I am not a child, but I am desperate for
help. I have bitten my nails since I was a very young child. I am a 42 year old female. My mother tried everyting possible growing up. The stuff you paint on, rewards, tapeing them up, etc...... As an adult it is worse than ever. I have two fingers where I have NO nail at all, from biting them off. It rarely hurts because I guess there are no nerves left. They do bleed and people cringe when they look at my hands. I get sick all the time from germs.
