Hi there, Yes of course, I know what you're going through. I've been doing the same thing from about the same age. I'm sorry to hear about your suffering. Because I know the same suffering, I know how challenging it is. I hope you and I will be able to find someone out there that can tell us how to retrain our brains to stop doing this. I know there must be some brilliant thought trick that can stop this self sabotage. Everyday I tell my self I'm not going to do it, and everyday I do it again. Nearly every time I do it, I feel so guilty and stupid and out of control afterward. I am a person that is so very much in control of every other aspect of my life except this one. Someone help us please!

Hi, I just wanted to say how validating it is to hear that someone else has experienced picking their Montgomery glands. This has been a major issue for me for years and I have scarring on my nipples due to picking. I used to lose hours picking at them and would come to bleeding. I was so embarrassed of the scabs and never wanted to show my breasts to anyone. I started an SSRI which has helped tremendously with the picking behavior. Thank you for telling your story. This has been so personal and shameful to me and it is so helpful to know that someone else has experienced something similar.
