    Does anyone else become instantly depressed when they look at themselves in the mirror? I would avoid it all together if I could. It's strange because sometimes I think I look ok but most of the time I look like either a walking corpse or a fat butch lesbian. I wish I could pull off the whole crusty dreadlocked unhygienic look so that I wouldn't have to look at my ugly face and body each morning. My face is flaking severely with xerosis at the moment as well.

    Some days I am DISGUSTED by my reflection, completely disgusted. I can rip myself to pieces. Other days I feel like, ok..whatever Im fine. Other days I dont recognize the girl I see at all. Its so weird....up and down....

    I just looked again. I look like I should be entombed somewhere or made into marshmallow pudding. I wish I didn't have to interact with people in order to live sufficiently. Whats worse is I was fairly popular and regarded as attractive when I was a teenager (but ugly as a young child) so I know how differently people treat you when you're attractive than when you're ugly.

    I know what you mean but its that feeling that inspires me, it may not be healthy but its a release.

    I rest my hand on the mirror and my reflection mimics me. I stare blankly at him; he stares back. I ask him "who are you?" yet he does not answer me.

    I would have to agree that I get depressed if I don't spend enough time looking at myself in the mirror. I try to schedule a 1/2 hour a day when I can admire myself in the mirror.

  9. It's hard for me to look at myself now- because of the treatment we tried I ended up losing most of my hair...and shaved the rest. I still see my face but i look empty somehow now. I loved my hair-maybe thats vain but its not fair. I don't like myself now, all I see is whats missing. I see the ugly and the unfamiliar

    I get very depressed from this, I can't see myself ever getting over it. It's only till I take my shirt off and look in the mirror I realise how terrible I look and I can't get over feeling totally helpless.
