What does face picking feel like? Please respond and help me understand better.
What do you feel when you are picking your face? What do you feel when you get something to come out? Do you prefer one type of zit over another? Do you examine what comes out? Do you smell it? What do you feel? Do you get sad when you dont have anything to pick on your face? Are you an expert at spotting a budding one? Have you ever used a safety pin or sharp object to dig it out? Ever had the feeling "If I just squeeze it the right way or dig a little farther I will get the root out and eveything will be fine? Have you ever had one so big it was like a cyst and it was the greatest thing ever when it all came out? Have you ever picked so bad you were embarassed to leave the house? Do you like to pluck hairs too? Do you take any type of mental health medication? Do you search your body for anything that feels pickable? I feel so sick for saying this stuff but at the same time want to release it to the right people as I no longer am alone and its a little less embarassing... I dont know what I feel when I pick I think about everything but no emotion seems prevelant. It really is like a trance. I love getting a zit out. Especially a big blackhead because it doesnt leave a mark. I love when I hear it pop. I often wipe it on a tissue and when Im done I look at the tissue - I am in awe that this much stuff was in my skin and happy that I took so much out. But I dont exactly feel "happy" - I cant explain it and would appreciate help. I dont think this is normal. Im embarassed and ashamed. First step admitting it. Next step: therapy. :)
