Hi everyone. Let me start out by saying that I am relieved to have found this site. My name is Samantha, and I am 25 years old. I watched an episode of "Obsessed" on A&E the other night, and it hit me.... I am a compulsive skin picker. I did not know until then that there was such a thing! Wow... I have been picking my arms, legs, and face for as long as I can remember, and have recently started picking/plucking my leg hairs instead of shaving them... and I feel as if I cannot stop. I really thought that everyone and anyone would pick when they had a breakout... and I do not get many, but I pick at EVERY little bump that shows up ANYWHERE on my skin... So, I guess I just wanted to introduce myself, and again say that I am happy to have found this site to know that I am not alone in this.
