Biting my nails
Monday, August 05, 2013
For a challenge on one of my teams I have to work on something and this is my vice...would you call it a vice?? Dr. Pepper is a vice, smoking is a vice, but is nail biting?
I hate to admit such a terrible habit, but I have learned that other adults also bite their nails...I'm not alone!!
I had an injury to my left hand and couldn't turn my hand over to bite the nails. Who else can say their injury was for the good. For whatever reason, I also let my nails on my right hand grow too. That was last year. I have managed to let my FINGER nails grow, not so the thumb nails. As long as I bite the thumb nails I know I haven't beat the habit.
They say it is some underlying reason, lbut maybe so when I was a kid, but I think after all this time it has just become a habit. It isn't because I'm watching a scary movie (which I'm trying not to watch any more) or worry, I just bite without realizing it. Then when I do notice wht I am doing, I go ahead and finish the job, have to get that sharp piece of nail off.
I need to work on this. I could have used getting over my fear of spiders for this challenge, but I'm not ready to go there.
