I am a 32-year-old single male, and I was recently diagnosed with Rosacea. I am still in the mild stage of it, and I am working with doctors to do everything I possibly can to keep it under control. I understand there are many treatment options, and I am willing to spend the time and money exhausting any and all of those if necessary.
However, I am finding that as it gradually gets a bit worse week by week, I am getting very anxious about how it will effect the way I look. It’s also compounding my fears of ending up alone. I feel like the women that I now share a mutual attraction with won’t be attracted to me any more if this continues.
So my question is, if this does continue to get worse, what are some suggestions of how to cope with it, both with how I see myself and how the opposite sex sees me.
