I honestly don't know when I started picking at my skin, but it's been at least 10 years. I am a married 30 year old Mother of 2. I used to be outgoing, and confident, but sadly that is a past version of me. I pick my skin a lot. Mostly my face. I have Crohns Disease and each time I am admitted or in the ER I am always asked if I have a meth problem. I love the look of remorse when my blood work proves them wrong. My kids who are 5 and 7 ask me why I have owwies all over my face. It keeps me from having much of a social life and has killed my ability to see beyond the red marks, scars and scabs. My skin picking was some what under control until my I found my Father after he shot himself in the backyard of the home we shared. That was on 1-19-11 and since, my picking has accelerated. Spending an hour in front of the mirror with tweezers and a safety pin. I am desperately seeking relief. I want to see a beautiful woman in the reflection of my mirror, instead of a make up caked monster.
