I'm 16 years old and I am CONSTANTLY picking and biting my fingers, and I have done for many years. And a couple months ago, my friend told me that I need to stop, as I could get infections and such. But I just told her that Ill be fine, I havn't in the past, so why would I get one now? I can pick and bite till I bleed, and my fingers look absolutley dreadfull. It hurts to write and do things with my hands. And about two months ago I realised 'this is a problem i NEED sorting out'. No one I know does this, so why me? I can't stress enough that i'm ALWAYS doing it. And I really need to stop. It's embarrasing, it's ugly and really confusing. What do I do!?
