My girlfriend is the shit.
TIME TO LISTEN UP! I get a lot of asks from people who have Trichotillomania, dermatillomania, nervous habits, nail biting problems and anxiety issues that make them harm their body in an effort to relieve stress. If you do any of those things, you should be paying attention to this post.
This is not a cure, this is a way to help you keep your hands busy.
Remember, idle hands pull strands!!
a spinner ring is a two part ring. The base band and the free spinning band. You can put it on a finger while you’re reading and have a free hand and keep that hand busy by spinning it with your thumb, or you can use both hands. It really helps keep your hands busy.
This ring cost me 12 dollars at the Trichotillomania Learning Center site.
Go do yourself a favor and get one- it has helped me so much.
this startled me to come up on my dash because it’s relevant since i’ve been picking at myself lately since i have a lot of bugbites and things and ugh
this is one of those things i really should get for myself at some point haha j oj
I’ve been thinking of getting one of these since they’re cool, but wow I need this bad now so I can stop picking at everything. It’s not just my skin it’s everything, tape, paint, whatever.
Could also help with other compulsions :)
I used one of these until I gave it to a friend who also suffers anxiety problems last week, I always would spin it slower and slower and try to match my breathing to the speed I was twisting the ring back and forth at to ease myself out of a panic attack
Oh my goodness you realize how much this is going to help me?
I may have to give this a go.
I drive Jenn crazy with how badly I chew the skin on my hands.
