I'm 90% better. Being so much better is a surprise side effect of something personal I've been dealing with. It is a surprise, but it also makes sense. I'll explain: For me, picking was a time when my brain could wander. It worked the other way too, if my brain wandered, I would find myself picking. Over the past few years I've been able to observe, almost as another person, what my thoughts were, and how they interacted with picking. Something that I noticed was the types of things my mind would wander to. 1. going over things I had or had not done correctly. 2. thinking about how others understand me. 3. dissociation/creative thinking, like writing music, plays and poetry in my head-positive, but also, escapist. I'll continue in a few posts below so that it easier to read. I really dislike how there are no paragraph breaks allowed here. The formatting issues make posts frustrating to read, and reduces feedback and available support!
