    Everyone is like your so gorgeous! Shut up! Don't say that! But I can't help it. Especially when my significant other never touches me. I always feel so unattractive I don't even dress up anymore. People on EP say your photo is gorgeous. It's a photo. Anything can be beautiful...

    I'm actually so ugly it's kind of funny.

    And I'm sick of my body and my face ugh. I'm sick of dieting and counting calories and exercising and just CONSTANTLY thinking of my appearance. Sometimes I just wish I were blind so I don't need to see my ughness

    I was not always fat

    but the order I got I kept gaining weight. It didn't become a problem until high school, and I would say I still looked okay but I have gained twenty more pounds and I feel ugly and fat most of the time.
