Dermatillomania: kicking the habit?

Afternoon from sunny England 🙂

If you read my last post, you’ll know that I struggle with compulsive skin-picking, predominantly focused on my thumbs. The only thing that stops me is to cover them with a plaster so I physically can’t pick at them. But these obviously aren’t very robust and can easily fall off. So, I did a bit of rummaging around on the big ole internet and came across someone suggesting silicone thimbles. As luck would have it, whilst in town with my mum this morning, a new sewing shop had opened; with these silicone thimbles in stock! They weren’t cheap at £5.50 each but at least I know they’re sturdy and decent quality. Plus the price doesn’t matter if it helps me kick the habit. I purchased two, put them on and continued with my shopping. To be honest they don’t even look that weird to wear in public. They look slightly medical actually, like mini splints or guards. Maybe I’ll even start a new trend?!

Happy Halloween too! 🎃👻
