I finally was able to tell someone about my picking. I've mentioned it lightly before, but never in depth. It was through email. We haven't talked about it yet, but that's so she can go over it and get her thoughts prepared, since she's helping me look into my anxiety/stress issues.
It really does help to tell someone. Now I feel a bit more guilty about picking, whereas I've never had too much guilt about it before.
I just feel relieved.
