This is one I hate to bring up, but I think it's worth some discussion, so here goes... One thing I struggle with when I'm very anxious is little nervous habits like picking at scabs, biting nails and pulling cuticles, picking at myself in general. Sometimes I'll have a minor cut or something that won't heal because I just can't leave it alone. It feels kind of childish - it's certainly much worse in periods of heightened anxiety. I know there are a lot of people that also do this on different scales - I'd be curious to hear others' stories. Not to get morbid or anything. This is just one part of the anxiety that I've never really understood or focused on specifically in treatment. Does anyone else do this? Or has anyone overcome it?
