I battled a skin picking habit for over 30 years. It began when I was in junior high school where I endured terrible bullying.
I began picking my nails and then moved on to my skin. I have numerous scars on my body as testament to my addiction.
I would try for years to stop especially after I would make my skin bleed.
During these pandemic times I have spent time with myself and my thoughts and I have come to realize that I am totally and completely ready to let go of this addiction. I built this invisible bubble around me to shelter me and I am ready to tear it down. I am so tired of allowing those kids power over my life especially after so many years.
It is going to be a day by day effort and I may be dealing with this for the rest of my life. Yet I am ready to do the work because I want to live the biggest and best life I can possibly live.
