I am so very glad I found this site. I thought there was something very seriously wierd about me that I would pick my skin. I pick the skin of my feet - I would say right now half the skin off of each foot has been peeled away. I pick the skin around my fingernails. If I have chapped lips, I pick those either. You get the picture. I am already on tons of meds for another chronic disorder I have, I really dont want to go on another med.
However, the bad thing is - my 9 YO neice notices that I pick - and she has started doing it to. I dont want to pass this on to another family member.
HOW DO I STOP???
P.S. I have a history of 3 nervous breakdowns requiring mental health admissions.
