ಠ_ಠ Tough

Picky Nicki


Hi Everyone,

I apologise for the absence the last few days, I have been working a lot and thus been incredibly tired; the disgusting humidity doesn't help things.

I am going to keep this pretty brief so that I can sleep soon.... I feel like an Old lady. :P

Today is the fifth day of my journey and I have to say that since day three, things have been much more difficult that I would have thought. It was my understanding that the first days were the hardest and then things eased up, however the first two days were relatively easy and things are becoming steadily more difficult as the urge to pick increases.

My skin looks much better, the scabs have all but vanished and healed very nicely, though I am deeply saddened by the discovery of small scars. I didn't listen and I scarred myself. (I feel very ashamed)

But while my skin looks better, that doesn't mean that its cleared up dramatically. There is still a lot of acne across my forehead, temples and cheekbones.

I am trying not to touch or pick, I have been more successful at not picking than not touching. Today was particularly hard, because while I wouldn't give in and pick my face, I began to search for other things to pick at in order to relieve the anxiety that was building up..... ಠ_ಠ I feel like I'm withdrawing off drugs......

My wrist is bruised due to the constant snapping of the elastic (which hasn't left my wrist since I put it on) and I'm getting very tired of snapping this stupid thing.

I know things will get better. I just tell myself, "Tough titties, Nick! Think of the long and tough it out."

And so, I'll do just that!
