Umm, I just now stumbled across this website and...
I seriously had no idea skin picking was a real disorder! I've been doing it for years (I'm 16 now) and had never considered it a disease or disorder, although my mom has told me that she thinks its weird that I like to pick my own skin. I read a bit of information on here that says that some people do it just because they're depressed or stressed out; well I've never considered myself to be either of those things, I just mostly do it cause I like it or just plainly out of boredom. Is that normal? I mean, my mom has joked around before saying that I'm OCD because I'm a neat freak sometimes, but I've never actually been diagnosed as that and I've never even thought that OCD can lead to skin picking....hmm....well, I'm not saying that I'm on this website because I want to get "cured", cause I mean, skin picking doesn't take control of my life or anything to that extreme, but I just wanted to say that I think it's kinda cool to know now that I'm not the only who does this. lol I don't feel so weird now
