My nose is very dry and the skin is flaking especially at the corners, the whole of my t-zone is starting to become drier, some blackheads on my nose but it's not too noticeable. I have an irresistible urge to scratch my nose.
It doesn't hurt to smile any more which makes me ecstatic. When people told me to smile because they thought I was sad, well I was, but the point was it hurt to smile - that was a really bitter experience. Made me feel so socially awkward. Now I am feeling more confident having less pimples around chin and mouth...errg!
I have found that spending time with my family really helps my self-esteem. Realising how vital it is to have family or close friends who will always love you, no matter how much your appearance changes, that there love and support for you is always there restores in you all the confidence you need to get through the worse of times. Spending too much time isolated can really make you feel a lot worse and drag you deeper into the depths of misery's well.
