Why does it make you depressed? It's better than looking like a zombie or this guy , we're all different but that's what makes life cool. There's nothing wrong with you, there's no reason to be depressed.

Livingindreams, I used to blush some to. What I read is that being embarrassed/blushing is feeling shame about yourself. Do you feel bad about yourself, like you aren't very valuable? Also, remember that a lot of people blush and they don't get upset about it. It is okay to blush. Don't feel more shame about blushing. Some people actually think that blushing is cute. What I hear you saying is that you are getting depressed because of this blushing problem.

Re: please please help...


I did a quick search on the web and came up with the following little gem:

Facial Blushing (erythrophobia) is a sudden reddening of the face, which happens in response to certain social situations and is very embarrassing. Facial blushing has been associated with overactive sympathetic nervous system, and has been treated effectively with endoscopic thoracic sympathicotomy (ETS).

I thought I had heard about this. Under board rules, we aren't allowed to put e-mails or websites in posts, but I think if you research the underlined terms, you would find a lot of info about the subject, and possible treatments.

^Do you realy believe what you wrote or are you just trying to make her feel better because that's a load of BS.

Have your Dr. prescribe beta blockers like Propanalol. That's the only thing that will help and you have to take a high dose. For me it was 100mg and that helped a lot but not completely.

You lose some energy and can't do a lot of physical stuff so you have to work your life around it. It sucks but it's better than feeling like you do now.
