I do that too I thought I was the only one, I've done it for as long as I can remember but I think I was around three because that is when I got anxiety. When I was really little (like 4) I would chew the skin on the side of my toes.

I do this too...anxiety....isn't it called dermatillomania? Don't bite my nails but they look like shit anyway because the skin around them is always bleeding and scarred. Done it for as long as I can remember

Yup. I use nailclippers on my skin and bite/chew/eat. Gross, but I love it.

I have ugly hands due to compulsive washing anyway, so I don't really mind that the skin arround my nails looks horrible.

I thought that I was the only person who also used nailclippers. Idk but getting a big chunk of skin is somehow satisfying lmao.

I wore gloves when I was at home for months, just so my fingertips could heal after doing this so often. 

my fingers hadn't been round or smooth for agessss.
