Let me come clean on the fact that before I met my wife, I used to bite and pick at my fingernails all of the time. And I used to hate those red, puffy hang nails that would hurt to the touch! Thankfully, my wife got me to break that habit!
And I was even happier that I stopped this morning when I read this story on People about 18-year-old Lauren Nichols from Texas, who developed a SERIOUS health problem due to the the fact that she used to bite her nails!
She developed an infection so bad, that it caused her to need surgery!
Read this...and I'm sure you've bitten or picked your last fingernail!
