I am so pissed at myself! ;) I had a really bad picking spell last Sunday (about 1.5 hours) and totally mutilated my hands. So I went to the beauty store and asked them to help me find a cuticle/hand softner and gloves so I wouldn't have anything to pick. I was determined I was NOT going to do this anymore. So for two days I was so good (only minimal picking, but I still picked), putting on the cream, wearing the gloves while sleeping and driving, and I was so proud. :cussing: And THEN it starts. I get the overwhelming feeling to pick pick pick. So I do. This morning while showering, my fingers and toes hurt like hell. I actually thought about throwing my tools away. But then I got scared. So I didn't. I hate myself for doing this and not being able to control it. It is awful. No one understands. They are like, just stop. My mom says put the thought in a little box and put the box away. I am like :) yeah, right. She doesn't friggin get it. What helps????? I don't want to do this anymore. I have an appt on 2/1 to see a pyschologist at the St. Louis U Behavioral Center. Someone who speciallizes in OCD and Derma

what helps?

usually a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and antidepressants

I was prescribed Zoloft for my OCD and compulsive skin picking...and it helped significantly...except Zoloft induced mania (I'm bipolar) so I had to come off of it immediately.

I take 100mgs of Zoloft per day already. I guess I will have to check into the cbt. i am sure they have it at stl u behavioral center.
