Insecure of physical appearance
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

I have always been underweight. I'm extremely skinny and am often a victim of body shaming by family and strangers alike. Recently I developed severe acne which has left visible scars over my cheeks. I cannot put on makeup the whole time. People never stop taunting me, asking me to eat. Now they've started making me feel conscious about my face as well. Many a times, my bf has also made me feel that he prefers curvy girls over skinny ones. I cannot gain weight, no matter what, it's just my genetics. Of late, I've been pretty insecure of my physical appearance. Unfortunately, society has set a standard of acceptable physical and beauty standards
