Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
I'm a 20 year old girl and new to this site. I just joined because I've decided I want to try a new way of tackling my dermatillomania (which only seems to be getting worse).
I haven't told anyone about it (although my mum is aware I pick) because I'm embarrassed, and also I feel like that would make me more relaxed about doing it in front of them and less likely to stop.
I'm looking for a buddy who already picks and wants to stop, so that we both have a person to be accountable to. I feel like it'd be easier to be honest and get through it with someone else who's in the same situation.
We could contact each other through the day (especially at dangerous times) to remind each other not to pick, make ourselves accountable to each other and be there for general support. Hopefully we could watch each other progress together!
I don't mind age or gender, ideally it would be someone in the UK so we could text each other and be in the same timezone, but I'm sure we could work around that kind of thing.
Also, I don't know how we could privately exchange contact details on this site, but maybe those of you who've been here longer can help me out with that.
Please get in touch if you're interested!
