#PickingMe founder and Support Group leader Lauren McKeaney

Lauren has lived with Dermatillomania for over 27 years and knows firsthand the struggles of having this disorder. Not only has she experienced countless infections and complications due to Skin Picking, in 2013 Lauren contracted MRSA as a result from a picked area. And she most recently received double-hand surgery in 2019 from severe carpal tunnel, a side effect on her hands after years of picking. Lauren understands what you're going through and that's why she's dedicated to helping you receive the recognition you deserve. She works to make you feel most comfortable and has a plethora of knowledge on different strategies she's tried firsthand. Here at #PickingMe we're more than a nonprofit, we are a community. And we're excited to meet you!
