This is my OCD. More specifically known as Dermatillomania.
-
It was 2 years before I even realised what I was doing was a condition. I had spots just like every other teenager and I would pick my spots just like every other teenager too. The difference is that I just couldn't stop after removing the obvious ones - I had to get every imperfection, no matter how small, out of my skin. I truly believed that by doing this I was making myself look better, even if I had massive wounds on my skin (as pictured). The more I picked the more spots I actually got and this made me so paranoid about my skin and appearance. As I started picking daily it developed into a habit and then very slowly started becoming a subconscious act, meaning I would pick my skin without even being fully aware of what I was doing. I would just zone out and pick until any feelings of anxiety I had disappeared but only to have it replaced by self loathing and depression. Thus the cycle conditioned and here we are 6 years on.

I wanted to share incase anyone else out there is in a similar situation to my past self - I'm hoping this can raise some awareness not just about my condition but to everyone else suffering too. You are not alone and you can still have an incredible life.

Question for all you non-pickers out there; what would you say to someone with self inflicted skin like this? I mean in terms of uplifting support - nothing stupid like 'just stop picking'. (Not fishing for compliments I'm just curious and I hope a fellow skin picker can benefit from reading other people's comments).

I want to sit down with 25 strangers individually and write a short story about each of them. Would you let me? Tag someone who would be interested!

Tersesat

Waktu mengejar-ngejar tidak berkesudahan. Peluh menetes tak ada habisnya, selaras dengan tangis dan ringis. Lalu kutanyakan pada diriku sendiri, kemana sebenarnya arah tujuan hidupku ? Masih adakah di saku alasan melelahkan diri berlomba dengan waktu ?

Mengapa kita tak berdamai dan melakukan yang biasa-biasa saja ? Aku mulai sesak napas rasanya. Asal kau tahu, oksigen di luar zona nyaman tak banyak tersedia.

Essa é para todos aqueles serumaninhos ou etzinhos ou demoninhos e anjinhos num corpinho (estou abrangente hoje) e tem na mente 1 confusinho mas é um emboladinho feliz ou seja todos nós maravilhosas e complexas criaturas de Deus NO COMANDOOO

- Lucy, don't you ever feel obligated to make yourself small in order to avoid making that person feel uncomfortable. That one person that's telling you you've changed, as if it was a bad thing, that person doesn't care about you. Those words are the words of a person who feels threatened by you and doesn't know how to deal with your growth. That is that person's problem, not yours. Do not get it wrong, Lucy, if they try to hold you down is because you're going up.
Henry knows that usually people that tell you you've changed with a bad connotation and with a judgamental voice are people who you've outgrown and feel insecure looking in your shiny new reflection.

Wanderous feet👌💕😍 😍

· You're so fuckin' special.
I wish I was special,
but I am a creep. I am a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here. ·

I remember that day one day in 7th grade that changed my life. That day was when I first self harmed, two small vertical cuts that barely bled done by a bobby pin that I had in my hair. “Just this once” I thought. I’m now going into 9th grade and still to this day cut myself, daily. Pathetic cuts deeper and deeper everyday, not done with bobby pins but done with one of the 11 razors I have. And it’s pretty fucked up how it became this way, how my life when downhill from those first two, how self inflicting pain became so addictive that I do it everyday day. I wanna stop I really do, but I can’t, I just can’t.
