I have been through numerous traumas in my life starting at early childhood. I can remember picking at my face as a young teenager. I started breaking out on my scalp and picking at that.
A little over 13 years ago I was raped. I have since picked all over my body, but my face and scalp are the worse. I even use tweezers to pick. It hurts really bad when I do it, but it seems like I do it without realizing I am doing it. I have woken myself up at night picking while I was sleeping. I wake up in the morning with blood on my face from picking while I am sleeping.
I do suffer anxiety disorder, and depression related to the PTSD.
Its becoming so painful now and I know I need to stop but I don't know how, especially when I am doing it while I sleep.
Any suggestions are welcome.
