Does anyone have little things they do because of their anxiety? Like pick the skin around your nails or something like that, I pick the top layer of skin off my lip.

      I usualy chew my nails to the point It hurts cause I usualy reach the edge vessel part. Ive recently been trying to stop doing this cause the pain. But Ive been doing it for so long its a pain to actualy stop, sence is now a bad habit to calm me down.

      There’s so much I don’t know where to start. I usually bite the skin off my fingers, my nails, and I also pace around the room for no reason sometimes.

      I stim with my hands , waving them up and down or I sway back and forth . It's a mixture of that fuzzy feeling in your belly that makes me want to sway and push on my pelvic bone .

      Oh definitely! I pick at the skin on my lips, sometimes to the point of blood. I also have a bad habit of twisting and pulling on my fingers.

      I have some adult acne so I sometimes feel a barely there bump my legs, my face and my arms especially. I get acrylic nails to lessen the damage. Lip biter and skin picker off my lips. It’s definitely more of a compulsion for me I truly can’t stop myself from doing it

        @Freya83 I'm that way when it comes to picking my lips. I try so hard to stop but most of the time I dont even realize I'm doing it till I catch myself

      Yes, I pull on stands of hair from my head. Not enough to pull the the hair out but enough to give me some sorness. It's satisfying but it hurts and gives me headaches 😪

      Ooh yes! I pull my lips in over my teeth, as if I were making an exaggerated "mmm" sound, and press them together. Hard. The insides of my lips are usually cut and raw from my teeth pressing into them. It's not a cute face, either 🫤

      I also pick the skin off of my lips. I hate it so much. I always have to keep chapstick with me so that something protects the raw skin. Other than the lip picking, I tend to scratch at my scalp.

        @bugger same here, chapstick has become a close friend of mine over the years lol

        @packersfan95 I've been picking my lip for as long as I remember and I just recently found out it's a sign of a developing anxiety disorder
