    So anxiety and depression and possibly OCD. What help have you had? Are you on any medication? You obviously suffer from a problem with self image or lack of and you need to recognise that we all have the odd problem with what we see in the mirror. Facial lines, a big nose, perhaps even a big mouth but we have to accept ourselves for what we are and not let it get in the way of socialising and making friends. Just try and make the most of who and what you are.
