Wow. If you really think about it... none of us are really helping each other. We are all going through the same situations, and asking each other for advice... but nothing is being accomplished. Is there anyone on this site who has actually OVERCOME this disorder?? Those are the people we should be asking the advice from. I have had this disorder for about 6 or 7 years, and I'm only 21. I have tried everything from cutting my nails off, wearing gloves, trying ProActive (even though I don't have acne), covering mirrors with blankets, and lots more. The only thing I noticed to help was changing the light bulbs to much lower watts. If there is a 60 watt light bulb in your bathroom, you can usually see much more detail to imperfections.... so if you put in a 40 watt, it helps eliminate some extra picking. But I seem to pick at my skin even when not around mirrors. I think the disorder definately has to do with stress, depression, and anxiety... and eventually it becomes an unconscienceous habit.
We all need serious help! haha
