I used to have strong, thick, beautiful nails
when I was in middle school. Now, however, they're as short
as can be. I bite them down daily, sometimes until they bleed. If one is ever even close to growing back to a normal length, I always seem to bite it back again. Also, the skin around my nails and fingertips is absolutely shredded. I push and tear off my cuticles, and tear the skin off of my fingertips.
