Hello I am new to the group. I have never done anything like this before. I am a skin picker and it is bad. Mainly on my back and legs but there is occasion it is elsewhere like right now on my stomach. This has been a problem for a while, I did it as a child as stresses occured but was able to stop until I got into my adult hood and had kids. Having kids put a major depression on me and stress and anxiety and after I pick I feel so much better. There are times I sneak away from them to just to be able to pick and then I feel like I can go and handle the situation.
I have been way too embarrassed to admit this, it is gross and not fun to look at. It is a huge problem, I have destroyed my body. I have scars all over as well a scabs all over and the truth is I just don't know how to stop. I need help and support from others that are suffereing from the same thing. There are time I thought I am the only one that does soemthing like this but after looking at this website I realized I am not the only one. It is so important to have a support group so if anyone has any suggestions for me I would greatly appreciate it.
