The painful habit of picking your fingers raw
4/21/2006 7:50:46 AM
I have been ashamed to share this secret with anyone, but now, I just want relief.
I almost shudder to think I am about to expose my most ugly habit to the world, but here goes. I have had the nervous habit of picking the skin around my fingers since I was .... maybe 10 from what I remember. The only reason I can remember so far back is that my mother and sister's would hit my hands, telling me to stop what I was doing. Now at the age of 42, my mother is still slapping my fingers and telling me to stop.

Oddly, it has been on my yearly goal list for as far back as I can remember. I am embarrassed to show my hands in public and many times it is very painful, especially in the winter months. I apply creams, make threats to myself but nothing seems to work. I know that I am not the only one hiding this secret and I hope that maybe someone can send me the cure or at least what has worked for him or her.

I start out each day saying I will not pick at the skin around my fingers today and by the time I got to bed, my fingers are sore. As Dr. Phil would ramble, you must be getting something out of it or you would not be doing it. Therefore, I shut him off, and got relief from him immediately. I have heard it must release some anxiety that I am having. I am happier than I have ever been in my life so I really do not understand this habit anymore.

I often think I have found the solution when I do a manicure and paint my nails. This lasts for a few days then forget about it.

Love & Peace,
Rebecca
