    feeling down

    Hey all! My name is Tess and I'm a new member to this forum. I was born without half of my left arm at the elbow. I have wonderful friends and family, and grew up with much confidence and often cracked jokes about my arm. But starting about a year ago the staring really started to get to me and I've been very self-conscious of my nub and sometimes find myself trying to hide it when meeting new people. I get this idea in my head that once someone realizes I am missing an arm they will be freaked out or if I meet a guy he will no longer be interested in me. How does everyone else cope with these feelings? Hope everyone had a great weekend!
