    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
