Never Thought I Would Be Doing This..
I have now been dealing with this for over 11 years. I have my fair share of scars and told many lies to cover them up. I have tried everything from expensive psychologists to attempting to stop with my own willpower. I don't have a lot of money, so I can't afford to go pay someone to help me. I feel like my family does not understand how much pain this causes me, which makes me pick more. They just do not understand. My boyfriend begs me to stop and I really want to. The compulsion just gets so strong that I can't. I have had my fair share of life problems when I was younger, but I feel like I am over it. I want to move on, but I can't when I can't work because I have open sores that could potentially be a large problem when I am an EMT. I am so tired of the scars and questions that I do not know where to turn anymore. If anyone has any ways they stopped picking on their own, I would really appreciate you letting me know what they are. I want to stop this cycle that I have been living with for so long.
