Hello, I developed morphea during my last pregnancy and have had it for nearly three years now. My torso is covered in marks - most look like bruises but some are the kind with white hardened middles. I feel very low about the way I look and have spent a long time not caring about myself or looking after myself. I am trying to change this and do exercise and lose some weight (not very overweight but would like to look better). I just feel so low about the way I look.
I have given the idea of ever being able to wear a bikini again, but I find it hard to dress in the summer as some of my patches are visible on my shoulders, chest and upper back. I just feel hideous and don't want anyone to see.
Does anyone else have this problem and how do you cope?
