    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Boxerdog. I'm here because I have never recovered from childhood sexual abuse by my Step-Grandfather. I went to another group many years ago but it seemed to me the trauma and pain others had was worse than mine. One young woman brought 20 stuffed animals and surrounded herself with them before she could sit down. One of my sexual parts has never given me pleasure because of Grandpa. I told my husband, don't even bother trying to pleasure me there because it doesn't work. I also have OCD and dermatillomania (scab picking on my scalp). Before I started picking at scabs, I picked cuticles. Before that it was biting the inside of my mouth. I am very sad. My daughter and I do not communicate--or I should say--I send her emails and she doesn't answer them. I haven't seen her in 4 years and she is my only living relative. I am a widow. I am alone on this planet with no family at all. I have three dogs. They are the reason I get up everyday.

    I am in veterinary school so a lot of my stress becomes apparent through my skin picking. I am looking for tips of things to do when listening to lectures that can distract me enough to not pick but allow me to pay attention to the lectures! If anyone has suggestions I am listening hah

    I had a TMS consult today. Will be starting it in August for OCD! And off label C-PTSD as those two disorders are very intertwined for me. I did it for OCD and bipolar depression last year with success. So here’s to hoping it helps again!!

    Small Joys 7/8/2022

    Hey there, world. It's Friday 7/8 and after several weeks of pretty stressful things and big concerns about life and the world and the economy and everything, there are a few things I want to share that made me very happy today.

    First, my cat doesn't actually need the surgeries that I thought he would! He surprised both myself and his vet with responding well to a less invasive medical step. Yay! He's just a baby so not having to put him under anesthesia without absolutely needing to is such a relief!

    Second, Biden signed an executive order to go against SCOTUS's ruling that overturned Roe v Wade. I don't want to get into any sort of debate on here, but I'm just happy to see that reproductive rights are being protected because everyone deserves rights to healthcare and bodily autonomy.

    Third, I got a new fidget ring today and I LOVE it. I have OCD and I always thought that my fidgeting was just from anxiety, but I was also recently diagnosed with adult ADHD and it makes SO much sense. It physically hurts for me to try to stop my body from moving, there is some part of my body that is always moving (toes tapping, legs jiggling, fingers playing or tapping or picking, shifting in my seat). I am SUCH a fidgeter, and recently I decided to look into getting a variety of fidget rings to help try to manage my dermatillomania as I'm tired of making myself bleed. YAY. I ordered 4 different kinds of fidget rings from Etsy. I love all of them!

    Hi, my name is dutchgirl. I'm here because I think I have dermatillomania. I am wanting to learn more about it, how to treat it, and how to manage the shame associated with it. Looking forward to growing with you here.
