Obsession

I’m obsessed with my skin and it has taken over my life. I will never reveal this to anyone because I am truly embarrassed and ashamed. I’ve realized the obsession is a combination of my mild OCD and some strain of Body Dysmorphia Disorder. The worst part is my skin is not bad. I’m overanalyzing to the point of picking at nothing which in turn leaves scars. It sounds so vain but it is beyond that. Only in the last 4 years has it become progressively worse (28 years old). I’m spiralling out of control and already had a three month mental breakdown at this time last year. I had to go to the hospital when I got to a scary place. That experience changed me profoundly and I feel like I will never be the same person. I could be SO MUCH more if this wasn’t holding me back. I would do anything to have the thought of my skin wiped from my brain.
