About Myself

I have OCD. I used to be on pills, but I stopped taking them because they generally made me feel like a zombie. My condition does manifest itself from time to time, but I now know how to control it by myself, for the most part, and stop myself before it gets too bad.

My main symptom(s) is pulling off layers of my own skin, anywhere that it's flaking, or blistered, or if there's a painful or unsightly pimple. That on it's own wouldn't be too bad, but once I start, I can't stop, because my brain registers the left-over loose skin of the edges as another blemish to remove, and so on. Needless to say, it's not exactly a very good feeling (or look, for that matter, since it's happened to my face on multiple occasions) later on.
However, I now regularly use lotion and acme cream to stop my triggers from showing up in the first place.
