I've also been coming to slow realization of a lot of things in the last couple months since last posting here. Especially how much ...

Re: what to do with my fingers?

I have been trying to stay busy and trying to keep my skin moisturized. If my skin isn't breaking out and dried out, there's nothing to feel for. If retrain myself to take care of my skin, there won't be anything there. Things I do to try and keep fingers busy: Sewing (Bags, quilts, costuming, etc),...

Re: Anyone too embarassed to go to certain docs?

Believe it or not, this would classify as social anxiety disorder. We fear the judgement, the criticism, the what its of the social world. Well, a side effect/symptom of anxiety. I don't want to go to a doctor or a treatment center, etc because.. I don't want to hear it, I don't want to explain, I'm...

Re: LIST 3 THINGS YOU WOULD RATHER DO THAN PICK

I would rather have a good relaxing massage than pick my skin.

I would rather have sex with husband without worrying about his reaction to the aftermath.

I would rather play with my little girl.

Re: where do i begin?

You just did start. We both did. We started by admitting. We started by seeking answers, help, a successful way to end.

Like lx said, it is a very ingraind behavior/habit. It didn't occur overnight. It won't stop overnight.

Re: being told you're beautiful

It's a self-esteem/perception issue. And more than likely us convincing ourselves what we think we need to be. My other half will tell me I an beautiful (except when I am struggling to stop) and I believe him. I just Haven't broken that invisible wall. I also have convinced myself that I need to be ...

Re: picking trance?

Yes!!!!! I'll end up spending an hour without realizing that I have until I get back to my husband. And then I feel guilty, like a scolded child, like I will get lectured... I think I an a combination of things. It is stress relief (I have alone time, I don't have to think/feel/hear it) self esteem(...

I don't. I'm afraid of the possible judgement, questioning, "can't you just stop?" ...

My husband knows and he tries to help. My mother knows but I think she influenced my habit/obsession because I have seen her do similar. Although she isn't at my level.
