So I have some bad habits. Most parts do. I’ll write a couple of main ones here.
Me – Bonny. Skin picking, particularly fingers, cuticles and mainly around nails. So much until they are painful, and bleed. It’s a habit I do without even realising I am.
Bee. Scratches when sad. Just scratches skin over and over. Not particularly hard but the continuous scratching in one place tend to break skin after a while.
So I’m aware thesr are bad habits. I can’t stop Bees, but I can try help myself and after a lot of tellings of a mocking from people about my weird fingers, I’m trying to stop. It’s hard!
My fingers were real bad. Real sore too. I’ve picked my fingers for soooo long that my nails actually grow weird. My thumb nails are particularly bad.
Last weekend my stepsons gf painted my nails and she commented how bad they were. My SO has been commenting on how bad they were. How nasty they looked. So yeah I’m trying to stop doing it.
When they first said that I picked more. I think it’s a anxiety thing, but I’m really trying now. Although I’m not being perfect. It’s been about a week. Since day or so before I posted the pic of my nails painted.
I hope I can quit doing it and not be ashamed anymore.
Any stress though and it’s my first thing to do. It’s habit. It’s all I have.
Wish me luck…..
