Unhappy Cold Sores - Totally Bummed

For the past two years, my skin has been perfect, no zits, bumps, ailments, nothing. Since I was about 5, from what I can remember, I would get kisses and hugs from probably over half of the 500 people in my close family. At that age, I was completely oblivious to what HSV-1 was, and if any of my...

were you treated differently after gaining a lot of muscle?

I have been scrawny my whole life, and it doesn't help that I'm also short. Before I started bulking up, I weighed a measley 120 lbs. People generally do not take me seriously, including girls. Since we already have a thread for people to share their stories of going from being obese to being...
