came out of my mother's womb biting my nails. i bit my nails until adulthood. i had teenage acne so picked on face. i currently have a scalp infection and pick on those places day and night. the other night i woke up with blood under my nails and scalp. i have been told by my doctor that it is anxiety. this is also a part of being obsessive. have i mentioned i, too, am add and suffer from depression. my doctor said if you have one of these conditions, you tend to be at a higher risk of having all of them. they must have something to do with the same part of the brain or something. i am 61 and thank god i found the correct meds for most of these problems 10 years ago! good luck to all of you.View Thread
