i cut for 5 years everyday. its been 3 years since ive done it last. i thought i was through this. but recently i started Picking at the skin on my fingertips and all over my hands. like cutting, i do it until it bleeds. I dont want to stop. i love it. i get such a relief from it. but as soon as i feel like the anxiety is gone and ive finished picking. i feel depressed. im so ashamed of what ive done to myself, it gets so bad it then causes me to do it some more. the same as it was with cutting. ITS NEVER ENDING. but i cant stop. i cant. Is this addiction or obsession? are they the same?
