    I Can't Stop Chewing And Picking My Fingers

    Please help. Do I need to see a doctor? It gets bad then I go through good phases. At its worst, I can't show my hands to people. I chew and peel the skin under and around my nails, and the skin on the palmside under the uppermost joint of each finger and thumb. I've done it...

    For As Long As I Can Remember

    I have chewed my fingers all my life, and I still do it. I'm 54 years old. I use my teeth to pull the dead skin off my fingers around the fingernails, and I eat it. I know it is a bad, nasty habit, but I have not been able to break it. When I was a kid, my parents painted my...

    I also don't like to watch some people eat. There are those that take too big of bites and stretch their mouths wide open to get it all in. Puh-lease! Take smaller bites.

    Why? Why do they have to be so loud? How does no one else hear them or get bothered by them?
