My nose is something I've been immensely insecure about ever since I can remember. My nose is ruining my social life and I restrain from social activities often because of how insecure I feel about my nose. I dread sitting in class next to people, the only thing I can think about it that they're looking at my nose and how ugly it is. I've been bullied by kids because of my nose for a long time and would cry myself to sleep countless times for months because of how unhappy I was with my appearance.
I've been begging my mom to get a nose job ever since I was about 12 years old but unfortunately we do not have the finances to make this a possibility for me. I struggle everyday with body and face dysmorphia, causing a lot of panic attacks and mental breakdowns. Being outside and walking past a window and catching a glimpse of my nose is enough to ruin my whole day or even week. I feel trapped and helpless, like I didn't chose the face I have and feel as if I was unfortunate.
I'm graduating high school this year and it would mean the world to me if I could walk into college feeling and looking more beautiful and confident. As I mentioned before, these breakdowns can be quite severe and being in college far away from home without my mothers support during these episodes is going to be extremely difficult. I believe a rhinoplasty would be a huge factor in improving my mental health.
I've tried so hard to love myself as I am but no matter how hard I try my nose is something that just causes me inner sadness and pain. I don't want to feel like this anymore, ugly and rejected.
If anyone has a little bit of money to spare and is generous and kind enough to help me and support me on my journey I would be eternally grateful.
