You Go Girl! Yay, Mamma! Tell me, what are you doing when you feel the urge to pick? Or are the urges just not there? You are doing great!

thanks : ) I still have the urge to pick, in fact, at work today I had to fight the urge not to pick this one spot on my arm where there was a bump and it looked liked something underneath would pop out if I sqeezed it.... I wanted to so bad. Finally after about 7 minutes I got a bandaid and covered it up. The last couple of nights I have just really tried to distract myself when the urge comes. I also make sure I cover my arms right away when I feel the urge coming on. My husband knows about my picking so he helps to because I make sure to leave the bathroom door open and he tells me to stop! I do hope someday the urge will be gone for good....

Bandaids-- great idea! I'd only thought of using them AFTER picking. haha. Let me know what happens to your bump, if you don't mind. I think I have the irrational thought that whatever's underneath will just grow and grow and I MUST pick it to stop it/resolve it. In that way, picking is a relief and pleasure and I feel like I've resolved something. So, if you could tell me the bump just goes away, or whatever becomes of it, that would be great! (So far I haven't had much success just leaving those bumps alone on my arms.) But I'm working at it! Best to you and all...
