I'm almost 31 years old. I suffer from depression, eating disorder, etc. etc. I have been seeing a counselor for almost 5 years. I just recently started seeing a psychiatrist due to post-partum depression and am on 40mg of prozac a day. I have always picked - be it scabs, skin, nose - but over the past 6 weeks it has gotten much worse - to the point where I told my husband I'd be able to use the manicure/pedicure gift certificate he gave me once my skin healed - that was a mother's day present.... now it's september and I see no sign of my skin healing (I pick to the point of pain/blood). I think I get some sort of sick pleasure out of it - and I need to get my "fix" at least a couple times a day. I want to stop, but I don't want to replace it with another habit.... I don't know what to do. I'm scarred beyond belief on my back, my legs and now my toes, heels and fingers are starting to suffer. I want to stop, but I don't know how. Just needed to get all the above off my chest.
