I pull the skin off my feet compulsively
For years, I have compulsively picked at the skin on my feet. It's pretty much the same thing for me as biting my nails or cuticles on my fingers.
I stopped biting my nails a few years ago, but whenever I would bite my cuticles, I'd end up chewing and swallowing the skin. Now I do the same thing with the skin that I pull off my feet.
For some reason, it's really comforting for me to do this. If I have a ragged cuticle on my hand, or a bit of rough skin on my foot, it really bothers me, and it's as if I were picking at it to try and smooth it off. If I don't do anything, it starts to really nag at me and distract me.
I know, the idea of eating one's own dead skin sounds really gross when I say it out loud, but the truth is, it feels really comforting.
Does ANYONE else do this?
