I am freaking out. Literally everyday I tell myself that I am going to leave my face alone but even if I go a few days I end up caving in. It is like a trance state, I am frustrated with myself because I need to stop but feel like I really do not have control over myself.
I do have other compulsive behaviors. There was a period a year ago where I would wash my hands constantly( untill they bled) I was also unable to touch anything or most people without freaking out. Somehow those things really are not an issue for me.
Skin picking is a huge issue however. I cannot afford to seek counseling or to get on medication. I desperately need to know how to stop. And yes I do suffer from bdd
