Thanks all for the replies on my first-ever post
It's very good to know I'm not alone.
I will definitely try some of these techniques... Especially forcing myself to wear pants all the time. That helps a ton because I don't see them, so I don't even think about picking. My mind's usually on other things, like school, work, or alcohol, lol. I just need to get it out of my sight. I really want to look good in my halloween costume and be able to show some leg!
DarkDreamer, I like your story lol. You have a very interesting life; I have never come across someone with the situation you have, and it's cool how you write about it so well. That's also awesome you have an understanding bf (well, I assume he's understanding
). I'd like to hear more stories. I'll try and not pick/drink , however today is already not that kind of a day.
To the other scab pickers, do you have certain types of scabs that are more enticing to you than other ones? I like the ones that have a really dark color on them, and you just KNOW that those are the ones that will cause blood to really pool up once you pick them. It's worth waiting a day or two for it to get that point. Just throwing that out there, if that makes sense to anyone...
(note: I'm sorry if any of this is triggering. Please let me know! I'm still new to the rules/regulations in a psych forum!)
