Do you think biting your nails is gross?
Well try biting your skin every single day.
I didn't like my skin,
How bad my cuticles are,
How badly my fingers bleed and the skin falls off.
My nails are short and dirty.
I feel like it looks disgusting.
So, I eat my skin.
That test tommorow, that's why
My in-laws coming over, that's why
Going to my job interview, that's why
Cleaning my room, that's why
Everyone with dermatophagia has an excuse.
I do too.
But the reason we do it is from stress and anxiety.
Anxiety, that's why.
