I have OCD and one of my compulsions is picking at my nails and the skin around them until everything is smooth. I have bit my nails until the bleed before. Well, last week I bit at my nail and now its infected. It is incredibly painful, but the doc gave me some antibiotics so at least its starting to get better. My psychologist also switched my medication since the current meds are not doing enough to control my compulsions.

I think the stress from COVID and from the election is what is driving my anxiety. Seriously, its sort of just a constant low level state of anxiety that doesn’t go away. The world is literally too much right now.

Otherwise, it was a pretty low key week. I binged season 1 of Evil. It was fantastic! Now I’m watching Mr. Mercedes. I listened to the audiobook, but my dad loved the show so I’m watching it now. It is also fantastic!

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Phew! Your post header came up in my feed with “Infection” and I thought you had contracted Covid! Glad it’s not that though ouch, I hope the infection you do have clears up quickly.
    I’m hoping Fortune & Glory will turn up in my mailbox.

    Wishing you a great reading week, and less stress

  2. Sorry to hear that you have an infected nail – you have my sympathy as it’s so painful! I hope it all clears up and the medication is more helpful…

  3. Ouch, sorry to hear about the infected nail. I hope the new meds help. I feel like even those who don’t normally deal with anxiety are feeling it these days. Between the virus and the election… it’s all worrisome and awful.

  4. I agree. The world is a little too much right now. It’s incredible to see how alarmist and extreme people are becoming about certain things, and it never stops. I hope your med adjustments help and that you heal quickly

  5. First I am sorry you are feeling like that Samantha but that’s totally understandable! You said it prefectly: constant low level state of anxiety. I feel the same yet I am usually an optimistic and resilient person. But this year is so hard for everyone! I hope that new meds will help you cope and feel better. Oh adn I loved your humour today LOL I wish you a great and peaceful week!

  6. Yes it’s a rough time and I do that to my cuticles. I have to moisturize them every night and sometimes in the daytime. I think between COVID and the election we are all worn out. I actually have been better with the amazing weather and the workload of projects I’m doing. I hope this week is less anxious and you read some great books!

  7. I can understand why the current events are stressing you out. They are stressful. I just have to stop watching the news when it gets to be too much. Hope you enjoyed Blacklisted as much as I did! 🙂

  8. I was such a nail biter as well and especially the skin around.. I had an infected finger or nail every week…
    Now I go to a nail artist and make sure she takes care of my nails and the skin around it and it’s never looked better and I’ve lost my urge to bite it as well!
    Hopefully your finger is better soon and it won’t happen again 🙂

  9. I can understand the anxiety… I’m really bad at the moment too. As you said, the world is too much. Everything is hideous and good news seems so few and far between… Fingers crossed there’s some good news with your election next week!

    Hope your finger heals quickly
