I am a skin picker since I was nine or so. My father does it as well.
I have been recently diagnosed with Bipolar Type II disorder. I think my Psychiatrist has made a mistake.
I am mostly restless, with lots of energy. I am also very emotional. I have cry spells. I start several things at once I never know which one to finish. My mind is always racing. But I do have low moments. It"s hard for me to know my moods in a given month so now I will write everything down, well as much as I can. My train of thoughts hahahaha. Crazy! I loose track of what I am saying and jump all over the place with so much in my head. Is everyone like this?
I do pick my scalp and sometime I pull my hair. I normally have sore in my scalp. I don"t get my hair done at the beauty parlor as is embarrassing that people can see my sores. I hate to make my scalp bleed but it is Oh, so soothing while I do it. But then Crap! I hate myself for hurting my scalp. At night I go on line when in bed with my hubby (God bless him!) and he says "Don't poke" or "Don't scratch" and I feel like I wanna kick his butt
I know I get sad and happy but sad is not the rule. Angry, restless, is the norm.
So... any in puts please?
