When your facial or body difference affects your mental health, don't suffer alone, seek professional help. Do not suffer in silence, you deserve better than that, you deserve to have a happy life like anyone else. When your self-esteem is so low that you cannot avoid seeking proper medical help to get yourself back on track to a normal healthy mental state, that is never a failing on your part. No-one should be faced with suffering alone, because they feel or look different to others. And no-one should ever feel ashamed or self-conscious because they are looking to seek that medical help or support. To seek out help for yourself is not a sign of weakness of having to give in to your failings, it is a sign of great courage in admitting that you need help. After seeking professional medical advice and help for extreme anxiousness or depression, Changing Faces is a great community of people to belong to, who understand the feeling of isolation or feeling different because of your facial or body difference and they have a great ability to help you develop your own coping strategies in dealing with others reactions in life.
