Hi blondegenie, there is also another site which is very useful : http://www.stoppickingonme.com . I don't know if it is possible to get her to stop picking if she doesn't want to face the problem, and I'm afraid I don't really know what to suggest. Maybe other users of this site will come up with something more helpful, but all I can suggest is that you keep being a great, supportive sister, and be ready for her when/if she does decide to face it. You clearly love her very much, and already do this, and we are all here, and crossing our fingers for you both =o)

i concur with bm completely. hopefully she will "see the light" one day soon and acknowledge that she needs to take action as that is needed before anything will change. hopefully she'll delve into this site and the one bm recommended. there's lots of information within these sites to help someone seeking help and there's also lots of support, especially on the other one - it even has an Obsessive Skin Pickers Anonymous group that works a 12 step program. again, though, she needs to want to change her behaviour and believe that it is changeable. just as bm suggested, "keep being a great, supportive sister, and be ready for her when/if she does decide to face it. You clearly love her very much, and already do this, and we are all here, and crossing our fingers for you both =o) " <3 <3 <3
