I Want To Stop Picking At My Skin

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 40 People

    Has anyone here had success?

    I am feeling a bit hopeless and need some inspiration. Every year I say, by my birthday next year I'll have fixed this... I'm about to turn 19 and I am far from out of the woods. Any tips? Success?

    Touch is so sensual. Fingertips moving gently over your skin. Producing goosebumps in expectation. Then your hand makes gentle contact with my skin and I shiver. Cool!
