So I have a stress acne picking problem. I was unsure if I ever wanted to fess up and post this on here but since I am doing so well with displaying my weight loss on line on my other blog (tawnasplan.blogspot.com) I am thinking that maybe posting my struggle with the picking problem may help me quit.
Below you will see a picture that I posted on my weight loss blog after my 30 pound loss. If you look at my arm you can see some red/brown marks all over it. Well that is nothing but acne and not just flared up acne but actual scars too.
Someone asked me the other night if it was bug bites and I could have lied but I told her what it really was. I have been embarrassed about it for years but I need to stop doing it so I am hoping be honest about it may help me refrain from doing it anymore.
The problem is that I get stressed out about money, marriage, time management, etc and I find a small tiny bit of acne on my arms and I pick it to death. I have not always done this but with the house going into forecloser and the lack of sleep etc. I am finding it real hard to stop.
Any suggestions (besides therapy) please let me know. I am too poor to pay anyone and I need to stop this on my own. Hay, if I can battle and eating disorder on my own with close family 14 years ago then I can battle this right?
Here is the picture taken a couple weeks ago
