This is really scary for me to do. For the past 7 years, I’ve struggled with dermatillomania on my arms, chest, breasts, and especially my back. Not only that, but I have crippling anxiety and I pick without even knowing sometimes. I feel like any little blemish needs to be removed, and I have to bleed to know everything is out. My mom says my scars make me look like a leper, and that I’m not allowed to wear anything that reveals my back.
This past month, I’ve worked really hard to try and stop myself. I’ve set goals to keep myself going. This was a picture from the beginning of May, and soon I’ll post another on how it looks. I want to be able to wear my strapless dress this summer<3
I love you all<33 Thank you for taking the time for reading, or even glancing at my picture. Any support would be wonderful, because sometimes I feel alone in this battle.
