This just in!

SO, I am working on my website when I come to a recent article about how skin picking is now defined as its own disorder.  This has been a long time coming my friends, really.

However, the elephant on the page is the “9 Things We Shouldn’t Pick or Pop”.  Really?  So lets write an article on how this is a mental disorder and aggravate things further by shoving in down your throat that you shouldn’t be doing it.  It’s like saying, here – you have an issue and we know that but you need to stop and here is why.  As if us skin pickers don’t already know we are damaging our skin and have high risks for infection.

However, I do like that they noted the genetic “vulnerability” of the disorder and wish they would dive into the link of it being learned as well.  Most people I know that pick have seen others pick to deal with stress or have been picked at by others.  Overall, I guess I am just glad that awareness is rising.
