have been having some issues with my skin over the past few years. loose, saggy, rubbery, stretchy. but man oh man. over the past 2 months or so it has taken a complete nose dive. its SO loose and stretchy ALL OVER my body. it used to just be my mid section, sides and butt. and the underside of my arms and sometimes my neck but now its everywhere. it feels like my skin isnt even connected. like im wearing a skin suit like fuckn buffalo bill! this is horrible! i want to cry. i have. im wondering if i do have ehlers danlos syndrome.
i have been drinking a ton of coffee which i know is bad for collagen and i do smoke too. like a chimney. but so do like a billion people on earth so there have to be other factors!
side note : i want to quit smoking but everytime i try it makes my derealization SO bad that i can only last about 3 days before i completely loose it. need that dopamine and im scared ill never be able to stop smoking**
mybe its low estrogen? i know its needed for collagen synthesis. dudes i can not describe how bad it is. my arms are like sleeves of skin. i can pull two inches of skin off my calf muscles. oh and my muscles are mush too.
was looking at pics from a year and a half ago when i was originally freaking out about my skin and id do anything to even end up back there!
i dont know how much more i can take of this
never. ending. nightmare.
