I have a complete aversion to mirrors and cameras, and have done since I was very young. Anything that involves me seeing myself or other people looking at me is something I avoid at all costs.
Obviously I do look in the mirror but it is purely functional, like making sure there is nothing stuck in my teeth etc, but even when I'm standing in front of one I make my eyes blurry on purpose so I don't see too much ugliness.
I know people think I'm being silly when I call myself ugly or disgusting but the flaws are so bad they dominate me to the point where I just cannot see anything good. If I could avoid looking in the mirror at all I would never look in one again.
