Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
I can't believe I found this website! I can see me in all of the posts. I do it all. I'm 43 and I pick my face, my arms, my hands, my buttox, my legs, my feet, my neck, ears and my cuticles. It's like a ritual - I if there is anything dry, bumpy, scabby - I'm on it. I've noticed that I can tell when something is going to pop out and I'm on it even before it arrives! Lately I've even been picking my belly button. There is a feeling of relief when I can pull skin, or pop something. If I get something out of it, it's almost rewarding. I love popping zits, and getting out blackheads- even if I see some on my husband- I have this urge. My 8 year old had a skin condition (Begins with M - can't remember name) that caused bumps that stayed for a long time, then they would get big and look like big zits - if you left them , they would just disappear. - I wanted to squeeze them so bad! I got him to let me squeeze a couple - and I HAD to get something out of them. I've been diagnosed with Bipolar II and I just got diagnosed with ADD. I see a therapist and a psychiatrist - and I've been seeing the psych for almost 5 years- and I have been too embarrassed to tell her. I finally told my therapist this week- and I showed her my arms. She wants me to call my psych. I have a huge sore on the top of my hand - and it just keeps getting bigger. It hurts at times- but I still can't stop. At night, before i go to bed, I do a thorough body scan and get every single scab and bump that I feel. OMG - I'm really sick!
