I just discovered this site today and didn't realize that all my odd compulsions fit all together. I pick at my cuticles until they bleed, and sometimes it's on all sides of my fingers, currently it's my thumbs. I've attempted fake nails, and just like everyone else, it's only temporary. Picking on my toes has reduced, but has caused many ingrown toe nails and painful walking. I also pull my split ends out or split them more. I can do those for hours. At night, I spend a lot of time either popping anything I can find that looks like it can be popped and pulling out tiny hairs on my stomach or breasts (does anyone else do this, by the way?). This takes up a lot of time and seems also impossible to pull away from. So basically, what does someone do for MANY compulsions?
