A year ago today I posted about my attempt to stop biting my fingernails. Let’s check in with me and see how I’m doing at it.
The good news is, I haven’t bitten my fingernails in all this time. The bad news is, I’ve done just about everything shy of that. I still constantly fidget with them, pick at them, and put them in my mouth. It’s almost worse because at least when I bit them I did that and that was the end of it.
I have to trim them constantly because if they get even a little bit uneven or “sharp” I will mess with them relentlessly. If they get too long they’ll also get messed with. Again, everything just shy of actually pulling them off with my teeth.
I am hoping that this phase too shall eventually pass and soon I’ll just be a normal person.
