Professional Picker

I've been picking my belly button for 32 years to I thought I was alone. I stopped for about 10 years straight then recent tragedies and supressed feelings made me strt again. I pick my belly button until it bleeds sometimes but what I usually do is pick at it until it gets scabby andi like to pull at the skin without tearing it off. It gives me a rush and I do this until I can't pull anymore skin and wait until it hardeneds up or scabs up to pick at it again. Then I like to pour peroxide in it to feel the burn, think also gives me a little rush sometimes I go to gar and make it bleed,again I just fill it with peroxide and neosporin. So I've been doing this ritual on and off for years and I thought I was the only "weirdo". Any comments or advice? Am I the only one who takes it this far? P.S. sometimes I like to eat the skin too...

I have been doing this since I’ve been 5 or 6. I don’t stop until it bleeds. I like for it to harden so I can pull the skin. It’s definitely some sort of rush but it’s so comforting.
