I can't stop pikcing my legs and after two years it's finally enough. I sit for hours at a time and pick at my skin, pluck hairs from my legs and destroy my legs. I haven't felt comfortable showing my legs in years. I have caused numerous infections and pussing sores on my legs. I had no idea that so many people were like me. I have sat and cried and scolded myself for not being able to control myself but I really can't control it. I will sit down to watch tv and miss entire shows because I was picking at my legs. It hurts and it looks so ugly and even as I'm doing it, I KNOW I should stop. It's like an addiction, and I really need some help. I didn't know a resource like this existed and I am so utterly grateful. I welcome any words of experience, encouragement or commiseration. Thank you for sharing with me.
