please move this if needed.

i have OCD and well i've always been too scared to ask how to cope with the destruction it makes since i usually space out during check ups

anyway, my compulsion is biting my fingers. it's a recently um developed one and well i didn't really notice it until started tasting blood one day and well you can imagine.

the boxes of bandages i use! filling up my whole bedroom anyway i have a question

can anyone suggest some things to cope with the constant biting? makes my jaws hurt and my fingers are ruined. i need to find a way to hide this somehow since people tend to go away when they see my hands

gets lonely sometimes. anyway, thank you!

If you really want to bite and chew on something, then why not chew gum?

but it doesn't work..i just NEED to bite my fingers. biting on anything else doesn't stop me since eventually i do it.

but thank you for your suggestions. i suppose i can fight it by substituting gum. and thank you for the article.

im still figuring out how to hide the bite marks

um gloves?
why cant you just put something over your nails? and refuse to let yourself take it off and bit that instead?


" One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. "

i wonder when i'll finally jsut start accepting myself, when i'll stop saying i wish i could be like that person.

i have facebook, and myspace. and you can ask for it. :P
