I almost didn’t post this.... but y’all know I’m an open book with my health and anxiety...

ptsd...... I’ve always been a #nailpicker it’s a way of how I deal with my #anxiety and #ptsd it’s very real and it’s called #onychotillomania and we usually just don’t talk about it... I’ve been having a really bad time with my anxiety lately and when I do my nail picking tends to get really bad... to the point we pull off our nails ....once I get my anxiety under control again it won’t be so bad.. I post about it so others know they aren’t alone and if they need someone to talk to they can come to me.... I am a safe place #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #21+

Onychotillomania is a psychodermatosis that results from self-induced repeated trauma to the nail unit.

It is characterized by the neurotic and irresistible urge to pick at, pull out, or harmfully bite or injure the nail(s). Multiple psychological factors can be involved. It can be difficult to diagnose, as patients mostly deny the self-destructive behavior, and the clinical features may mimic other inflammatory conditions of the nail apparatus.

When anxious or stressed out, I do this. It's not as bad as it used to be though, there was a time that every finger looked like this and often I would end up taking off the whole fingernail.

When I ran out of fingers, I would then go at my toenails. It's really gross and ugly.

○ Here's some coping skills for BFRB's!

○ Also, I didnt add this but it's such an important one, having a solid skin care routine really helps.



○ Update: I've struggled with dermatillomania and onychotillomania (skin-picking and nail-picking) since I was a young child. I used to get bullied for skin-picking as well as other things. I've only recently started finding a community of people who understand what it feels like to struggle with a BFRB. I'm thankful for the sense of community.

This isn't a complete list of possible BFRBs, there's also compulsive nose picking and compulsive tongue/cheek/lip biting.


.
I wanted to talk about BFRBs because there isn't a whole lot of awareness about them and they can be a very damaging behavior that deeply affect people's lives. The stigma of these behaviors can cause a huge amount of shame because of being labelled gross or weird.
.
I know that onychotillomania has been a major struggle for me and I've caused major damage to my nails before. Trichotillomania is also something I used to struggle with and comes back in waves where I pull out my eyebrows, eyelashes and nose hair.

I have posted about my struggle with body-focused repetitive behaviours (BFRBs) and skin-picking disorder (SPD) in the past.

While I was initially incredibly nervous to be open about it, I had a few people reach out to me expressing that they were experiencing a similar struggle.

I’m spending my February reading about this disorder and different ways to approach and manage it, and I thought it would be beneficial to share some of this information with you! Many people struggle with BFRBs and don’t even know it, so if this sounds like you, I hope this encourages you to look into your behaviours and understand them better!

If you want more information on BFRBs, particularly on skin picking disorder and hair pulling disorder, please look into @tlcbfrb ! Christina Pearson is the founder and has done incredible groundwork in raising awareness of these behaviours and associated conditions

[Image description: the words “body-focused repetitive behaviour” are in the middle of the screen, surrounded by different bubbles containing the following information:

1. Related to obsessive compulsive disorder
2. Intense urges to touch the body in ways that cause physical damage
3. Includes biting, picking, or pulling behaviours
4. The cause is unknown
5. Usually onsets in late childhood or early teens
6. Unrelated to self-harm or physical tics
7. Very poorly understood and is often left untreated
8. Affects 3-6% of the general population]

Who needs nail polish remover when you have onychotillomania?

This post goes out to my friends who say my nails always look nice. This is exactly why I paint them every few days. Picking at the polish helps keep me from picking and biting at my actual nails and skin. (Or even pulling out and chewing on my hair)The act of painting is also a self care moment for me, I find it very relaxing. Remember this when you see others post pics of things "looking perfect", this is not the real world, it is social media. Not everything is always good and you don't always see the bad and the ugly.

warning: this post has photos of fingernails with exposed skin.

Please do not swipe if you’re not comfortable with this.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Onychotillomania is an obsessive compulsive disorder in which someone constantly rips their nails or the skin around their nails off. This is different to nail biting and the person could rip their fingernails, toenails or both. For me it’s just my fingers (especially my ring and pinky fingers on my left hand).

