How does LG affect your self-esteem? I feel so bad aout myself, that I just don't know what to do. I swear that people detect my lack of self-esteem right away and then exploit it . People seem to take joy in others pain. I just don't understand. I I used to be confident and articulate. I now find myself a depressed, mumbling, fool. I am so embarrassed of myself. When I am around people the thoughts of me smelling run through my head over and over again, to the point where I question my sanity. I just hope and pray for the day that I again can walk around with my head held high. And most of all not smell.
