Hello I am brand new to this site, so please forgive me if there are similar threads like this. First of all it is so very comforting to know im not alone. I have been a picker as far back as I can remember. I pick my ears, untill there raw, take the scabs and rub them with my fingers, and on my lips. This is so embarsssing. I have kept this secret for years. I pick my nose , and rub the boogers on my lips to. I know this is strange. I have other compulsive habits too. I cannot stand velour. I have to dig my nails into, and I blink my eyes fast(sometimes). I have an appointment in april with a psychiatrist. I am almost positive I have ADHD too. My son constantly scratches, and picks himself too. I feel absolutely terrible I passed my genes on to him. My husband has no mental illness. I have depression, and anxiety, but i think my symptoms were just being treated and not my condition(s). I am very impulive to. Now my sons school counselor, had me make him an appt. Too because he has all the symptoms of adhd too. Do you think I could have ocd too. I think so. Despite being disgusted by having these challenges I feel better knowing were going to get help. I didn't tell the psychiatrist(years back when I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety) about any of these compulsive behaviors. Therefore I could not be treated properly. My husband tells me im so weird, and "whats the matter with you, knock it off)so I have no one to talk to about my struggles, and I feel all alone. Thank you for allowing me to join your community. I look forward to hearing from all if you. I have never told anyone about this. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me.
