YOU ARE NOT ALONE: REAL LIFE STORIES
Anonymous Notes From Picky People – Brazen
I used to avoid picking in public. I would never do it in my car for fear someone would see me. But recently I have become more brazen in my choice of picking places. I have picked in public bathroom where anyone could walk in at a moment’s notice. I don’t spend a lot of time picking in public, but if the urge hits and no one is around – I’ll just go for it.
I have also picked in the car now. Only I do it when I am driving and the odds of someone else taking their eyes off the road and catching me are slim. Also if I time it just right and make sure no one is driving parallel to me (right next to me so they could see in). But I have wondered if someone driving in front of me is looking in their rear view mirror and catching me pick.
I am worried about my picking while I drive. I have taken risky chances now and then and been lucky. I have this vision of getting into an accident because I am pre-occupied with picking while I drive. I know this is really dangerous.
As far as the public bathrooms, now I live in fear that someone might walk in and catch me in the act. But the desire to ‘work’ on my face outweighs the fear of discovery.
Actually – maybe I am just waiting for someone to walk in because I am looking to be shamed out of my bad habit? Maybe I want to get in an accident so I will finally hit my bottom and be absolutely forced to stop picking?
