Do any of you ever feel very ugly when you look in the mirror? It's weird, sometimes I look and see someone that looks ok or good, but most of the time I see someone beyond hideous. I never think of other people by their looks and judge their little flaws but with myself I see every little thing and just look like a monster.

Do you ever feel this way, and if you do...what helps you feel better? :/ I'm thinking I need major self esteem help.

You know, I don't think I look too good either. I know I am not as particular about my appearance as I usually am. I really don't care. I don't feel like anything looks right. My clothes don't feel right either because I have lost quite a bit of weight. No real appetite but very thirsty. This is all new because I had better self esteem than I do now. I don't think I look hideous, but I don't look good. Today I felt that I looked really bad. Maybe I will go get my hair done. I will also go get a pair of pants and a pair of jeans that fit. Everything I have hangs off. Oh well.

A couple of weeks ago I polished my fingernails. That made me feel better. I also sat down and tried to put on some eyeshadow and mascara. Only did it once but had fun while I was doing it. Maybe I should do it again, because I am having no fun.

I think depression can make us feel like we look worse than we really do, but anything we can do to make ourselves feel better is a good idea :) shopping or getting your hair done could be fun. Maybe i should give that a try...I just feel like everything I try on makes me look awful haha

Yean I know. I have done a bit of shopping but that only lasts temporarily. I am getting my basement done and finally got a little into it. But the guy is moving so slow, now I am anxious that it gets done in time for me to prepare it for my guests on Christmas. I have to have my furniture delivered from storage. Oh well.

I tell you ladies. I always felt that well. And still do sometimes. But my cousin posted a pic of me on facebook that was 30 years old or so. I looked good. I didn't see that then, but now i do. I wish I would of realized that or wasn't always comparing myself to others. Because if I knew what I know now, I would of been a lot more self confident. So you do look better than you think. Think of it this way, if there is something you don't like about yourself, it doesn't mean somebody else doesnt. Or does. or something like that.

Getting sleepy, going to bed.

See you all in the morning....

Hugs, Karen
