Hi Secret. Yep, you're certainly not alone with the hiding away thing. I haven't been out AT ALL in three years. I refuse to even go out into the garden incase the neighbours happen to get an eye-full of my horrible skin. I even close the curtains in the lounge (or whatever room I'm in) so that no one can see me properly. I realise it must get really depressing and annoying for my family to constantly have to sit in darkness because of my insecurities. It's really sad that we feel the need to have to hide ourselves away we're worth more than this, it's just finding that inner confidence to realise it. So I really can relate to you on this.
3 years ?
Yup. F**king sucks balls. I'll get a life one day, I swear I will, lol.
