    Biting the Nails

    I have a habit of biting my nails. I can't stop. I even bite my nails if I have nail polish on them. Nothing will stop me. I even tried putting fake nails on but it doesn't work. I chew right through them.

    And All the Skin Around Them..

    I often start bleeding because I always bite the skin around my nails away. It looks soo disgusting. But I just can't help it. I always do that when I'm nervous.

    I bite the skin off my lip.... Sometimes. I don't know why. I think I'm just stressed all the time. Or just nervous. Meh. I can't stop biting it off though.
