You're amazing and it's true
thebeargirlwhostoleyoursoul-dea asked: Thank you for the follow hun. What a lovely inspiring blog! I'm tempted to make a separate one for the dermatillomania / other mental fuckedupperies, but well, I'm indecisive, and lazy. Anyway, nice to meet you (:
This weekend I’m making lots of plans with friends so that I’m less likely to pick. I also miss my friends a lot. this way I won’t be sitting on my ass. Tomorrow my friend A and I are going to a music festival. I can’t wait. have fun, see the world, and embrace life, I’m sure you’ll love it :)

Reblog if you're embarrassed of your weight or how...
More my skin than my weight, but yes. I hope to not be embarrassed eventually though.
My dermatology appointment is in October.
I’m going to consult about getting laser hair removal covered by insurance, since having hair on my legs is causing too many problems for me. If I am able to get it, hopefully it will stop the infections and the sensory problems. Regardless of how many scars are on my legs, I would like to not have to cover them all the time. I would like to not be in pain, and be able to flaunt my scars...
It is unfortunate that skin that is not milky smooth is seen as flawed. Everybody would be able to show that they are “flawed” if they felt comfortable with it, since we all have these flaws. A stigma gets removed by those who are willing to show that what is perceived as beautiful is not the only option. There are all types of skin out there, all types of body types, all skin...
DAY TWENTY : “ME” TIME This is a tricky one - most people with derma/trich do most of their damage when they are alone, enjoying some solitude. Today’s challenge is about the healthy things we do to escape our life a bit and give our brains a rest. What activities are so consuming and pleasurable that you cannot think of a time when you picked/pulled when you were there? I have an...
i-have-dermatillomania asked: Hey! Are you doing the 30 day trich/derma challenge? If so, can you post a list of all the questions? I'm doing the one that dermatillomaniac and sublimeflaw are doing, but neither of them posted a blog with all of the questions on it. I'd be forever grateful if you posted them! Thank you!! <3
YOU are beautiful in every way possible.
evilskies: Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
DAY NINETEEN : OLDER AND WISER You have come so far and shared your struggle with the world in person to your most trusted friends and family, and online with the derma/trich tumblr network. If you could go back to the first day that you can remember picking/pulling, what would you say to your younger self? From what I can recall, I wasn’t really thinking the first day I had a...

My skin is confusing. My face and arms look awesome; however, my legs are a different story. While they’re healing, they are very sore. I have no open wounds on my legs, but there’s pimply eczema all over. Mild rash. It happens when I don’t get enough sleep, or when my period is coming. I just need to stay strong and not pick. I unintentionally scratch my legs sometimes, but if...
