No I cant just stop...its not that simple people!

I am soo grateful I found an outlet to seek support n help for this sickening disorder. I am 41 and have picked as far back as I can remember. I do it unknowingly and sometimes I am 100% aware of what I am doing. I hate it with a passion and just want to stop. I don't understand why, well I mean stress n anxiety are key reasons why and the lack of self esteem. I am not on drugs and I just want some.relief. I am open to all suggestions. I have been diagnosed as suffering from PTSD, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and I am sure I have a lil bit of adhd! Looking forward to some.advice n suggestions. Thank you to those who reply. I want to be done with this self destructive behavior.

rkrocket. i am so grateful i found this site and ppl like you who i can completely relate to. I was in shock and awe that others do the same thing i do. i read on here that one girl wrote on her mirror in sharpie "dont pick" so I did the same and It does help with not starting, of course jus like an alcoholic (which I am) one is too many and a thousand never enough. jus know that there are ppl out here like me who do care for you and do want to help u and want the help to.. look at how beautiful u are. you deserve a community willing to give their time and advise to help make that beautiful woman even more gorgeous with a great self esteem. i jus spent 5 days locked in my room. now my face is ok to go out to public and i feel my self confidence flooding back. you are worth it. and we are here to help. my name is ashleigh. txt me or call 636 667 1076
