Unmedicated cult member’s mental disorder out of control

Excoriation disorder (also known as dermatillomania, skin-picking disorder, neurotic excoriation, acne excoriee, pathologic skin picking (PSP), compulsive skin picking (CSP) or psychogenic excoriation) is a mental disorder characterized by the repeated urge to pick at one’s own skin, often to the extent that damage is caused. It is defined as “repetitive and compulsive picking of skin which results in tissue damage.”

Treatment
There are several different classes of pharmacological treatment agents that have some support for treating excoriation disorder: (1) SSRIs; (2) opioid antagonists; and (3) glutamatergic agents. In addition to these classes of drugs, some other pharmacological products have been tested in small trials as well.

Prognosis
Typically, individuals with excoriation disorder find that the disorder interferes with daily life. Hindered by shame, embarrassment, and humiliation, they may take measures to hide their disorder by not leaving home, wearing long sleeves and pants even in heat, or covering visible damage to skin with cosmetics and/or bandages. Activities such as typing may be painful for those who pick at their fingers or hands, or walking for those who pick at the soles of their feet

I spent the last 7 days in the mental health hospital because of the difficulties with my severe anxiety. I do believe it helped a little but not very much. I am out now and look forward to every window I get. This whole journey would be so much harder by my self. Thanks buddies.

It relaxes me a bit but it can only be taken for a short period. I’ve also noticed that all the “calming” herbs etc. will turn on me after a few days, leaving me more anxious etc. I’m still trying to find a stack that works for me, because we are all different.
