  1. Hi all It's been absolutely AGES since I last posted here... July 2010, according to my post history. I wonder if anyone remembers me?! Anyway, I just wanted to update you all. I've pretty much overcome the problems I had with blushing. It rarely bothers me these days. My blushing frequency is now the same as "normal" people and hardly ever happens. I still have depression/anxiety issues, but the blushing is essentially gone. During the last few years, I've learned to believe in myself more and more. The key is simply not giving a damn about what other people think. The more you care about others' negative opinions, the more you will blush -- so learn to not give a damn! (along with building up your general self-esteem). Try to see the funny side of things, and don't take life too seriously. A great way of looking at these blushing incidents is to ask yourself, when it happens, "Will anyone remember this event in a year, 10 years, or 100 years?" Of course not! ... so why worry about it? When you have this perspective on blushing, you can see that it really doesn't matter. Stop attaching so much weight and importance to these utterly trivial events. I find exercise helps a great deal too, and works wonders for depression. Cheers, Will
  2. It's been a while since I visited this forum. Just wanted to say, I've made huge progress in the last few months. I hardly blush at all now. This condition is 99% self-esteem related, maybe even 100%. You just need to accept yourself, learn to relax your mind, and think "SO WHAT!" whenever you feel a blush coming on. I mean seriously, who cares what other people think?! Just get on with your life, enjoying whatever it is that you do... and stop these pointless, self-destructive negative thoughts. Stop devoting time and energy to this condition and just COMPLETELY ignore it. There is nothing wrong with you! Learn to accept yourself. Over time, your confidence will begin to improve, like a muscle that gradually becomes stronger with more exercise. In other words, it won't happen overnight, but if you make a real and genuine effort - each and every day - you'll notice the gradual change. Don't ever give up. Learn to genuinely ACCEPT YOURSELF. Nobody else is going to do it for you - it has to come from within you. ACCEPT YOURSELF!
  3. I can't do that weekend, but I can probably do the weekend after.
  4. Indeed, this forum appears to be dying. This will probably be my last post here, at least for a while. I will be deleting ESFB from my bookmarks. With all due respect, I find the SAUK forums much better - you can find me over there, under the username "wjfox". I can also be contacted via my personal website (link in signature). Bye for now, and good luck everyone... 8)
  5. Thanks to whoever deleted the spam. I checked that guy's profile and he managed to wrack up over 4000 posts... unbelievable. There are still a couple of threads here: http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=9505 http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=9504
  6. The forums have been spammed to death! Could somebody please clean up this utter mess - http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=15&topicdays=0&start=100 http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=14 http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=13
  7. Yes, it's a great site. I've been viewing it a lot recently. I can really identify with the posters on there - it's great to read their stories and realise there are so many other people going through the same problems as me.
  8. I use propranolol, which is a beta blocker.
  9. Well, it's the afternoon here in London. Just a typical day really - keeping myself to myself, hardly talking to anyone in the office, avoiding eye contact. I've only blushed once today and that was only a minor blush. In about half an hour I'm going home, and this evening I plan to watch "24" on DVD.
  10. Yes, I've noticed this. Same thing happens with sneezing, as well.
  11. Me too. Utterly, utterly sick of this wretched condition.
  12. Well done mate! Let us know how today goes.