There are many habits such as hair pulling, skin picking, and nail biting that could be signs of Body-focused Repetitive Behaviour (interesting read of you want to read further into it).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have been doing this for the past few years but I only found out that it was more than a mere habit recently. For me it’s a response to my anxiety/stress.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On an average day my fingers look like this. Some days are good and my fingers are healed, and others are bad. On bad days, the skin around my fingernails are red, raw and the surrounding skin swollen, with most of my nails on some fingers gone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may look like a painful habit to have, but to me it’s a coping mechanism. I don’t necessarily feel pain when I do rip my nails, peel my skin or damage my nail beds.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A lot of the time I don’t realise I’m doing it until someone else notices and tells me to stop... but minutes later I’m back at it again. It’s an ongoing cycle that’s hard for me to break and a lot of time passes by.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At this stage I am trying alternative methods to reduce the amount of time spent but if nothing helps I may have to seek Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in conjunction with the therapy/counselling.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s a work in progress for me and I’m still learning as I go. But just know if you’re spending more time on your habit than you want to admit, and you find yourself doing it without realising... it may be a sign of Body-focused Repetitive Behaviour.

Where are my #BFRB people at?! Anyone else having a major flair lately due to the increased national and global stressors we are dealing with?

I’m typically an unconscious picker/puller/chewer but lately it’s way more conscious. I’m having an increase in my #excoriationdisorder aka #dermatillomania , #dermatophagia , and #trichotillomania (of my eyebrows), as well as the WORST bout of #onychotillomania I’ve ever had (farewell pinky toenails) 🤷🏽‍♀️ Really cracked down on myself last week to start using my coping skills and self-care again. This week is better and things are starting to heal. What strategies do you guys use to help manage your BFRBs? Do yours get worse when stressed too?
Fun fact, I have PMU freckles and eyebrows that help make my scars blend in easier and help it not be super noticeable when my brows are sparse 🙃 I also typically keep my nails done (acrylics) as it decreases my cuticle eating/chewing. I do those myself and right now I’m out of one of my products so they aren’t done! Much love to @theofficialbrowtique.mckenzie for the freckles and brows and @essenceofbeautylashes for my lashes. Does anyone else get beauty services like I do to curtail their #BFRBs or mask the visual impact?

A personal victory. The anxiety hasn’t disappeared and my fingertips still tingle.

When I look at my nails, I have to make a fist to stop myself from picking. I don’t think I have totally kicked the “habit”(disorder) and I do believe it will be a constant battle. Any of you have this issue? Carrying a glass file has helped me a ton. #stellalimchua #stellalimchua2020 #onychotillomania #anxiety

Heard of onychotillomania?

We've seen more kids who may be a little anxious or picking their nails more than usual. We challenged @cyliepaedspod to come up with the top 30 things to help avoid nail picking.
Here they are:
1. Cut toenails regularly
2. File the corners
3. Use a fidget spinner
4. Cuddle your cat
5. Draw pictures
6. Cuddle a teddy bear
7. Peel all the rind and white stuff off an orange and eat it
8. Use a frick-frack
9. Google what an ingrown nail looks like to avoid one
10. Pick your nose (just joking - don't do this!)
11. Use a fidget cube
12. Cut your fingernails short
13. Make something with your hands
14. Tell yourself to STOP IT!
15. Put on shoes and socks
16. Play with silly putty
17. Hold and read a book with both hands
18. Pop bubble wrap
19. Do some star jumps
20. Play a game on your phone
21. Go and get a drink of water
22. Play with slime
23. Pat your dog
24. Ask your family to tell you when you are doing it
25. Put bandaids on your nails
26. Reinforce your nails with nail glue
27. Make a fist
28. Put your hands in gloves.
29. Reward yourself when you don't do it.
30. Talk to someone if you can't stop, please don't hide it, ask for help!!

