Ok - i'll go first.
I am most self-conscious of my chest, i have a deformity of my chest called "Pectus carinatum" luckily you can get a chest brace that pushes the deformity back down and it can be worn under clothes (the brace is basically like braces for teeth) I've had this brace for a year now and im nearly at the end of needing to wear it , even though my chest is back in to the right position i still feel the need to cross my arms over my chest when i go to the swimming pool.

Eesh. I have big boobs. I dance, I work out, I exist, and in all things they bother me. I have a pathological fear that one day I'll wake up and they've decided to take a trip south for the winter of my life (KILL ME).
I'm fully aware that they look cracking in the right dress though, so it's not all bad.

My weight. I'm 5'8 and 145 lbs. I just can't help but feel like I'm EXTREMELY skinny.

Running. I have a lack of stamina because I don't do CV in the gym. This means I have weak, skinny legs and I run pretty silly. This is partially to blame because I have really bad balance because of ear problems so I can't run straight.

I had the opposite of that. Pectus Excavatum. I had surgery when i was 12 or something that corrected it though. I had a bar put into my chest for like... 3 years or something. It was never something I let bother me though. My hair though... Thats what im most self conscious about. Ive always had thick curly hair, but it started to thin out a bit recently. Terrified of balding.

My looks are probably the least of my worries. I have fucked up teeth but frankly I can say I am blessed to be able to be born with many other features deemed acceptable by beauty standards. Though like many people I get self conscious sometimes too. When I was younger in high school/college I was self conscious about my grades. I was obsessive and extremely paranoid. It built endurance, and i felt confident being about to say I did well. But it was largely shallow and I think I wasn't really confident at all.

I'm sure there are some great things to feel good about amongst all the things you don't like. Sometimes people can get satisfaction knowing they are less worst off than others. It's true

Good to hear I'm not the only one with a chest defect. How does your chest look now? Also I've got thick hair , I think your hair is just thinning out over age I don't think you'll go bald

My chest is completely normal now. I actually forget that it was once a problem at all. I've never regretted the surgery.

I had the choice to get surgery or have this brace , I choice the brace because I thought I would have a scar on my chest, do you have a scar?

My friend and I was diagnosed with alopecia a year ago. I was surprised about how easy i was able to move on from it. It just became a new normal. Watching buzzfeed videos about it helpd haha. I'm pretty sure I know what is causing it, and I have a vague idea how to solve it. But anyways, my doctor prescribed me biotin to temporarily fix it. Just note the word temporarily. Eating healthier, avoiding certain food, and exercising (getting sunlight) is probably way better than taking a dose of vitamins. i also recommend Garnier Fructis fall out shampoo. Not just for fall out, it's a great shampoo for any type of hair

Most importantly, visit your doctor. It might be a serious health issue rather than aging or stress. Hope I didn't bombard you with useless information

I have a few scars on my sides where the bar was inserted into my chest. Because they're on my sides they aren't really noticeable.

I'm sure my diet is a part of the problem. I'm really working on it though. I really hate visiting doctors though. I'm terrified of the things I might find out.

I am self-conscious of looks. Not severe like I want to lose a ton of weight, but I just want to have "improvements" around certain parts of my body. Now what I do to diminish my self conscious is eating healthy and control my cravings.
