I have had this problem for about 5 years now, since 8th grade! Every day I would pick all the skin off my bottom lip and the little part of the top lip that sticks out. I would do this until it bled, but then got more subtle with it, getting my fingers at specific layers. Now if I leave my lips alone for a few days, the skin will grow back all hard and gross so that I will bite/peel/pick do whatever to make them feel somewhat normal again. It’s totally gross and I can’t stop. The sad thing is, being large and Angelina Jolie-y, my lips would be my favorite feature if not for this disorder. And chapstick, in my experience, only makes it worse!

Me? Sorority girl? Yeah right. That has always been my attitude up until this point. The more I think about it though, the more I want it, especially with my boyfriend in a frat. I’m not quite sure if I fit into that crowd though (which I am proud of, to an extent). Anyway, we will see how it goes come rush time.
I think this goal goes with one of Never Listening to My Mother’s Hair Advice Again! Boy does it always end in disaster.
