Shin Picking

i have beeen picking / biteing the skin around my fingers since i was 5 yrs old. i am now 27. my fingers are deformed so much so as when i broke a finger as a teenager the doctors asked me if they were natural deformaties! they are not. i have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety and am wondering if i have always ahd these. i pick and bite until they bleed i do not seem to feel any pain. i hardly have any finger prints left on some fingers and it makes me ashamed. i have only just found out what i do has a medical name. i feel so bad.
