Hi guys, I too have a problem with picking at my skin and I started this year I'm only 14. As you can tell from my user name, I just wanted to talk, and tell my story. I've been told it's a side effect of depression but never really admitted it. My family is ashamed of my skin picking and even in the summer I have to wear a long baggy sweatshirt. I know it's not right to hate your family but they are the most judge mental bunch I know. They've called me fat and now that I look anorexic it's the weight they appreciate on me. My skin picking leads on to even more insults that I've cried every night and picked on even more. It's gotten better ever since I threatened to run away , but my picking stays the same. However I've learned to heal these wounds in 4 days max, but I just want to stop forever. I just sigh. It's embarrassing at school because I have to lie about having acne but it's just stupid picking disorder. Only my best friends know but I need help. I admit it can someone please help?
