Help to heal (:

hey everybody! im lauren and i have been skin picking for about three years. i am 13 and i really need to stop. i finally got the idea to get and give help when i joined cheerleading. i was too embarrased from scars and scabs on my arms and legs to want to wear my uniform. it is too hard for me to tell friends and family. can anybody relate? if you stop, i stop too. if we work together, we can surely overcome this (: i will always be here as a friend to talk to when theres nobody else to talk to. this way i can help heal others and mself as well. please reply if you want to join me to stop for good!

I love your enthusiasm. Sometimes I feel like that's all I need, because I'm pretty pessimistic when it comes to these things. But I think we can help each other. I've been picking roughly since I was your age. Middle school, right? Now I'm a freshmen in college and still dealing with this struggle day to day. I would love to help you because I know the pain this disease causes, and I would hate for you to have to go through it for many years. Keep your head up, beautiful. :)
