I tore my fingernails off down to the quick again last Sunday. I was picking at my toenails and my fingernails started to tear off and thatís all she wrote. I was doing okay in leaving my healing fingernails alone to grow back this week, but I went to a family gathering this afternoon and started picking at my fingernails and the skin around them again. Now Iím home and I donít want to stop picking at themÖ It feels too good in the moment, but so painful and embarrassing later on. I have such a love hate relationship with this compulsive little behavior of mine. Oh well, there are worse problems to have. If I just leave them alone for two weeks they will heal themselves.
