My name is Marianne Mychaskiw, and I'm an obsessive skin-picker. Perhaps "obsessive" isn't exactly the right word anymore — my talent of turning a mole hill into a mountain has plagued me for over a decade, but I've gotten much better about my habit since my high school years.

I would spend over an hour poking and prodding in front of the mirror.
