I play with and stick weird things in my BELLY BUTTON
SERIOUS HELP/OPINION only!! & We are all different so please try not to be negative. :)
When I was a small girl (5 years)I was never developed a safety/security issue like sucking my thumb or eating my boogers.
Instead I began "feeling" or "playing" with my BELLY BUTTON. I did it whenever I could: at school, in the bathroom, work, babysitting, weddings, while sleeping, under my dress in the dark at events... I would even excuse myself to private areas to "feel" it.
I am now 26 and I am STILL doing this habit. It makes me feel better about stressful situations. I do not drink, smoke, do drugs THIS is my drug and I'm afraid if I stop I will lose my sanity.
(Also it get crazier- not for the faint of heart: I enjoy smelling my finger after I have played or touched it. At times when I am feeling crazy in my life or just bored I will stick a sharp object like a pin through a caloused layer of dead skin. When I do not want the caloused skin I store moist things (like boogers-yes boogers!) in there to keep it moist and then I peel the skin when it's time to come off. It's like a ritual... Sometimes I wrap a rubber band around it nice and tight to keep it open and to dry out the center.)
I am totally normal besides this I promise. lol. Good looking, I work at the GAP and have a lot of friends.
Is it normal?? Are there anyother belly button feelers in the world? If not how do I stop so I can lead a normal life and not feel guilty about what I'm doing??
Thanks in advance!
