People just don't understand!!!!!!!! Especially when they say "just stop" to us. If it was that easy I think we would already have stopped. Some people think we are dramatic about having dermatillomania. But they don't understand what it's like to ruin your body when we would probably have beautiful skin if we didn't damage it. I know some pickets have acne but I don't. I pick at nothing. I was doing to good for so long and I just picked. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I feel a relief but I feel do guilty at the same time. It should be as easy as "just stop" right? We all wish it was. I think we all want to stop but there is something deep down wanting to keep picking. That's why we do it. We think of what will happen when we stop and nervous. It's so addicting. I wish we were all free of this OCD!!! It brings down our self esteem and brings us so much hurt. People just don't understand.
