Sunken eyes at 19?

Recommended Posts

Guest melanie maritz

I noticed that my eyes are a bit sunken , actually noticed it when I was 17. I can't be getting this because of age can I? I hope not but it doesn't go away as I thought it might and it's not very appealing. Of course I can hide it with makeup on my photos but I can't do that in real life.

I read on the internet that you can get it from stress and sleep deprivation and being too skinny.

I'm not too skinny, everyone says I am but I am not, my tummy bulges out for goodness sake. I think I get 8 hours of sleep most of the time and I don't think I stress more than the average person my age. So what can it be? Am I getting old fast or something? And can I do something to make it better or take it away?

Everybody has their own face shape. Try to not be so hard on yourself.

My eyes are deepset as well dear. It is just the way we were made and many consider it attractive. I agree with Jenn, be easy on yourself.

Hugs,

Charlie

I know that some people have it since for ever, but didn't have it before

At 19 you are still developing your final adult body, and genetic males need until about 25 to finish the job there. Females stop when they become pregnant the first time, or about 25 also if the other does not take place. I actually have very deep set eyes as the result of some ethnic genes still hanging around for 4 generations. As a child, my eyes were not, if you look at them, that deep set. You are still a growing youngster with time on the young part of that to go. It is possible that in time, which you still have, the eye sockets behind your brow ridge may do some growing too.

If you are gettng worried though, I would suggest going and discussing it with an M.D. who is an adolescent medicine specialist

It probably isn't that bad. I tend to see a lot of flaws in my face and not see the good things. I'm trying to change that, but it's not easy

I have a dear young cis female friend. We were discussing life and i started complaining about my looks. She said "stop don't fall onto that trap, all girls go through the doubt and it does no good" As a male my looks were not so important. I can get hung up there now. Looking pretty is one thing but once i learn how to augment my good traits and back off of the flaws i've got to accept what i've got. Maybe if you think it is caused by illness you should ask your MD.

Hugs,

Charlie

you are beautiful. i am so jealous of your pic coz my parents won't let me transition until i'm 18. i wish i could be as beautiful as you. my eyes squint when i smile which is actually quite common and also everyone says i'm too skinny inclusing my doctor because i only weigh 51.5kg and I'm 1.77m tall. i think I'm fine. i weigh less than most other people in my year (both genders) even though I'm taller than almost all of them! be proud of yourself. you are very beautiful and i wish i was 19 so i can get out of this hole i'm in at the moment :)

      I think it's finding what suits you best. I have never got on with boyshorts at all. Not being over there, I won't go into brands but, in general, I have found quality panties better. Obviously womenswear is only designed to cover a small bulge so tucking is really essential.   I tend to wear bikini, hi-leg or full brief dependant on situation, how I am feeling or what I am wearing.   Tracy

      Thanks Charlize and everyone. I’ve done two days. The medication helps a lot.
    • mini
      thank all of you  for the splendid advice    
    • mini
      hello   i appreciate the advice as i was having a terrible time tucking and staying in place especially walking they were always slipping out or never in proper place.  I will be taking the tips and trying them out in the morning . I was afraid to try tape as hair would be pulled out. I will be trying the pull from behind and panty method as well as other great advice.    I do have one other question and that is going to gym as i am not allowed to use the other gym so how do i get used to being comfortable in those situations.

      I am not really sure where this is headed just now, but it does underscore the need for understanding of what and who Trans people are.  The mythology and the fantasy about us needs to be fully bashed out of some heads and replaced with better stuff.

      Welcome Markjvp,  Glad you found this forum. You'll find great support here and many with a similar back story.  One benefit you have at your age is time.  I put off doing anything about my situation until middle age.  You have access to support and knowledge that people my age could never dreamed of way back when!  Take advantage of them all.   My Best to you, Susan R🌷

      Those are words to live by.  Good for you and a big congratulations to you and your continued success.  Thank you for sharing your good news!   Warm Regards, Susan R🌷

      One of my psychology professors years ago liked to tell us that most M.D.s did not fully earn the Doctor part of their degrees, and they really should get a degree of Body Mechanic (BM) and I think he may have had it right in this case.  The guy knows the physical configuration of the human brain expertly as a technician but his ability to actually reason with his own brain on non technical matters is up for conjecture.

      Greetings Markjvp.  Your intro was fine.  Telling our family, especially at a young age is fraught with peril so I can relate to your story.  I am guessing you are about 16 so you still have some time to go before you graduate High School and can move out on your own, or go to college.  I know the time seems long, but in reality it's not.  Focus on your education as it will sustain you for the rest of your life.     As to starting transition, if that is your goal, a couple years will not make a huge difference.  You want to remain at home where you have a roof over your head and meals to eat.  Don't do anything rash.  Your family may or may not ever get "fixed" as this is their choice to understand.  Your choice is to be the best you that you can be.  Look around there are other stories like yours here.     Cheers, Jani

      This is so good to read that you have found the way to sobriety that suits you.  You have so much to be happy and grateful for, especially for the inner strength you posses.  Yeah for you!  You will get over your shyness and insecurity in due time.  I believe in you.  Your sponsor sounds like a caring person.     Hugs, Jani
