Following on from the weight thread, my issue is my skin which for the past few months has been breaking out in really bad, painful spots, mainly but not exclusively in the same place - to the left of my nose! It's obviously hormonal as am approaching a certain age but never having suffered spots as a teenager, this is a big shock to me. Today I didn't feel like going out because it's so bad and was almost relieved to have report writing as an excuse to stay in! It's only my face that's affected. I feel really self-conscious and even my daughters have commented - sympathetically but with obvious pity! Any suggestions??
