(Apologies for the long comment, but...) I'm 38 and have evidently bitten my nail
s since around the age of one, before I learned to talk, even. Until the age of seven I had 8-10 warts around the cuticle of each nail
which were subsequently burnt off, but then the nail biting
became even worse. Sometimes it feels like a phantom weight, and that even gravity weights too heavily on my nail
s and I want to remove them all in order to lighten the load!
