Hair and skin picking: I have to talk about this: Part 2

This is the continuation of the hair pulling and skin picking behavior I have. I looked up on Google to try and see why I do this, because I have not always done it. It said it is classified under the heading of OCD but is a disorder by itself.

I know, as a former nurse that picking with my fingers is a dangerous thing because of staff germs and other forms of bacteria and even fungi. We all are covered with bacteria and fungus whether we think about it or not. However, I am not thinking about this at the time I am doing it.

When Yahoo crashed I lost a lot of income and that is when I noticed this behavior. However I have adjusted my finances so I don’t need to depend on online income, yet I still do it.

One thing said online was that the behavior can be caused by repressed feelings that one needs to talk about but doesn’t. Like I said, it started with yahoo, but it didn’t end there. There is something bothering me. Our precious dog Ranger died. I want a puppy to have and hold and give love to it and receive love in return. My daughter is not ready for a dog and doesn’t want one. This weighs heavy on my mind.

You just took another brave step, but I still feel you need some proper help with this, there´s obviously a lot going on that you need to sort out.
