Dear user, from your speech I can understand your ongoing suffering and your difficult life, it is clear that you are not enjoying your daily life, this makes you feel depressed and anxious so much. Your continuous thinking on this untreatable body built will makes you so frustrated and hopeless one during your coming future. Therefore, the first thing you should focus on, is your thoughts, believes and ideas about your body image. You should accept this fact and deal with it normally. Try to focus to achieve some notable life goals such as high education, friendship, and amazing job. Talk with yourself about your body built which unfortunately can’t be repaired medically or surgically. Try to demonstrate your strong points in your personality through your social interactions with the people surround you, talk with some trustworthy people to help you choose convenient achievable goals. In addition to all above suggestions I think you should consult an online specialist for further help. Take Care