What a great turn out for tonight's launch of our first BFRB group " Y.A.N.A " You Are Not Alone.

We had 4 people attend our first group! With this group we create support and awareness. Not many people know or understand what BFRB is or means. BFRB stands for Body Focus Repative Behavior. Like skin picking ( dermatillomania) / ( excoriation disorder) or hair pulling ( trichotillomania) and obsessive nail biting ( onychotillomania ). Please reach out if you have any questions! Or visit our website www.launchingpoint.org

Ονυχοτιλλομανία.
Τι είναι?
Είναι μια ψυχαναγκαστική διαταραχή, όπου το άτομο ξύνει με μανία τα νύχια του αποκολλώντας σταδιακά τμήμα του νυχιού από το δέρμα.

Προκαλείται και από στρες και άγχος καθώς και αλλες ψυχολογικές διαταραχές. Όσο αυτό συνεχίζεται η επιφάνεια του νυχιού γίνεται όλο και πιο μικρή, δημιουργουνται σοβαρές πληγές, και πέρα της άσχημης εικόνας, μπορεί να προκύψουν και μολύνσεις. Ένας τρόπος αντιμετώπισης, είναι η ενίσχυση του νυχιού με κάποιο υλικό από πάνω (εφόσον δεν υπάρχει καποια μόλυνση ή ανοιχτή πληγή) για την προστασία του νυχιού, έως ότου το άτομο καταφέρει να αντιμετωπίσει τον ψυχαναγκασμό αυτόν.

It's BFRB Awareness Week!

BFRB's are more common than you think!

Do you know someone who chronically bites their nails? BAM! This is the most socially accepted form of BFRB.

I have trichotillomania, onychotillomania and dermatillomania.
If you have a BFRB, you are welcome and safe to be open about it when I work with you! No shame required.

Okay. This a SHOUT OUT to a pretty damn cool salon here in LA that I HAD to share with you guys.


💅🏼
@cancanparleur is a water free, minimal plastic, toxin free, Women owned and run salon in the heart of Hollywood. 💅🏼
Many of you know that I have a severe nail biting/ picking habit with an emphasis on my thumbs. I’ve learned that my specific case has a diagnosis called Onychotillomania. It had gotten really bad and uncontrollable these passed few months, and when this happens I go to the salon and have fake nails put on my thumbs. Which I always hate doing because of the waste and the chemicals are just SO BAD for us 😷
💅🏼
So I did my research and decided to give Can Can Parleur a try. I’m so glad I did! They used a toxin free bio seaweed sculpting gel to build a new “nail” over my thumbs. The manicurist, Mercedes, and the owner, Carol Anne, were so gentle, kind and so understanding. I didn’t feel a moment of shame or embarrassment like I usually do when having to get my nails done. I honestly can’t thank them enough for aiding one of my biggest insecurities💜 💅🏼
If you’re in LA and are looking for a more sustainable and ethical salon, please check them out! 💅🏼
Happy Friday, friends 🧡

Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors~ 12 of the most commons BFRB’s are depicted above.

Included are the proper names for skin picking, skin nibbling, cheek biting, inner lip biting, tongue biting, nail biting, nail picking, nose picking, hair nibbling, hair cutting, hair pulling, and eye picking. For years I suffered from severe inner lip biting and nail biting. I’ve managed to (mostly) overcome both of those. I still suffer from nail picking, skin nibbling, and skin picking. Dermatillomania (skin picking) is the bfrb that I most recently have suffered serious rounds of.

I posted about dermatillomania (excoriation disorder) and got lots of DMs. So let’s talk about it!

5 #FUNFACTS About Me 🌈

1. #ONYCHOTILLOMANIA - 👈 I have that lol.

Its a disorder where you constantly try and remove your own finger or toe nails. 😅 mines in my toes.. the pinky toes specifically. Its something about Pinky toe nails that I really find weird, and so I actually completely peel off my pinky toe nails. Literally every time they grow in I peel them off, a lot of times til the point starts to bleed. I actually really enjoy it. I know 😅 I’m WEIRD AF for that.

