Forever Marked: A Dermatillomania Diary
My niece wrote this book. It's a heartbreaking 2006 diary of Angela's struggles with a disorder causing permanent mutilation.
Her purpose for sharing was to reach out to others suffering in silence because very little is known about Dermatillomania besides that it falls under the impulse control disorder umbrella. Unfortunately, those who practice this usually cannot find the proper help, if they seek it at all; their shame isolates them.
If you are interested in reading it, you can contact Angela through her book's Facebook page or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
