hey what's going on people. i'm alex and i pretty much just wanted to rant a bit. pay no attention lol. i guess i first started picking my arms since i was 14. i went to ireland and my cousin noticed a pimple or something on my arm and picked it. after that i thought, "you can get acne on your arms?!?!" so i guess ever since then, i've just been addicted to picking. i tend to do it all the time. not that i'll sit for hours but i probably would if i could. it's kind of embarrassing because my arms are pretty scabbed up and sometimes people ask me what happened. usually i just say, oh i kinda have a picking problem. i pretty much tell everyone close to me to tell me to stop if they see me picking...but most the time i just ignore them and continue. i don't know why. i don't feel a need to "control" ne thing or ne thing like that. i just...i don't know. it's really comforting to know that other people actually suffer from this (as bad as that sounds lol) i was watching like tlc or discovery health channel and they showed this lady on it, and she had a picking problem and i was like...whoa! there's an actual name for what i do?! this is amazing, like i can research it and find out how to stop and meet people that i can ACTUALLY relate to. because it is kind of lonely knowing that the people around me just, don't get it. ne ways. if ne of that makes sense to any of you, thanks for reading my thoughts out loud hah. i just wanna say i'm very thankful for this site and i hope to learn ALOT more about this.
