    Shyness from looking different

    Has anyone ever found a way to get over shyness from a change in appearance? I have to facial issues that make me very uncomfortable meeting new people and some of it is my fault.

    Five years ago I developed third nerve palsy and I never totally recovered. Long story short, I can't open my right eye all the way and it turns out to the side.

    Last year I decided to get a nose job to boost my confidence and it totally got botched. Since then I've lost all my confidence and not sure what to do. I've become really anti-social since the nose job.

    Can you get your nose fixed to help your appearance?

    Unfortunately, you see yourself more critically than anyone else have to feel confident to get rid of this feeling. No one else is looking at you as critically as you are looking at yourself.

    As far as the palsy goes..I have MS and have had bells palsy twice...each time it has recovered. Have you seen a neurologist about this? There is help to get the nerve to regenerate.

    Try not to be so hard on yourself...others are not focusing on this...its your personality that matters. Be a good person on the inside and the outside wont matter as much! But, if your nose is bothering you, its a pretty simple fix to get some opinions from doctors to get whatever you dont like fixed.
