Lazy eye low self esteem

I've had a lazy eye (strabismus) noticably since I was 10 or so and in the past I have been bullied about it. It's really hard to look people in the eye when engaging in conversations as I tend to think they are judging me and I feel insecure about it. I was wondering if anyone else here suffers from the same thing and how do they cope with it x

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. It hurts to hear that you have been the victim of bullying. People can be so cruel, children included.
I am certain you will hear from community members who have a similar experience to share.

In the meantime, I found some articles that you might find helpful.

Wishing you well,
