I've been an exhibitionist for last 10 years and I've recently been exposed for what I am. All my friends found out what I've been doing and that broke me down mentally so much I had to be hospitalized for 2 months in a mental hospital. I've been humiliated and shamed to a point where I just want to disappear or be dead. I don't know how to cope with all this pain I feel, Its like I'll never have a normal life and won't be able to go to work since I don't want to be found out by coworkers later on. I can't relax and its constantly on my mind, I can't sleep, I lost appetite and I cry all the time.I was thinking about suicide but I just cant hurt the ones I love. I would really just want to be dead because of all this pain and shame I feel.
Does anyone know how to cope with my situation since its very frustrating and hopeless? Thanks!
Beyond that, honestly, if you had a normal life *before*, why would this change things? If anything, your behavior is better (right, because your behavior is under control), so if things were good before, they should be *better* now.
Also, most people care less about stuff like this than we think they do...and are more forgiving than we think they are.
Yup and Yup. You'll be last week's news soon, SHAMED. Just as soon as some other juicy gossip gets generated.
But - in the interests of  nosiness,  a need-to-know in order to advice/suggest effectively, and  nosiness () - what are we talking about, exhibitionism-wise? Did it by any chance involve parks or woods? (PS remember you're completely and utterly impossible to identify over the ether, no matter WHAT you did that you assume is so unique.)
Tell me what (or near-enough what via hints) you got exposed for and then I and others will be able to make useful damage-limitation or -avoidance suggestions.
Human Problem = Human Solution always available somehow, somewhere.
I'm also suffering from psoriasis thats why I was healing my condition by the river with sunlight. Through time I got comfortable being naked where others can see me and slowly became an exhibitionist. I've done it on some more public places but mostly by the river.
So which of your friends have such a giant problem with that?
Is anyone ACTIVELY shaming you or threatening to call you out or something? Or is it more like you are afraid that someone will? We often make things so freaking huge in our minds, but then the reality comes and it's nothing like that.
I mean it's not like your a nudist or something! But even if you were BIG DEAL...that's your choice. And they can all just take a flying leap. They are just really deep down jealous that you are so comfortable in your own skin. And I personally applaud you for that!
You are smart, beautiful, strong, and aware of your individuality...and if they can't deal with it then it is their problem NOT yours. You just do you!
Down to make themselves feel better . Get back to the sun baking , he'll where ya at I'll give ya company and nobody will ever come close enough to see you again , if they do see us I'll make them die of shock so no worries lol jk , but really do your thing , don't change for anyone .
