Hi Everyone...this may be an obvious question, but it's something I'm struggling with desperately. Is it "normal" to have a horrible self-image when you are in a depressive state? I am having such a hard time with this. I feel so ugly and ashamed of what I think I look like. I mean, I don't even want to go out anywhere and hide behind sunglasses if I have to. I feel so badly about how I look, but am too paralyzed by fear for some reason to go get a haircut (what if I look worse and feel worse than I do now?). I mean before I could have a day that I didn't look my best, but was able to laugh it off and not let it ruin my life, but now I am so depressed and feel so ugly that I'm obsessed with it! It's like my perception of things have changed. How I feel about myself has dropped significantly since I've become depressed. Just wondering if anyone else feels this way and what they did about it. I want to feel better so badly, feel good about myself, but I can't. Any ideas? Thanks so much...
