This compulsive picking is so out of control...I have a large pimple on my cheek, which I resisted picking until this morning when I got up and it finally came to a head. I used a needle and tweezers to drain it, and then couldn't cover it with makeup. So, what did I do? I called in sick to work. Into my dream job, that I was fortunate to get after graduating from college a few years ago. I feel so guilty for lying to my boss, letting him down and missing our work Christmas party. Today, I just feel really low. I also have to confess to my husband that I called in because of my face. How embarrassing...he has always been so successful. Does anyone else do this? Call in sick because they don't dare be seen?
