I'm saying this in the nicest way possible, if only to make you realise how silly you're being.
Well to bitch slap you with this... who cares? Seriously... with everyone having a face on their avatar, do you honestly think people are bothered about what you look like etc... - out of all the hundreds of face avatars out there, what makes yours so special that people will stop and pay attention to you specifically?
You have to put things in perspective Brodie. Any self loathing issues/depression can only be resolved by yourself personally - trust me, been there done that now selling the t-shirt via threadless; so my words will more than likely wash over your head.

This whole thing has been going on for well over two years now, I'm still battling on it's just a work in progress. I mean, shit, a year or so ago I wasn't even able to articulate nor construct a single bloody sentence(medication does wonders >_<)
So a quick summary; I have severe depression, I am on 40 mgs of anti-depressant(but may be upping that soon >_<), I've been both counselled and reviewed by app. 3-5 psychiatrists along with doctors, I endured a year without saying a peep at high school(oh what fun that was) and - to put it eloquently - I am severely fucked mentally
But that is all just jargon bullshit, I am working on getting better and all that jazz, but trust me on this. I have experienced it all, especially the worst of it, social ridicule, suicide, family drama(lots of that). Now it's time to tackle the little things, y'know like my self-worth, social life etc
So all in all, I know what I have to do, everything you said, I have been trying to do, and more, to get out of this...rut. So yeah, nothing to worry about
The only reason I am being as upfront as I am is I know that you won't throw a pity party for me. I am able to be honest without you thinking I am bitching about all this shit. It is in fact one of the things I most adore about your personality. Truthfully I am happy all of it has happened, I wouldn't be who I am if it hadn't.