2. I’m a #NERD - I don’t think a lot of people know this about me. But I’m a total NERD! I am so huge on ANIME, SUPER HEROES, VIDEO GAMES, and CARTOONS. It’s ridiculous! That’s literally what my entire childhood consist of. Me and my brother owned every game system that ever game out up until the 3rd Generations of Nintendo, PlayStation and Xbox Consoles. I’ve watched Anime since Sailor Moon, was running, and I watch Marvel and DC Comics on pretty much a weekly basis. I even had a Deck of Pokémon Cards with probably about 800 cards in it.
3. I’ve had 3 #Surgeries 😩 - I’ve had an extensive Surgery on my Knee, I’ve had my Wisdom Teeth 🦷 Extracted, and I had a Colonoscopy !

4. I’ve never had #Braces 😁 - I was extremely lucky that I never ever had braces and my teeth naturally all grew in straight!
5. #PARAMORE - My Favorite Music Artist of all Time is @paramore ! I’ve actually seen them in concert like 5 times, and I’ve listened to them since their very first album came out.
The only person that actually knew all of those things about me is probably my Mama ❤️ lol If she still loves me! Lol I think you can too!

Some day it is better, some day worse.

#WednesdayNewWord 😄
.
#Onychotillomania is usually associated with depressive neurosis, delusions of infestation and hypochondria, for example.

Note that it's different of onychophagia, where the person bites or chews his nails. #MMHM2
.
.
#MercrediNouveauMot 😄
.
#onychotillomanie est généralement associé à la névrose dépressive, les délires d'infestation et l'hypochondrie, par exemple. Il est noté que c'e n'est pas la même chose que l'onychophagie, où la personne mord ou mâche ses ongles.

My first ever 30 day challenge! And this is a REAL challenge with @fionapharmd 💚
.

Too many times I’ve failed within a few hours but this time, I’ve got a buddy!! We had 5 days to mentally prep ourselves. I found some patterns on the behavior that I never noticed or realized.
.
I have been having migraines everyday from either side effect or withdrawal, but this challenge is doable even on these sucky days!

When your clients bring their own inspiration👌🏼This client is a wonderful example of how something as small as your nails can impact your life. I constantly hear from my clients say how much more confident they are to go out and do simple things that they would think twice about before. I’m a firm believer in that it only takes one good manicure to change your life. The confidence gained from looking down at your hands and not wanting to hide them from the world is truly a great feeling. As women there as so many parts of ourselves that we try to hide and cover up so when one of those becomes something we are actually proud of there’s a confidence that starts to build. As someone who used to bite their nails till they bleed, something simple like handing the cashier money become something I dreaded. To give people confidence in their daily lives is why I do my job. #taylornailedit #nailsbytaylor #changingtheworld #onenailatatime #buildingconfidence

Sculpting with nail forms 📏✂️
.
🙅🏻‍♀️I don’t use plastic tips!
.


✏️ Customizing the forms by cutting them to fit does a few things:
1️⃣ Prevents pain that can happen when the form is pushed against the hyponychium... especially for clients with a short free edge or for nail biters
2️⃣ Getting snug up against the side wall if it has been filed away incorrectly (sometimes people think this gives the nail a slimmer look. Respect the side wall!)
3️⃣ The ultimate customization - no two nails are ever the same! Sculpting the perfect free edge sets you up for success with the right foundation.
.
⚠️ Note that you can cut dog ears into the lateral edges of the form to prevent spilling when you sculpt. You can see an ear on one side of the form on the index finger. I used a non levelling gel so I didn’t need to do this... that was actually a miscut!
⚠️These are not pinched perfectly. You can see that the pinky form is not tapered... using the right forms that don’t unstick is important!
.
💅🏻 Keep practising nail friends!

You just keep learning who you are and what you do💚
.

