Mental Health - @mylifeinmyskin

Hi! My name is Lena. I am 23 years old. I am wearing white for mentalhealth. I’ve been dealing with body dysmorphia (feeling like the ugliest person on earth), suicidal thoughts and obsessive compulsive disorder for almost 10 years now. It all started when I got acne at the age of 13. I always felt like my skin is so ugly, gross and that this is everything that people see or what matters most about me. A year and a half ago I had a big mental breakdown when I didn’t leave my bed anymore and couldn’t go to work. I finally decided to start a therapy and take medication. It will probably never be totally gone. But it’s gotten a lot better. And now I am here to raise awareness and share my story, because I feel like we need to end the bad stigma around mental health." @mylifeinmyskin
