The hideous scar on my leg makes me feel ugly and insecure


DEAR DEIDRE: WHILE everyone else spent the summer in shorts, I cover up because I have a hideous keloid scar on my leg.

The scar is big, red and raised. It formed after I had an accident on my bike.

I’m an 18-year-old lad, and it’s also stopping me from getting a girlfriend because it makes me feel so ugly.

I can’t bear to look at it, and I don’t want anyone else to see it either.

DEIDRE SAYS: You’re self-conscious about your scar but when other people look at you, they’ll see the whole person, not just one blemish.

Try to focus on your good points and if anyone notices the scar, tell them about the accident you had.

My support pack Raising Self-Esteem should help you build more positive feelings about yourself.
