I have been picking since I started getting some acne in junior high. I still was doing it in high school but only to actual blemishes. Over the last year I have started to pick anything on my face and occasionally on other parts of my body. I use tweezers, needles, nail clippers, and my hands. I have scars on my face, gashes, and scabs. It is ruining my life. I don't hang out with friends anymore and my boyfriend gets so mad at me for not wanting to go out. I ruined a trip to Florida becasue the night before we left I picked and made myself look bad. I can not stop the urge. I feel like somehow I am making my face better when I do this. I have gone to a doctor and was prescribed Zoloft and go to see her at least once a week. But it is still too hard to stop. I don't have a job anymoe because of it. Tomorrow I have an interview but I don't think I can go. It's too bad. I hope I can make some friends on here.
