous people! Andrea

It both saddens and relieves me to find that what I've done to myself for the last 40 years not only has a name, but a large group of sufferers. I'll be 61 in June and most of my adult life has been plagued by my ravaged face...caused of course by none other than me. I pray there's still hope for me. It helps to know I'm not alone and that there's someplace I can feel at ease describing what I know to many, probably most, would be unimagineable. Thank you.
