Well, simply I was sitting on my bed watching tv and I noticed I had dry skin on my foot that was peeling off so I decided to go a head and pick it off. Except when I did it literally peeled of a piece of skin about three inches or longer closer to the center of my heel and it was thick at that point. So basically I have a layer of skin (and skin is THICK on your feet) that came off and it hurts really bad.
So here it is again this time under my name but I do have one question Becky? How'd you know it was me? it could have been Amy or anyone????
My story makes Becky's look like a Disney movie so if hers made you go ewww then you want to really stay away from mine!
I'm a picker. I have to have things to pick at and foot skin is a great thing but if you peel off more than what is ready to slough off it does hurt really bad. Make sure you keep it clean so it doesn't get infected. I have one of those foot scrubbie things that has suction cups and sticks to the shower floor. You pour some soap on and it has bristles and a pumice stone to help clean your feet and get rid of that skin. After I get out of the shower and the skin is wet, I'll scratch it off and it forms into this light gray-white gunk and I keep adding to see how much skin I can scratch off. It's really gross but if I don't do it the skin gets super thick and hurts to move because it restricts movement. Another thing I'll do is take a knife when it's dry or scissors and shave off the extra skin on my leg (I'm not cutting but getting rid of that thick skin that hurts) and it flakes off in this fine almost baby powder like stuff. But still my favorite thing is to peel it off or if I don't have skin on my feet I'll pick at my head and try to find spots that will peel off kind of like dandruff but bigger, then there's nothing like picking a nose but it has to be dry not slimy. When Q was little he'd produce the best boogers. It would drive me nuts if I saw it and couldn't get it out. I think I probably traumatized the poor kid but I couldn't sleep or think or do anything until that booger was gone. Another thing was earwax--he produced that pretty good too. It just drove me bonkers if I saw earwax chunks in my kid's ear. The pinkie fingernail is good for plucking baby boogers and ear wax out, ya know how drug addicts will grow it long to scoop up cocaine and snort, I used mine for picking boogers and ear wax. So who's grosser Becky or me? Is anyone even still reading?
