This is kind of a vent of frustration with myself. I used to think the reason i started picking was because i moved 3 years ago, but the more i think about it, the more i realize how long ive been doing this. Ive been picking my scalp for 9 years, im 16. ever since i was little, me and my sister would pick the skin peeling off our feet and become obsessed with it. ive always picked my scabs. i look at pictures of me when i was about 9 and i had little scabs on my face, im guessing from picking. not nearly as bad as what my face looks like now but still. for the past 3 years ive tried picking every little bump on my face. it started with my face, then i started picking my chest (including my breasts) and my arms, back and legs. Now i have scabs and scars all over my face and body. I continue to try to stop picking. my scalp stings and hurts, ive made scabs the size of a dime on my face. i dont even have an acne problem, i CREATE my own acne by irritating everything. i keep saying im going to stop for good, but the longest i last is 3 days. its embarrassing and im sick of myself. idk what to do anymore, ive tried everything i can to help myself. im just stuck and dont know what to do.
