    got a ? My therapist says my skin picking habit is a form of Self Harm.

    I don't agree with it. I just think its a bad habit. I don't feel anything when I pick those scabs on my face arms and back. maybe just relief just because its itchy. I don't focus on parts of my legs or stomach or lower part of arm cuz no bumps are there for me to make it worse, I just swear its not related to my emotion hence me saying it's not self harm.

    Yes my upper arms, back and face are full of scars old and new shinny white like a ghost of the scar that could have been left alone or red.

    There's a topic somewhere that says skin picking is psychological and has a name for it. I forgot where I read it from, but that's what I vaguely remember.
