Obviously I haven’t been on this blog in months..

Dermatillomania is a constant struggle. It’s a never-ending cycle. Even when I don’t mention it or don’t update this blog or don’t take pictures or whatever, its still happening. I have over one hundred…
Welcome back! It’d be great if you can continue writing on your Tumblr, as much as you can. I take a break often as well, mostly because I do this secretly and don’t want my friends or family to know.

I’ve gone to the doctor or hospital multiple times before I knew I had derma. Once I thought I had a skin infection, another time I thought I had a growth under my skin.

Anyway, glad to have you back.
