    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.

    It Tastes Like Ear Wax

    My mom would put that stuff on my nails. It was so bitter. How do I know what ear wax tastes like? Well, it wasn't intentional. At least I never ate my boogers.

    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.
