Iím so sorry to hear that @FloatThruThis

We can start again, from afresh! What drives yours?

Iím struggling with mine too.

Iíve been picking my arms and both a colleague and my mum have made comments recently.
I just made stuff up but I was so incredibly embarrassed

Hi Pinny, Iím sorry to hear youíre struggling with this too. Although I gave up on not picking my face, lips, & the skin around my fingernails, I had been going for months leaving my fingernails alone. My trigger to pick at my fingernails was that I had just trimmed them and one was a little ragged. Thatís all it took. What about you?

Aww Iím so sorry, itís so difficult because I donít know about you but sometimes I donít even realise I do it! Until afterwardsÖ
I guess stress is a huge factor for me. Iím always looking for ways to ease my stress but itís hard at the moment as Iím working away from where I live. I donít move jobs for another 2-3 months.

Do you use fidget toys?

Yes, itís like my fingers have a mind of their own. Someone gave me a fidget spinner & I bought myself some playdoh, but theyíre both put away somewhere unused. Have you found fidget toys helpful?

I actually donít, but I do fidget with my phone pop thing and one of my rings. So I think they could be of benefit.
Maybe I should try one!
