Hangnail Rubbing (and other fun stuff) ;)
by Katie Pollard
Me and my kids
I originally came to this site and just made this comment on somebody else's texture blog, but I figured, why not make my own blog and see how many people can relate?
"OK...so I cannot seem to find anything on this issue but I know I can't be the only one! I love rubbing my hangnails on the inside seam of t-shirts or on blankets that have started to ball up and will catch the hangnail in a certain way. I will rub until the hangnail is gone and sometimes to the point of bleeding and I don't even realize it! I also like to rub my chapped lips on the same types of material hoping to catch the dry skin on a thread. Typing it out makes me sound so lame...but I've done this my whole life!! Does anyone else out there have this issue???"
This habit is a very calming sensation for me. Whenever I see a certain blanket that I like I can't resist but to break into this behavior. I also like to smell the blanket. LOL...so embarrassing to admit, but it's true. Must just be a childhood thing that I've brought with me into adulthood.
I also have a very sensitive nose/sense of smell and can smell things that most are unaware of. I've been able to 'sniff out' and find things that were burning (light bulbs, old electric cords, etc.), leaking gas, pet accidents and rotting food.
Things that freak me out and make me cringe:
Pushing back cuticles
Cutting my toe nails
Writing with a wooden pencil on paper
Erasing with a wooden pencil on paper
Anything touching or entering my belly button (finger, etc.)
Watching someone else touch inside their belly button
Someone pulling on my fingers or toes in order to pop them
Watching someone else pull on their fingers or toes to pop them
God just typing it out and thinking about it is making me wig out!
