I never really cancelled a doctor's appointment, cause my main area is face picking and I really don't pick at my body that much, just once in a while. I have cancelled dentist appointments many times though. I don't like them being that close to my face where thay can see how bad my skin is and som...

My scalp picking has gotten worse. I feel it's worse than face picking at times cause I don't have to be in front of the mirror to do it. The only thing that helps me is when I wash my hair, than I don't have a urge to pick at it and mess it up.

Re: Dissociation and Avoidance

Just as an alcoholic drinks to produce a state of detachment from his world and his problems, so the picker "trances out" by picking, becoming oblivious to her surroundings for a time.

That's just it, she won't admit that she doesn't specialize in CBT and won't refer me to another therapist that does. Whenever I wanna mention the picking, she says, again we're back to the picking, let's talk about what u are feeling and how u need to get out and go to some groups at this clinic. I...
