I think you should go for it Marionette! Do not wait for a cure go and accomplish your goals. My first year with fbo was in college. I learned different coping mechanisms like finding a quieter less trafficked library, staying away from people who would tend to make comments, bringing baby wipes, taking a shower after a bm, spraying perfume altho sometimes it bugs ppls allergies. I found it okay, I did meet some ppl altho I can't say we hung out outside school. I got involved in a study group which was fun at times. Getting involved in something like a volunteer or study group is good for those w/ severe bo, I know in my case I had a hard time meeting people there without it. I finished my degree in the end. Sometimes in crowded lecture halls I would sit at the back where there would be less people. Some ppl did call me names sometimes like in the summer when I was sitting right next to them and using a home-made organic deodorant and made a few comments sometimes but I brushed it off. My odor is severe tho, most ppl would not get so much comments. 90% of the time tho there was no comment about my odor.
