I today for the first time googled this problem I have been having for over 8 years. I am a 25 year old woman, and it has become a problem. People say that I am beautiful, I know I can be, but I end up needing to wear more makeup than I would like and I am NEVER able to wear the cute clothes I would like to. Rarely can I wear a tank top or strappy dress, and if I do, I have to wear my hair down to cover the damage I have done and continue to do from picking. I can’t beleive how many other people share this problem. I relate to walking by the mirror and having to stop each time. It’s especially bad when I have something to do and am procrastinating. It makes sense hearing that it is an OCD behavior. I have never been diagnosed, but I wouldn’t be surprised. Thanks for everyone on here opening up about their problem. It is always nice to know that we are not alone. I am going to keep checking in as I hope to use this site as a resource to get a handle on this. Peace, and love!
