Rosacea and your self-esteem
When a chronic condition like rosacea affects the way you look, it can also affect your self esteem and the way you feel about yourself. Managing your feelings is part of managing the condition as a whole, and shouldn’t be overlooked.
One of the most important things to remember is that you are not alone. There are millions of people around the world who are affected by the condition and many are experiencing the same feelings that you are.
You can look online for support groups where you can voice your concerns and speak to other people who also suffer from rosacea. Rosacea Uncovered is a great place to start looking for information and support. Family and friends are also there for emotional support, so you should consider talking to them about your experiences.
If you are worried that your condition is seriously affecting your emotional wellbeing, you should make an appointment with your GP to discuss it. Because they have experience with people who suffer from rosacea, they will be better able to understand what effects it can have on you and can provide professional support where neeeded.
