Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
For the past few years I would use my fingers and just pull skin off the bottom my feet to the point of bleeding. I didn't know why I did it and didn't really think it was a big deal. Nobody sees the bottom of your feet so I continued to do it. I was at a friends house who has a hair pulling disorder and saw a paper about it on the counter. On the top in bold it said "Hair Pulling and Skin Picking" I read it and thought, "That sounds like me." So I looked it up on the internet at home. I suffer from sever anxiety and reading this website I do more things than I even noticed! I pick scabs too and I bit the skin off my fingers and eat it. ew that sounds nasty but it's true. I am 13, my mom doesn't know about this and I kinda want to tell her now but I'm scared to for no reason. I also don't have $30 just to learn how to stop this. Please help me!
