Misslinz I really really feel for you. Any sign of stress and I start a session. I really enjoy having long relaxing baths but they turn into picking sessions. I am trying so hard to find other ways to deal with stress, and I know what you say when you know you will pick again tonight. I wish I could say something to make you feel better but I know that you are probably just so low right now, angry with yourself and guilty. All I can say is that I know and that you shoudn't beat yourself up. Tomorrow is a new day. Last night I completely broke down. My hair was covered in blood from picking and my face looks like I have been beaten up. I sobbed and sobbed for hours while my husband hugged me and told me we woudl get through this. I think I am the worst I have been in my life. I couldn't go to work today as I just can't pull myself out of this pit. The only shining light - other than my hubby and kids who I adore and who support me so much - is finding other people who get what I am going through and that I can't just stop. If only.

I know your misery and have had some terrible days recently myself. I have picked over the past few days more than I have in a long time. It is to the point where I wont even look people in the eye because I know they are looking at my face in disgust. I cried today for while just thinking how I don't want to live like this anymore - but then what did I do? picked my face more. I just feel so much better when I am picking. Then after I finally pull myself away from the mirror I am just so ashamed and hate myself. I feel hopeless just like you do. I want to stop picking but no matter how hard I try I give into my compulsion and it makes me sick.

i did it again today too... i sat in my sink again until my legs went numb from being cramped so close to the mirror. i know exactly what you mean about looking people in the eye. i wish i had found this site sooner. for so long i walked around feeling like i was so alone with this problem... it is very comforting to know someone else feels like me, although i hate that anyone else has to go through this, at least we can sort of do it together now,
