I've had a terrible skin picking problem for the past decade and have recently been trying to stop. I went without picking for a few weeks and all was good until I had some acne appear and now I'm sitting here with two big red spots on my face because I couldn't resist the urge to pick. All my progress went down the drain. What can I do to stop these urges once and for all nonnies? I'm feeling real desperate. I don't know how to stop.

No. 317274

Okay thanks both of you, my siblings used to tease me about my strawberry nose and then I got acne so my understanding of what good skin is is a bit wack. I'm starting to feel addiction creeping back as I watch more videos and product reviews, which are basically ads, I should stop now, keep doing my routine every day and enjoy my blemish-free skin.

Can't help but think I have some discoloration around my mouth though

I have/had a big nail picking problem and I guess it is similar. I managed twice to stop for a full year and then it came back more viciously than ever, but every time I manage to stop it gets easier to stop again and for longer time periods. So you didn't lose all your progress and your skin always has the capability to heal. What works for me is 1) using creams so there is not a lot to pick at or that if I do pick it will calm down quickly, so for you it could be having a good routine that can manage your acne when it appears and soothes it when you picked.
2)From my understanding a lot of anxious or compulsive behaviors stem from some kind emotional misregulation and you should treat it as such. So legit using meditation techniques like breath awareness when I feel the urge to pick, sometimes bargaining with myself that I will pick my nails in 10 minutes until my bad mood passes, try to be less stressed in general.

Good luck nonnie

No. 317298

Thank you nonnie. I completely understand the nail problem. It plagued me until a year ago when I stopped abruptly out of shame, because I didn't want a friend I was going to meet to see them like that. The urges to bite have gone away so far and have instead been replaced with disgust at the idea, and I hope it stays that way. I'm just waiting for the shame to set in with my skin picking problem as well, I think that's the only thing that's gonna make me stop for real, that shame of having to go outside after a particularly bad picking episode. But it's so hard, especially when it's the only way I've known how to deal with acne ever. I will try breath awareness, now that I think about it it sounds like a pretty good way to manage it. I'm almost jealous of how clear your skin is, now that one side of my face has cleared up I am showing off scars from years of picking kek.

Since you're already using BHA and a cleansing oil I don't think there's anything you can do to make your pores smaller. Double cleansing perhaps? The "bumpiness" (invisible in the pic btw) could be closed comedones. Literally any product in your routine could cause them if you're prone to clogging (aside from the BHA obviously). My skin can't stand silicones and I can only use heavy moisturizers/oils a few times a week. Double cleansing could potentially help here, but it could just be the way your skin is.

No. 317429

For me it helped getting into skincare. Buying fancy nice products and being excited to try them out. Basically getting something positive related to my skin.

No. 317519

No, not really. After I found out the nice girl I was seeing was a neurotic schizo level neat freak and severely borderline around 6 months into the whole thing I decided to be very careful in the future. Has saved me from a lot of headache. They say that people should go on a trip with the person they're dating to see if you're realistically comparable because you're stuck in the same space in an unfamiliar environment together and I usually go by that.

No. 317596

Ok well idk about all that, in my area people are forthcoming about their mental issues and at my age it's not a big deal to just escalate a relationship because people lay their cards on the table. If you're a poor judge of character or attract manipulative people I can see why you'd need to be extra careful. As I said in an earlier post, in my city people usually have roommates so you're gonna run into way worse behavior regardless.

No. 317606

I don't know where you live but where I'm from it's seen as really weird and a huge red flag to move in with your partner after just a few months of dating. Usually people won't move together until they're really serious about their relationship being long term. Everyone I know didn't start living together until they had dated for at least a year, usually more.

Im on my fourth week of cipralex after my second breakdown, had one two years ago and was put on zoloft because I was too nauseaous. Took a week, but then I was slicing myself up like nobodys business. It's like the antidepressants have removed some form of guilt-based block in my head, and now I just keep physically punishing myself. I honestly don't remember these compulsions when I started zoloft 2 years ago? Then again I'm having so many intrusive creative impulses, I'm wondering if the SH is just like a half-stage between hating myself and being normal?

Anybody had a feeling last for over a decade? I guess this is who I am now.
A decade ago, when I was 16, I felt my brain broke. I remember sitting in math class, knowing I was gonna fail the course, and I just sat there with a feeling that I cannot shake. I am 26, and although, I managed to graduate college and get a job, I can barely function. I spend my time not working on the couch, my hair is a nest, and I am exhausted all the fucking time. My insurance is garbage so I cant afford therapy. I am drowning and I want to fucking die everyday. I do not even know what will make me happy, everything feels like a task, that I just need to get over.

same for me. only difference is i actually didn't attain any sort of success in my life. i'd say be glad you finished college and got a job as i am extremely jealous. i actually get a bit angry when i read posts like yours. because you probably just have a chemical imbalance you can treat. but me? i knew i wouldn't be successful and it became true. so this might be comforting to you: you're not a failure. people like myself are. you can do it. you have a chance at a happy life. i'm not saying you should be grateful, but you got better chances at it than people like me.

There isn't a j-fashion thread anymore so here's one. Talk about tips, makeup, hair tutorials, coords, jfash in general etc.

