How many of you notice when you look in a mirror you're shocked by the person who's looking back at you?

When I look in the mirror I see a shadow of what I used to be. I'm paler, almost porcelain color. I have red blotches on my face. My normally soft blond hair is thin & frizzy gray. I'm only 47! mad

I'm 100 pounds overweight. Lupus didn't do this though, sweets did it. rolleyes

I just look so bad I don't want to look in mirrors anymore. shakehead

Hugs Joy, I'm quite sure you are a beautiful person inside and out regardless of what that reflection is telling you.

People don't realize what a toll chronic illness takes on us but we do. We are warriors! Beautiful, strong and resilient! I have blotchy funny levido skin on my arms and legs, dark circles under my eyes and the same pale face with splotches. I'm also going grey and I don't like that one bit! (I'm 39). My feet are always purple and I have what I call frankenfingers because of my eczema. Despite that people tell me I look great, I don't know whether to hug them or kick them in the shin lol.

Many, many hugs to you :)

I'm just shocked at the person looking back. I don't feel as bad as I look in the mirror. I feel like it's someone else looking back at me. I want to check and see who is looking in on me through that window, because I feel that it sure ain't me.
