Wow thank you so much for responding, Cheesus!
Looking dermatillomania up was a real surprise- I fit the symptoms entirely, and the first picture on Wikipedia... That man's sores are very familiar to me, though not as extensive on my own body.
Actually, I do see a psychologist every other week. I started after I had something like a mental/nervous breakdown at the beginning of the year. However, I've never told her nor my sweetheart GP about the extent of my problem. It's a really difficult thing for me to talk about, not to mention I am terrified of either of them thinking that I am over dramatic, overreacting, or an attention-starved teenager putting on an act. Which might sound stupid, but these two ladies are the only people I go to with my problems in the world. If I lost their belief or trust, I just do not know what I would do.
However, after seeing that there are other people in the world with this problem, maybe it is something I should discuss.
Strangely enough, my GP has already suggested talking to my psychologist about Cognitive Behavioral therapy, though I don't know for what reason exactly. I had forgotten until now, so thank you for that as well!
Just thank you so much for your incredibly helpful and super supportive input. I appreciate it so sincerely. My next appt with my psychologist is next week, and I will not will not chicken out about bringing this up. Wow I feel like I owe you a lot or something. Thank you for taking me seriously and being great ;u;
