ok so i dont really know much about this and have only just found this site ect and im 18 but this is what i pick from head to toe: I pick at my scalp, sort of scratch its manically until i have nails full of skin,and that i sometimes eat :/. then at the back of my head where my neck and hairline meet i have a recuuring scab that i pick and just cant stop! then theres my nose .. one nostril bit strane i know .. but it have formed a scab that i pick off and it bleedsinside my nose and i know that can be doing my nose any good. erm i pull dow my eyelids and pick goo out of my eyes. and if i ever get a spot on my face i pick it alot. ok so onto arms i have really bumpy arms which i recently found out was called keratosis pilaris. but i pick pick and pick away i pick them until they bleed let the blood dry and pick that then let that form a scab and pick that. if there are no scabs to pick i find a dry patch of skin and scapre at it untili pick a bit off. thats mosty on the top backs of my arms but does go down to my forearms aswell. fingers. i pick and bite the skin around my fingernails until its raw and sore :/ i dont bite my actual nails though. I normally leave boobs snd stomach alone although sometimes i pick any dry skin on nipples and also my belly button. ok so my butt. Thats like the backs of my arms .. all the way round my but and thighs whenever i can get to them i pick then pick the scabs. and i scrape the skin off the heels of my feet and thats about it. so yeah quite alot.i also eat alot of what i pick and i knonw thats realllly weird and not alot of people on here do that The thing is though that i dont feel like id ever beable to stop because its not like i do it when nervous or stressed or happy or sad i do it with all of them i just do it alll the time .. and with all those places to pick theres no way i can stop myself. even while writing this ive bitten my fingers scrpaed my scalp picked my arm and eye. i dont know how i feel about it . . in a way i know its bad because i could be damaging myself and it might end up as scars but in another way i love it its quite relieving you get the urge and you cant do anything else until somethings picked. and ive been doind it for as long as i can remember maybe not all of it but some of the things iv been doing since i was small. but its grown and grown as ive found more places and things to pick. sometimes i feel really bad about it though cos when my mum sees my arms bleeding she gets upset by it. but i although i try to hide it i like it . i cant really make sense of it but sometimes i know what im doing and sometime its subconcious. its good to find a place where people pick like me but does anyone pick everything like me?
