Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
so as much as i love the idea of this forum, the last couple days, as i've been reading i've noticed something odd. every time i read a post, and i mean EVERY time, i get reminded of how many scabs are on my body, how many pimples i can feel and the urge comes on very strongly. i wonder if this caring and sharing actually brings it all to the forefront of my thought processes, whereas if i was doing something else online i wouldn't be feeling those urges. Has anyone else noticed an Increased desire after being on here, like instead of a renewed commitment to stop, you get a renewed desire to wallow in it? if so, how do you accept the support, without acting in ways which force you to Need support? can coming out and being open lead to a state in which you convince yourself it's ok and you don't need to do the emotional work to get healthy, body and mind? can being ashamed of what you do actually be beneficial in some way???? i need to really think about all this.