Pic related has cute makeup (though it's personally too much for me, I don't wear lenses). I usually prefer the very girly look for clothes (ruffly skirts, blouses, long socks, "kawaii" high heels, blouses, cardigans, lots of pink and white, etc) but it's almost always too over the top for me to wear in real life :(

Does your balcony get plenty of sun? If so, you can grow tomatoes. Last year I put a bunch of extra seedlings of a determinate/bush cherry tomato variety in big flower pots I had left over and I was surprised at how well they did. They didn’t grow very big and didn’t need any support, but were quite productive.

I'm in an apartment that gets partial sun, so I re-grow grocery store green onions by using their roots. CVS sold windowsill herb garden kits a few months back, so maybe you can find similar herb-starter kits. Basil is easy for sure. Seeds from grocery store bell peppers grow p fast and I just put them in soil from the start. They need a lot of water.

No. 317036

I'm from Eastern Europe. Spinach and radish sounds interesting, I may start with it. Pumpkin is too big for my small balcony unfortunately.
Yes, my balcony gets a lot of sun but I will pass tomatoes, they trigger my IBS, but thanks for recommendation. Maybe if my IBS will calm down I will try to grow it.
>I re-grow grocery store green onions by using their roots
oh fuck you're genius! I will try that too, it sounds easy to take care of.
>herb-starter kits
Oh, that's good idea too, I will check it out.

I think I will go to the gardening store and just ask for any ideas and instructions. Also it seems like growing herbs and vegetables is easier than growing fruits. The best choice for my small balcony is growing from berry family fruits. Strawberry, blackberry or berry. I will give it a thought, but I want to grow at least one fruit.

You should definitely be able to grow strawberries if your balcony gets a lot of sun. Other berries too, if you have the space and big enough containers. Strawberries can be grown in relatively small containers compared to other berries. I once saw someone who had their whole balcony railing covered in hanging containers with strawberries. I’m not sure how they didn’t all get eaten by birds, though, since they weren’t covered with anything.

Ok retarded anon. All of what you're experiencing is very normal, but if you have it quite severely you may have PMDD. I find what helps me is a generally healthier lifestyle. Eat more nutritious food, cut down on your alcohol consumption, stop smoking. Time your exercise with your cycle - do more high intensity exercise when you're in the first phase of your cycle and have more energy, transition to chilled exercise like walking, yoga and pilates with your luteal phase. As for supplements, if you have some kind of vitamin deficiency you'll definitely feel worse during your period and PMS so it may be worthwhile looking at your vitamin D, iron and B12 levels, even if just for your general health. Otherwise, you can look at taking magnesium, omega 3, evening primrose oil. All of this won't eradicate your pms, but it might help lessen it. You have to learn to live in sync with the shitty effects of your cycle and be mindful of it.

No. 316849

When you menstruate, not only is estrogen lower than in other phases of the menstrual cycle (and this affects your energy and mood as well), but since you lose a lot of blood it makes you iron levels drop, which obviously makes you more fatigued. It's completely normal and if you don't eat enough foods with iron in your regular diet to compensate, you can get anemia over time. Of course, if you already have an iron-rich diet (complemented with vitamin C), then you could be bleeding more than the average which would cause even more fatigue, but if your symptoms are truly unbearable to the point every time you are about to have your period you literally can't work or go to school, you might have PMS. Just being aware of these hormonal changes and how your period affects your vitamin and mineral levels can prepare you to deal with the effects of menstruation and make it more tolerable and easier to deal with.
I don't know how you haven't learned or noticed this in the 5 years you've allegedly been capable of menstruation, or how you're posting here when you're obviously pretty young, but I'm choosing to believe you are an 18 year old woman who started to menstruate at 13 and had a really shitty sexual education or whose female family members were absent or just ignorant/prudish.
Now promise you'll stop posting in such a retarded way

No. 316926

Ah anon…this was so helpful. I don't drink or smoke but I will try to pick up omega 3, iron and b12 supplements. I'm going to start tracking it, and living in sync like you said
Alright, I'm going to get more iron in. Nawww i didn't really hear much about periods, was embarrassed to talk about it.

How often do you guys change a cup out during heavy flow? I never had a problem until now but I guess I've been having heavier flow recently because I can't go more than like 4 hours without it getting super full and leaking. Or maybe I'm not inserting it correctly…? I'm not sure whats happening. My last 3 periods were fine and it worked like a charm. Its difficult for me to change it constantly while im at school because I either have long classes back to back or the bathrooms I can use are fucking mixed gender (thanks university.) So I get uncomfortable using it. Should I just switch to pads or something for heavier flow days?

I think I have the ability to orgasm internally but I haven't "unlocked" it yet. When my bf fingers me I can literally feel the build like I do when I rub my clit but I've not been able to "get" there. I find it very hard to orgasm clitorally when in front of someone in general, for a few reasons (clit isn't that sensitive, autism and I get too over-stimulated to focus on pleasure, previous SA trauma so hard to totally let go in the moment.)
I'm wondering if there are other nonnies out there who went from being not all that sensitive in general to finding that they can orgasm in ways they didn't expect, how they were able to reach it, etc. I'm mostly past the trauma aspect, so I honestly just think it's a combination of stage fright, over-stimulation, and being an uptight person in general that it's hard to totally relax.
