I need either a support group here, or some major “help” of the psychological sort. I have a bad habit I’d like to conquer. Don’t ask me why I’m telling the SDMB, but I have to get this off my chest. Maybe none of you “know” me well enough for me to be able to discuss this. But, in general, you’re a rather accomodating bunch, so here goes…
I eat skin flakes.
Yes, my own. Dead skin anywhere? I pick it off. But then…I must, nay, I must eat it. Is this an example of pica? Am I sick? Crazy? Either way, it’s starting to bother me. My skin looks terrible now, but I just can’t stop! I must, I really must. I am starting to do this in public, even.
Am I alone? How do I stop? Is it hopeless? People of the SDMB, I humbly appeal to you in regards to my weird, disgusting habit, and feel free to share one of your own, especially if you kicked it eventually.
