The Challenge today is to write about:
"What You Wore Today"
What I wore today is pretty much what I wear everyday.
Denim jeans and either a T-shirt, long sleeved T-shirt, a sweatshirt or a hoodie, all depending on the weather.
Working from home doesn't require a large wardrobe which is great.
I don't go to places that require anything "nicer" than that. I don't go anywhere that requires a dress, shorts, tank top or bathing suit either.
All because of my dermatillomania, which I've had for over 30 years. Over the last several years the scars have become harder and harder to heal. I've tried various things to stop but nothing works. Medications just does the opposite and exacerbates it instead.
This is the same reason why I don't take "selfies" and have stopped making YouTube videos.
Sometimes I don't even know I'm doing it until I'm told to stop by a family member. I feel embarrassed and ashamed and start picking again to feel better and the whole viscous cycle starts again.
Well crap, I just self-sabotaged my whole day. What started as an innocent question turned into an emotional revelation and now I'm worn out.
