    YOU Can Beat Blushing, I Did.

      I am a guy in my 50s and started blushing frequently when I was about 18.  So I went through this before the Internet was going. I not only blushed a few times a day, I WORRIED about blushing constantly.   I tried subliminal tapes. They were hard to find back...

    How to Stop?!

    The first time I became concious of blushing was around 8yrs ago. One day, somebody said something to me and I blushed slightly. They noticed and pointed it out, but it didn't bother me at all and I was able to just laugh it off. Then, later on, when there...

    I Always Wonder If I'm the Only One

    I try to find people who share similar experience with me, and while there is a very slight amount of people who suffer from this, at least I'm not the only one. I still tend to wonder if anyone has it NEARLY as severely as I do. Personally, I don't think so. I blush...

    I hate blushing but it's unfortunately out of my control. I want to appear cool and collected but my blushing betrays me. It's very annoying and I also hate people noticing when I blush.

    Not On My Own Account Though

    For some reason I always blush if someone talking to me shows embarrassment or anxiety about what they're saying but hardly ever while I'm the one talking....I'm a sympathetic blusher I guess, lol. It used to get me in trouble sometimes during grade school because if a teacher...

    Blushing Sucks

    Yes, I am always blushing too! I wish I had a way to control it. Seems as much as I try to act like I do not care, it just gets worse. Sometimes I blush for no reason at all, or when I am talking to someone, when the conversation is not even embarrassing. Makes it very hard to...

    What helps you not to blush?

    Ive recently told my teacher about my depression. It triggered my anxiety and my blushing came back even worse than it was before. Washing my face reguraly and drinking water doesnt help anymore. Any advice how to reduce blushing to minimum?

    It's so bad, and it's only getting worse.

    I don't blush when embarrassed but when I don't know what to do in a situation. Rather, the blushing is the source of my embarrassment. Last week I was at a concert and ended up grinding with some guy and when the show was over and the lights came on I didn't know what to do (he...

    I blush when attention is on me, I laugh to hard, the teacher calls on me in class, when I'm in crowds. Does anyone have any advice, or can they relate?

    I wake up every morning and the first thought that enters my head is, "I'm unlovable" no-one in the world is ever going to love me. This is followed by a sinking feeling in my stomach, then a heavy feeling starts to sit on my chest and I have to force myself to get out of bed...

    but often enough. I used to think it was something that I would grow out of. That it was a thing of youth. I was wrong. Even now I still blush and sometimes it's at the most in opportune time. Lol. Nothing like a dead giveaway like a blush to show someone where my mind just...
