I really need to tell my mom about my gynecomastia so that I can go for surgery but I just can't make myself do it. I'm almost 22, I've had it since I was 13, I've missed out on so much because of it, but I just can't tell anyone about it. It is just so embarrassing and emasculating. I've been telling myself for YEARS now that I need to tell her about it, and that I will the next time I see her (I'm in college) but I just CAN'T seem to do it! It's like there's a mental block there after hiding it for so long. Was anyone else in this situation?
