Hi There, I've been lurking around on this site for a while but just decided to join. I had no idea that other people are dealing with this. I have been picking my face, and only my face, for several years but it has recently become so much worse. I am so ashamed of myself. I am about to move to Florida and I am leaving my current job. My going away party for work is tomorrow and I have awful scabs all over my face..all self inflicted. I hate that this will be the last time I see my coworkers/friends and that I look this way. I have been lucky enough to have a job where I sit in a cubicle and answer phones (lucky in that I don't have to see people face to face). Now I am moving to Florida and will have to go out and find a job (interview) and probably be much more visible in my next job. I want to stop so badly, I am so tired of hiding in my apartment because of my face. I just bought some calamine lotion in the hopes that it will help the scabs heal. I hope that I can find and give support for other people here. Thank you for reading.
