recently have been really stressed and to avoid picking my face did a few sessions of glycolic peel at the dermatologist. the last session i asked her to remove some capillaries on my cheek which she did with laser. i was so pleased that my skin was becoming a bit more normal looking. unfortunately after the laser my skin went really red and crusted over. i didnt touch it and was so pleased with myself. the crusts then came off and left me with two indented scars which were old previous scars that after many treatments with glycoluc acid had disappeared. i am now so depressed i see these scars and have started picking. first only at these and then all over my face. i have started to notice all of my defects due to years of picking, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries and black heads and it makes me cry and pick and pick and pick. i leave the house just to go to work and at work i cant concentrate because i keep thinking about my ugly ruined skin. i get home and look at my face in the mirror cry and pick again. i dont want to do anything or see anyone, im so ashamed. i just want to go to sleep and not wake up. i have an appioibtment in 11 days time to see my dermatologist. i just pray that she can at least improve these two scars. when i see imprivement i tend to reduce or stop picking. i feel so frustrated i just want to stop and get my life back. why did i do this to myself? why cant i stop? please help me i feel so upset.
