  1. UK, I am currently talking to my gp. Is your ets going to be on nhs?
  2. good luck with ets, yeah mine started randomly at school, did you have a trigger?
  3. Hey, the main problem for me is blusing\flushing, I don't have rosacea.
  4. This sounds like a good idea, excessive blushing is not recognised enough. Good luck with your project!
  5. aw I'm sorry, that sounds extremely hard. your sister and best friend sound really lovely tho, most people like to tease someone who turns red. I am also scared to try the exposing method, people always say you should go out of your comfort zone however, if I have a bad blushing experience it just knocks my confidence further. Have you tried taking any medication or tried out any kind of therapy?
  6. thank you, very well put, you are completely right
  7. That does sound annoying but its not about the appearance of it for me, its just the fact people notice as I go from white to red
  8. Im pretty sure its blushing because flushing is due to illness or temperature and usually lasts for longer
  9. thank you, that is completely true. I wouldn't mind if I had rosacea, its just the fact that I go from white to red in a conversation so it is noticeable
  10. Yeah, flushing is due to illness/temperature and blushing is due to emotion
  11. Its from social anxiety mainly, so yeah ig stress and nerves
  12. Perks of having pale skin. I dont just get cute little pink spots on my cheeks, i full on look like ive been slapped lol
  13. yeah sure, but you could just dm your snapchat name or I could say mine?
  14. Do you have snapchat or anything? I don't want to seem too forward or anything but it has been so great talking to someone who has had such a similar experience
  15. haha very true, I find it frustrating that there is such a seemingly small thing stopping me from living my life. Btw, are you male or female?
  16. That is exactly how I feel, I don't know how I can be happy with my blushing. I would love to be able to go to uni and study zoology/biochemistry etc. How about you?
  17. I'm sorry, it is a really lonely condition to have. My parents are quite supportive but they are pressuring me to get a job and complete my education etc. I am trying to find a job where social interaction is limited and not focusing on what I would enjoy. What are your plans for career and education?
  18. That is so true, interacting with other people is such a vital part of life. I am in a similar situation to you, I had to quit my education and I have lost some close friends. Do you have anyone that is supportive of you or someone you can confide in?
  19. I have tried taking beta blockers and hypnotherapy but nothing has helped. Hows your social life? Do you have a job?
  20. Me too! I always make sure I am able to cover my face or get out of a situation where I will blush. Yeah thats true, maybe its hormonal?
  21. hii, I have suffered around 2 years too, and I also have social anxiety which has basically dictated my life. My blushing is not unusually uncomfortable however I have come to hate the sensation as it is linked to many bad experiences haha. Don't apologise for the questions, after all isn't that what this site's about:) What methods have you tried to combat blushing and where are you from?
