Skin Scratching – What Can I Do?

March 13, 2012

“I have a nervous habit of scratching my skin, to the point that it will bleed, and then I’ll find myself picking off the scabs before they even heal. It’s embarrassing – my friends can’t help but notice since I do it all over my body, on my arms, and even on my face. When I look in the mirror sometimes I’m just so disgusted. I’m stressed right now with school and some relationship stuff – is this why I’m doing this? I really want to stop, but I seem to do it without even realizing it. What is happening to me, and what can I do to fix it?”
