I don't know how many times I have started typing a message and deleted it all because I just don't know how to verbalized this for the very first time in my life. I am 29 years old and have done this from an early age. I also have scoriasis which is dry skin that flakes off. Because of my dry skin, I never cause wounds by picking, because I always pick the dead stuff and eat it. It is on my ears, scalp,elbows and knees. I also chew on my fingers but not too terribly as well as pick at my feet. I also eat my scabs if I get an injury during daily life mishaps. I sit in my cubicle at work or at home on the couch and pick pick pick. I don't even realize it sometimes. At the same time, I never seem to do it around people. I feel disgusted with myself and I feel like a freak. I don't know how to stop. I also have an over eating disorder. I guess I have a lot of issues that are probably deeply rooted. I came upon this site and I guess I am just looking for some sort of support and to not feel alone anymore. Thanks for reading. I hope I didn't gross you out.
