It can be dangerous in some cases because you are constantly re-opening broken skin and this can cause infection.
For the skin near you bellybutton try putting a band aid on it so it reminds you not to scratch/pick at it.
Try other things to keep you hands busy! xoxo
Anon, I would suggest looking into dermatillomania as well - it sounds about right.
i find my cosmic insignificance reassuring
the stars don’t fucking care who i am or what i do
i owe the universe nothing
i exist on my own terms

fellow trans dudes/dfab trans people,
let’s not complain about not getting screen time or media attention, especially if you say “trans women get more media attention”.
trans women, especially black trans women, are a huge target of violence, especially murder. we need to count our blessings that we’re not getting the atttention because we are not getting targeted nearly as much.
Please remember that sometimes silence on an issue or situation isn’t a lack of caring or concern: it’s a form of exhausted self-care as people pull back and try to put themselves back together. Just because I don’t say something about everything doesn’t mean I don’t think it matters. It may mean that I am completely drained from all the things I’m already dealing with, and cannot safely take on another battle.
The same goes for absolutely everyone. Anger is sometimes quiet and sad and silent, because anything else is just beyond you.
