Depressing (I have BDD though).
My face? Terrible. I've despised my physical form for as long as I can remember. I've gone so far as to cut open my own face out of self-loathing. Whenever I look in the mirror I see nothing but a failure, a disappointment, a waste of flesh and blood. @starlight dream What's BDD?
I hear ya, seriously, haha. Yeah, what's BDD?
It's Body Dysmorphic Disorder (an obsessive belief that my appearance isn't good enough, so I go to great lengths to hide my face)
It's silly sounding, but quite distressing.
I lost 180 lbs, so my face is actually 100% different. Sometimes I still get confused looking at myself, but it's a pretty good face if I have to say so myself.
@starlight dream I feel for you. I hate how I look, not just my face, and always conceal myself under a coat of some description. I don't go swimming because I hate revealing myself to others; I even hated undressing infront of my ex-girlfriends. I was bullied a lot as a kid, though - not just by other children, either. I learned to hate myself, just as others hated me.
@Ms Littlefish Wow! You must be so proud of yourself. Weight loss is extremely difficult for a lot of people.
@The Stranger Thanks! It wasn't easy, but it was worth it. It's been almost a decade now and I feel it happened at a real crossroad of my life. At that moment in time, I would either accept to get well or to get sicker.
Feels face-like, I don't exactly know what having another face would feel like so I don't have any other feeling to compare or contrast here.
@Ms Littlefish Wow looking at your pics I never woulda imagined that.Congrats for your achievement! And you're a Very beautiful girl btw
@The Stranger I know when we look in a mirror our feelings about ourselves get in the way so we can't view the reflection objectively
I understand how u feel(in part anyway). My feelings about my appearance come from how others have treated me.I like who I am on the inside tho^^
When I was a kid I hated it because I have big ears and a weird skull shape, discovered in early 20s that if I cover those up with long curly hair I actually don't look half bad...at least from the neck up, from there down I look like a sack of suet with steroid arms and legs sticking out of it (irony is, when my face was ugly I had a very tone, athletic build.)