Morsicato buccarum, BFRB, and onychophagia are new terms for me. First one is the habit you biting your cheek, second is Body-Focused Repetative Behavior, and third is biting nails.
.
These writings are how I take notes now😆

Some BFRB (Body focused repetitve behavior) awareness. I have Trichotillomania. Say it with me now:

BFRB is not self harm. BFRM is not self harm. BFRB is not self harm. -Quinn

This nail polish is called ‘November Fog’ but I think it’s more of a January grey.

PS my nail tech told me that my nails have got much stronger, yay. #gelnails #onychotillomania

{Slide for more} I wanted to share these 5 rare problems because I myself didn't know these phenomena had names and that they belong to OCD family and can be diagnosed as an ACTUAL illness.

🙌 I've had the first 2 since I was a teenager and I always felt so ashamed for tearing and biting the skin on my fingers.😳 And I felt that way until recently because these symptoms are pretty rare and thus not spoken about a lot! 🙊 I hope this brings awareness to the issue and that someone can IDENTITY themselves and realized they have a condition, not an annoying quirk. 🙂 you can and should get help if you have any of these symptoms and you spend a good amount of time on them. ☝ Found From @chronicallyillchronicallychill ❤

This is going to be long, sorry.
🌱
I've always found it really difficult to explain why I pick my nails.

People would tell me to stop, and I would try, but the impulse never went away. Even in these last 2-3 years where I was able to stop for a long period, the impulse never went away. It was a constant ticking in my head, and it never left. 🌱
I also felt a little off when I spoke with nail biters because I don't bite my nails - I tear them, and, well, it's bad. I know it's bad. 🌱
Every once in a while I try to search for someone who has a story similar to mine. Someone whose nails are at least the same as mine. I just wanted to know I wasn't alone, y'know?
🌱
I finally figured it out. Just searching for "nail biting" or even "nail tearing" wasn't what I was looking for - this word I needed was onychotillomania, and I don't recommend you search for that word on a weak stomach. It also explains why the impulses calm down when I hair pull as well. (The hair is definitely not as bad at the nails, so don't worry!)
🌱
Anyway, knowing that I'm not the only one dealing with this thing that I've been dealing with for 25 years is absolute joy, and it's making me actually happy!cry a little bit right now🌱

just a reminder to all my trich friends this summer, make sure to take care of your scalp in the sun!

if you're going out to the beach or just tanning and have some visible patches, wear a hat or bandana to protect from sunburn! if you have a shaved head, sunscreen can be a good option as well. stay healthy this summer everyone!! -

been kinda stressed the past few days while on vacation about trich.

i've been using a bandana to cover my head every time I swim, but when it falls off in the water it's difficult to try and put it back on really fast to hide damage. swimming is definitely a challenge for trichsters. -

No more root of that nail. Ripped fucking clean. It doesn't make any sense to me why I do this.

Had a crazy day with multiple anxiety attacks. Then finally triggers forced out a crying spell in me at 10pm.

Now I think I'm not good enough. I'm embarrassed. I'm frustrated. I'm obsessing over my actions. #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #sh #selfharm #wound #scar #scab #onychotillomania #nailpicking #derma #dermatillomania #skinpicking #excoriation #trich #trichotillomania #hairpulling #blood #bfrb #depression #depressed #mooddisorder #mentalillness #mania #manic #ocd #anxiety

The worst thing about the disorder is that your body heals and things grow back so you #pick and pick again.

Been months since I bit my finger nails. As you can see in my previous photos, my nails were fine.

I had a horrible few days of #moodswings. #bipolar #bipolardisorder #mentalillness #onychotillomania #nailpicking #nailpicking #ocd #anxiety #derma #dermatillomania #skinpicking #excoriation #trich #trichotillomania #hairpulling #trigger #blood #bfrb #depression #depressed #moodisorder #bfrb

I had a terrible morning so I picked up a thin blade.

I've never really #cut myself and I could not dig the blade in. Instead, I used it to cut off healed skin I've picked before.
