I have a problem which is destroying my life im only 19 and i have this problem i have red broken veins popping up all the time i keep a mental note of where they are and am always checking myself with a light and mirror evrywhere if any new ones have formed or others have got bigger

another problem i have is blue veins on my chest , thighs, bottom of my legs, my arms, im so depressed over these problems i dont even want to get out of bed in the morning and stay in bed all day just to avoid checking myself im compulsive and upset about this i dont know what i can do and am at the end of my tether.

I know its genetic as i see them on my mum but its horrible i wouldnt mind if i was 40 or something but im young want enjoy life but i spend most my time checking myself.

anyone else with my problem am i alone?
