"This is me, going to extremes to keep myself from compulsively picking at my skin. I've been picking my face since I was about 14 years old. I do it without thinking and it's caused me to cancel plans and be embarrassed to leave the house. Up until recently I hadn't picked for a good few months but things change. Stress. Fast forward to now, as embarrassing as it can be, this is my reality. Just waiting to see my scars disappear. I've got hope though and you should too!" -Adlih, 22, Pennsylvania, @inretrograde
