Anonymous asked: should I get my husband to see someone about eating his fingernails way pass the end of his exposed nails? He doesn't think there is any thing wrong with it. He is eating the skin around the nails. He also cuts into his toe nails until they bleed. He said he has ingrown toe nails, He is a diabetic and has caused a lot of trouble with his toes to the point of near loosing one. I am at a lost as to what to do, I told him I was not working to get any more of his self imposed wounds well.
Get him help. No matter how much you say to him if it hasn’t reached him yet it won’t until he is ready to accept it and sometimes it easier to accept help from an outside source then someone close to you. Definitely get your husband to see someone but tread carefully because this would of compulsive harming of ones self sometimes leaves an individual unwilling to accept help.
