I found cognitive therapy expensive but really helpful. It helps you find the root cause that triggers that behavior. Also asking for medicaton that thins the scarring has helped me.

Yep. I have since I was little, before I can even remember. It’s just something I’ve always done. I pick at the skin on the sides of my thumbs CONSTANTLY, to the point that they’re bloody and aching and I have to stop because it hurts so bad. But while that spot’s healing I’ll start a new section right next to it. It drives Fiance nuts and I was never really conscious of it until I started dating him — I knew I did it, but it was just a part of me, so I never really thought much of it.

I’m in therapy now to work on some anxiety issues and I’m hoping to work on the skin picking thing while I’m there. I really want to have pretty-looking thumbs by the time of the wedding 🙂 I definitely don’t want my gross habit photographed in our rings-on-hands shot haha.
