Today I found out that my skin picking has a name and will be identified as a disorder in the new DSM 5 manual that is coming out. I have been picking for over 20 years. I pick my face, neck, and back. I pick just about every day and get immediate relief from it followed by guilt and shame. I have had chemical peers, laser surgeries and micro derm treatments to help decrease my scarring, but then I revert back to picking. I have read the other forums today and feel so bad for some of the people. I can totally related to a lot of them. I don't know how to stop picking. It has definitely become a big part of my life and is a daily routine for me. I would love to start a support group for people like myself. Anyone in NJ?
