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 just feel like i am crazy... i keep doubting myself constently. I think i am trans, but everyone says no.  Maybe i am just confused and lost in a sea of raw emotions.  I keep feeling like i am trans, but i dont honestly know anymore. Maybe i am just confused myself, or just delusional.   Maybe i should just stop and expect me beginning so uncomfortable in my own skin.    Sorry for the vent. I just feel like it the only place i can express myself, i guess.   Thanks for reading. Sorry for the vent.

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!

      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life.

      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved.

      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
    • tracy_j
      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy
