Hey man. I don't know what you look like, but we must be twins because you are telling my story. About 3 months ago, I was sitting next to my classmate in Spanish and noticed he had a really bad smell. This happened for the next couple days and finally at my breaking point he started smelling better. The next week, I started noticing that I had a smell. I never had one before, but it was like it just transferred over to me. Now it's a new semester and I'm sitting by one really cute girl, another girl I have a crush on, and a guy who seems really nice. All of these people are really nice and I think for and hour and a half, How can I put these people through this? I have done everything. I've cleaned my behind really well when I go to the bathroom. For 7 hours at school, I feel like I need to go no. 2 but I really don't. I use an anti-perspirant powder, deoderant, really expensive body scrub and nothing is working. I haven't been able to focus at all in classes. Because of this, my grades in 2 classes have dropped to an A- and a B+. Soon, the quarter will end and I can't get valedictorian. I have also had the chance to be with a girl I have had a crush on for 3 years and I had to turn her down. I feel I have been losing at life, and at some points want to break down and quit this whole charade. I'm only a freshmen!!! I can't deal with this pain. I even overheard a girl talking about my smell and I wanted to leave the class right then and there. I have also had to distance myself from people and be anti-socialist. I talk to my friends and family and they awkwardly say I don't smell but myself and everyone knows I do. My mom gets mad when I bring this up and she doesn't listen. I think she is only trying to protect my feelings. I have really nice teachers and friends who I can't socialize with. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!! It is frustrating, humiliating, demoralizing, and above all else embarassing. I have gone through each day for the past couple months telling myself to stop and I'm being paranoid but I'm not. If you come up with a solution, please tell me. I cannot handle it anymore and I want do leave this place and be done. Sorry if I've been really dramatic, especially for a guy, it's just I have really big oppurtunities coming up and have to end this soon. Thank you.
