love the buddy system idea. such a comfort to know there are so many other people dealing with the same issues. one suggestion i have found is bandaids before bed. I get a box of bandaids and put one on each spot, especially the ones that I have already picked, i also put special medicine on those (fyi i have found that sulfer based medications *ask your doctor first* are good because sulfer is a natural anti-infamatory and the minerals in it help skin to heal faster....learned that from my dermatologist....who has been aware of my picking since I started seeing her; she recognized the issue from looking at my skin... I didn't tell her). Anyways, unwrapping each bandaid and then placing it on a spot gives my fingers something to do, I am still paying attention to the spots, but this way I am trying to change the attention I give to my skin into a possitive thing as opposed to a negative and hurtful thing. on a different note, just wondered if anyone else struggles with their weight and if they have found any correlation between the two.

It's been a really long time since anyone has posted, but maybe there is someone in Florida I can buddy up with. I have not enjoyed the environment of living in Florida because I cannot wear shorts and tank tops. I've been battling this my whole life and would really appreciate some addition help/support to finally get on with my life! tfitzgerald4@tampabay.rr.com
