I am new to this page and i guess im not sure what to really say but here goes. I have had anxiety for years now and prior to that was diagnosed with depression. I was in therapy for a while and honestly I could not find help from it or at least comfort. With time and a very positive mind shift my urges to harm myself subsided however now my anxiety and overthinking has kicked in. Prior I would twirl my hair and my boyfriend would instantly know something is in my head but now my anxiety makes me pick at my skin or search for any pimple as a sign of comfort and stress release. I have tried to escape or try to keep myself busy but I find myself always picking and not realizing this. Im just scared that itll shift again and instead of picking at my skin im hurting myself. Has anyone else felt this one?
