Dirty Little Secret!

So…..I have a confession to make……I am a “picker”! I love painting my nails, I never have naked nails and I always do them myself every week. It is something I enjoy having fun nails…… But the secret is I can’t get them done even if I wanted to because this is too embarrassing! At any given time 2 or more of my nails/fingers will look like this above. I don’t want to do it but I just can’t stop! I will pull a piece of cuticle/skin and it wont hurt right then but it will bleed, I get mad at myself then the poor little digit will have a fever and its own heartbeat. It’s a evil cycle! I pick when I am stressed, scared, upset and anxious……so I guess you can always tell how my life if going by looking at my hands! It’s gross huh? My Mom is gonna be mad I showed you all this for sure! I swear it is insane how everyday when I shower, do dishes or wash my face 1 or more of my fingers is in constant pain! I am such a weirdo!
Does anyone else do this? Growing up I bit my nails off and frankly since I like my nails short I would rather go back to biting then this bloody mess above!
Do you have something you do when you are stressed? Something you hate but can’t stop doing?

    I bite them instead of pick, but my fingers look about the same. A horrible habit I have had since the 4th grade!

    I do the same thing when I am stressed. It is worse in the winter when my hands are dry. It drives my husband crazy!

    I think we all have dirty little secrets. I'll admit…I am a nose picker. I cannot help it..when I feel a bat in the cave, I have to set him free ;D Maybe this should be our Resolutios for 2013…to stop these nasty habits. (OMG! I cannot believe I just told you I was a nose picker.)

    I am cuticle picker too. Just last night I picked and it was bleeding horribly. My daughter started pointing and freaking out. It's so embarrassing but I just can't stop.
