I'm about to start a treatment plan that will require me to have a chemical peel/micro once a month for 6 months. My esthetician customizes them to my skin, so I couldn't tell ya what type/percentage they are. But they do leave my skin horribly scabby, and the downtime is at least 5 days.
Anyway, I've been wanting to get a job. The only problem - well, it's more of a personal issue - is that I really, really don't want to be working after I undergo a treatment. I don't think my self-esteem could handle all the stares (and probably questions) from co-workers/customers. But I don't want to be a bum for the next 6 months either.
I know this is silly of me. There are plenty of you who suck it up and go about your lives. Still, perhaps you could offer helpful stories or thoughts?
