Time for honesty....

I didnt know this was a thing until relatively recently. I've been pulling since I was in middle school. It's always the stubbly hairs on my legs after I've shaved, and with sharp tweezers. I also dig out ingrown hairs or hairs beneath the skin. 

I admit that I initially started doing this in an attempt to not self-injure. But now it has taken on a life of its own.
