The Man Who Couldn’t Stop Scratching


For as long as he could remember, the man known only as “the scratcher” had an uncontrollable urge to scratch himself. It started as a simple itch, but soon became a compulsive need that took over his life. He would scratch himself for hours on end, until his skin was raw and bleeding. He tried everything to stop, but nothing worked. The urge was too strong.

The scratcher became a recluse, hiding away from the world in shame. His only relief came from scratching. The more he scratched, the more he bled, and the more he bled, the more he scratched. It was a never-ending cycle of itch and relief, pain and pleasure.

The scratcher’s body was a map of scars. His nails were worn down to the nubs. He had lost count of the number of times he’d been hospitalized for his self-inflicted injuries. But he couldn’t help it. The urge was too strong.

One day, after a particularly intense scratching session, the scratcher collapsed and died. The autopsy revealed that his cause of death was blood loss and infection.

The man who couldn’t stop scratching was a tragic figure, a victim of a compulsive urge that ultimately led to his untimely death.
