Half of my life. Seriously??!!

I am weeks away from my 30th birthday. I've been picking since I was 15 more or less, which means that dermatillomania has been in control of HALF of my life. Frightening, right? To say the least.

I tried various forms of therapy, hypnotherapy, yoga, meditation, gloves, squishy toys, you name it..... I have become so socially isolated that I actually moved to a small town where nobody knows me. In my new apartment I have covered all mirrors and made other necessary 'adjustments'. I will try to fight it one more time.

They say it takes 21 days to break a bad habit. Incidentally, I'm writing this on 9th December - 21 days from my 30th birthday, the new year (the dates coincide), and hopefully a new chapter.

If anyone would like to talk and/or track my progress :)) feel free to email me

Big hugs and lots of positive energy to all
