For some reason reading these forum postings make me laugh... I think it's just shocking and comforting to me that there are other people going through the same thing. So that got me to thinking, does anybody else have stories that are somewhat amusing (or at least not depressing)? Mine goes like this: When I was in middle school, I did marching band, and I had the same thumb picking problem I've always had, but I also randomly had this wart develop on my left hand left-most knuckle. So I start picking that for some reason, and I remember soo many times that thing would bleed, so I'd vow to stop, but then I'd get right back to picking it when it started healing. Well, to this day I still have my old white marching band gloves, and there's a tiny blood stain on the left-most knuckle. But the wart has long since disappeared! It's sort of amusing to me somehow. Does anybody else have funny or weird stories about their past picking failures or successes?
