Hi Skye! Thank you! Only just spotted your post :)

Hi Snipper, thank you! Yes Tucan had some positive advice there :) Yes, also, I have a doctors appointment booked already, though will possibly try and move it to before the weekend, just to ward off things, in case they start slipping. Every day is a new day, and even though sometimes things don't go as well as planned, the next day may well be entirely or partly different, even if past behaviour has been a certain way, tomorrow and every day afterwards could well be different, if you know what I mean, in a positive way.

Even though I've had a really good day with a course I was running today, I will still see the doctor and discuss this, in order to ward it off for the future :) Hope you are well. Appreciate your thoughtful comments, best wishes!

Whenever I have been swimming I have found that people really aren't that interested in looking at me/my body... I think because you're not sunbathing around the pool on a tropical island (well maybe you are haha but I'm not), most people are there just to exercise and focussed on getting whatever their goal is in the pool done.  Some pools dont allow you to wear 'non swimwear material clothing' in the pool (like cotton tshirts/shirts) because they can stretch in the water and drag you down/tangle up a bit (safety risk), thought it's worth knowing in case you want to check with the pool if they have any restrictions.  I used to wear 'rash shirts', which are like boarding/uv tshirts for surfing etc, but i found it just meant i had one more soggy piece of clothing to take home, and nobody was looking at me really, so i decided id just swim in my swimsuit (once youre in the water its hard to see what's happening on anyones skin anyway).

Swimming is great, it's worth the sometimes uncomfy dash into the pool haha :) hope you manage to get yourself there once your arm has healed some more!

People I find don't tend to look ate when they are swimming. They are too busy doing their own thing. I was really self conscious about scars. I am ok with it now. It does get easier especially once you realise that nobody had even noticed. As for swimwear I have no recommendations.

I canít at the moment due to a wound needing to heal. But Iíd like to. I have a physical illness which makes exercise difficult and swimming would probably be helpful. I have significant issues with body image but also would want 3/4 or full length sleeves to swim in. Does anyone have recommendations for swim wear or good experiences with swimming?
