I managed all last night without picking my legs lthough I have had a bit if a go at my thumb. Thank god I've never really had a go at my face, it's always been places that people don't really see - are you able to cover it up with makeup cheech?

Xx

I've picked at my upper arms since 10th grade...and I'm a junior in college now. The scars I don't think will ever fade, maybe I'll post a pic if I can figure out how but it's terrible. My mom keeps urging me to go to a dermatologist ... she doesn't know it's my fault. I even used to take meds for "folliculitis" which I didn't have and it made me sick. I started picking at my face recently and it looks bad....just in time for summer eh. I feel your pain.

Hi & sorry to hear that you've been bad. It's ok for me as it's on my legs which can easily be covered up so I'm not sure how you would cope with it on your face :( my holiday is just under a month away & my legs look worse than ever :'(

I've always had an issue with picking. I pick my face mostly. Think it started when I hit puberty and the spots started to appear and has pretty much been consistent throughout my life since then. There are times when I can go months without picking but as we all know, it only takes a few seconds or minutes to mess everything up.

Feeling a bit down now because had a bit of a picking spree a while ago after not having done any real damage for a week or so. Thought it was getting better.. so am a bit disappointed in myself. Used to be really harsh to myself when this happened and trying not to do that anymore, at least not go overboard because it doesn't make things any better. I mean, I already feel bad for picking and then I just continue to punish myself with negative, hateful thoughts towards myself.
