I was diagnosed with PA this past summer. I get my shots when I need them (varies between 3-5 weeks), I pushed it last time and waited 7 weeks....What a mistake! I could barely focus on driving...Yikes!
Anyhow, I have noticed since about autumn time that I simply cannot grow my nails. The moment they get any sort of lip to them and begin to grow off and away from the pad of my digits they break, crack and layers peel off. My toes are not so bad, I can simply play with a bit of the nail and voila! No need for clippers, they break off straight but my finger nails...Not so lucky.
I've tried to clip them to keep them as short as possible, but it doesn't matter, when I go to clip them a layer of my nail begins to peel. I've tried the fake nails but because my nail bed is so thin now, the adhesion hurts. So now I look like a kid who has bitten every last ounce of nail off and now they bleed and form hang nails.
How do others deal with this, if you have this problem?
