    Ouch!

    I am such an A grade idiot :twisted:

    I managed to slice my arm open last week with a finger nail (I have since cut them all off), the cut scabbed over nicely, but I am like a moth to a flame, and keep picking it :roll:

    Well, now I've picked it (again :wall: ) and re-opened the whole cut, where it was 75% healed....aargh!! It bl**dy hurts now too.

    Is anyone else addicted to picking scabs, or am i a freak? :lol:

    Double ouch!!

    Me too... I can't stop picking things. Nat always tells me off for harassing Ryan if he has a visible bogey that I want to get out, or he has yellow sleepy chunks on his eyelashes. But you can't just leave it there, it's not right!!

    I'm not the only one then :rotfl:

    Doesn't hurt so much today, but its getting a new scab, and I am having to tell myself not to pick it :wall: Wonder how long I'll last :think: :wink:

    I'm same as you too Leckershell, if Lib has a nose bogey or an eye bogey, I just HAVE to pick....C tells me off....but.....whatever!!! I can't have her with a bogey in her nose, and if I do try to leave it, it takes over my brain, I can think of nothing else until its gone :lol:
