    Turn To The Left

    My left arm is a mess. I have four scratches with scabs. I have been picking the scabs. Anything hard I have an urge to pick it and get rid of it. It has bled and even oozed clear stuff.yum. I feel like I'm on meth or something with this compulsion. It's part of my recent...

    So Tired Of It

    I was told this is an obsessive compulsive behavior which makes sense. I do it when I'm anxious and even when I'm not. Any scab, bump...mostly my face, neck, scalp, back, chest...sometimes my legs and arms. Any just when they're about to heal...boom...there's the temptation...

    Not So Much "like To"...

    Ever since I can remember, I have always been picking my scabs. I was such an akward kid and clumbsy (still am!) and always scraping my knees and cutting up my arms. I don't know why but I could never stop myself from picking my scabs off. Even before I knew it was a bad thing to...

    I Just Can't Help Myself

    I have had a strange warty thing on one of my toes for about two years.  It disappeared for a while then reappeared in the last few weeks.  Everytime I break it open, a clear gooey liquid comes out - it's fantastic.  It usually scabs over and about two days later I...

    Picking Runs In My Family.

    My dad picks at his scabs and so does his mom. I don't think I learned it from them since I didn't notice as a kid. This leads me to think that picking has a genetic component. I have some nasty scabs on my arm from picking. I also like to pick at my ears for some reason. I...

    Habit

    Some people bite their nails, some people suck their thumb, but personally I've never understood the appeal of those habits. BUt then again, nobody understands why I do this. I pick. I'm a picker. Scab after scab after scab, untill I find a better one and leave it to scar. I...

    Being Compulsive

      Ever since I was young I have been interested in that crusty layer of scabbing that forms over the everyday wounds of children. Which of us as children haven't been interested in it? But, anyways, my interest within the scars that form on my...

    Unhealthy Habit

    I don't know what it is. Like seriously, but I love picking my scabs and cuts. I think I have a serious problem or something and its kind of scaring me that I am the only one who has shared this experience. I like the way the skin of the scab/ cut gets hard after a couple of days...

    So Yeah...

    I just clicked on "Random Experiences" and here I am. I pick, mostly the side of my face, near my ears...also my arms and legs a bit as well as my scalp. I used to also pick at my back a lot. Any little thing that's raised I feel the need to pick. I can't say it...

    I like it-especially when you don't ask the person cutting your hair how they'll cut it....you see all the chunks of hair cascading down....you, sort of know-bye bye hair ;-)
