I was just wondering what everyone's experience of skin picking is? myself i pick anything that i can feel, it's like i have to get my skin smooth so all the ragged bits of skin around a scab must be picked and I don't really like it if it starts to bleed as it's like it's destroying all my work as the blood will created another lump on my skin I also just generally like the sensation of skin being peeled off the longer the bit of skin of the better and i like to look at the piece when i have finished, almost like seeing what i have ridden from my body sometimes if i drop or loose this piece of skin before i am done with it, i can get very frustrated and upset and must pick my skin until i have a substitue piece. I once contemplated purposefully burning myself in the sun to be able to peel my skin when i was very angry after an arguement with someone. I never did so and i think i am lucky that careful suncare was drilled in to me from such a young age or i probably would have done.
