Breast Implants/General Plastic Surgery Anonymous 3999[Reply]

Does anyone here have breast implants? How did they affect your life? Do they hurt? Do they even feel like your own body? Has anyone here ever considered a boobjob?

Do most men consider fake breasts normal now? More and more young girls are getting them and male oriented media is dominated by women with implants. I’m pretty sure most men can’t tell the difference.

All plastic surgery discussion is welcome. Please stay reasonable and open minded, and don’t try to talk others into stuff they don’t want.

Do they hurt when boys squeeze them? How hard/soft are they?

Anonymous 8289

>>8282
Doesn't hurt. They are less soft than normal breasts, but I wouldn't say they are hard. Maybe more firm? My bf says they're soft.
I think softness also depends on where they place the implant (under skin only or under muscle).

>>8282
I got my first bf ever before getting the surgery. He was excited and now likes them a lot.

I was supposed to be getting a breast reduction before the pandemic hit, I have a DDD cup and they kill my shoulders and back. They also do not look proportionate with the rest of my body, so I am hoping to get a B or C cup. Moids and women alike have called me crazy for wanting them smaller, even though it is for health reasons. Usually, it's women with big chests themselves who are the most understanding.

As long as women are getting plastic surgery to make themselves, and not some moid, happy then I am all for it. Just do your research, look for a good surgeon, prepare for recovery and follow all post-op instructions.

I'm seeing a psychiatrist for the first time soon. I'm nervous but excited. Mostly nervous that she'll dismiss me or urge me into therapy instead of medication. I've tried counseling and it didn't help at all. But I'm slso hopeful that I can get a real diagnosis and some professional help. I think I have bpd, but even if I'm wrong I'll be happy with anything that can help me.

>are you in treatment or recovery right now?

I was in therapy from Nov 2018 to April 2019 and again from Nov 2019 to around June 2020. It helped a significant amount. The first time I stopped because I had to, the second time because I was feeling better. I'll start going again if I feel like I need it again.

>what has worked well for you in terms of overcoming symptoms?

I have pretty specific anxiety problem and I get very bad panic attacks. Making an emergency kit for my panic attacks has been one thing that helped a lot, the most helpful thing was probably the Jolly Ranchers. Sucking on candy during a panic attack is very calming because it forces your breathing to regulate a little more. Also working through a good anxiety workbook, journaling and therapy.

>thoughts on medication vs. therapy, different types of talk therapies or alternative approaches to medication?

I prefer therapy. My mom is a doc and has been trying to get me to take meds for a while now. Usually she has really good advice and she's always right, but for some reason this just doesn't sit right with me and it never has, even when I was depressed as a kid/young adult. I even got some around spring and just never took them because I was too nervous. I think it might be necessary in some cases though and if I get as bad as I did last winter when I almost offed myself I will probably take them.

>do you have any treatment horror stories/cringe therapist horror stories?

I once went to couples a therapist who told my partner that he should in no way help me when I have a panic attack and should basically just sit there and let me deal with it myself. While I understand the importance of not needing to rely on him to help me through my mental illness and anxiety, I don't think I'd be able to sit idly by if he was freaking the fuck out, panicking and couldn't breathe (which is literally what happens to me). He was legit there to learn what he could do to help in those situations. It was honestly really embarrassing for me since I felt like this woman thought I wanted him to "fix" me….but fuck her.

I’m kind of freaking out because I had my appointment… it seemed to go well… the psychiatrist said it sounded like I’m bipolar. When she asked about medication I’m taking I specifically said I don’t take any me, not even birth control. She prescribed me valproic acid and told me the only side effects were nausea and drowsiness. I decided to look up the medicine on my lunch break and wtf it’s all articles talking about how women should be on birth control while taking it and lots of articles questioning if it should even be prescribed to child bearing women. Both the prescription from the office and the pharmacy say nothing about not taking the medication when there’s a possibility of becoming pregnant. I feel betrayed. I mentioned a lot of times that I live with my boyfriend and mentioned sleeping together. But I’m just going to do the responsible thing and call tomorrow to ask if there’s another medication I can try.

>are you in treatment or recovery right now?
I take medication for OCD and depression but I am not in therapy. When I was younger I took Luvox but it completely annihilated my appetite. Once I was older I switched to Zoloft which was better in terms wanting to eat (it's still repressed though). I am so grateful that those SSRIs don't cause me to gain weight. They do wonders for my depression, the OCD not so much.

>what has worked well for you in terms of overcoming symptoms?

I have dermatillomania so it is helpful when people around me remind me not to pick, I tend to do it mindlessly. There have also been some studies on excoriation disorder that suggest that treating it like substance abuse is more effective than treating it like OCD, I would like to try that method to see if I have more success.

>thoughts on medication vs. therapy, different types of talk therapies or alternative approaches to medication?

I prefer one-on-one therapy, it allows me to open up more. Medication has been a lifesaver for me, but there are many people who struggle on it. Everyone, and their plan for treatment, should be individualized.

>do you have any treatment horror stories/cringe therapist horror stories?

I suppose I was the cringe one in this case. I was in a new therapy group for the first time which was targeted towards patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder. There was another lady who also had a skin-picking disorder, and she admitted to picking the scabs off her cat. I got quite angry about this, and the therapist ended up kicking me out. "This is a support group, not a judging group." This situation is why I avoid group therapy now.

>how much does your mental illness impact how you function day to day?

When I was younger I used to be extremely embarrassed about it, I never wore shorts or t-shirts. It really impacted my self-esteem as a teenager. My OCD was way more severe then as well, I lived in a house infested with bugs and itching was a major trigger of mine. Now that I am able to a) cope better thanks to therapy, and b) have more control over my environment I am doing much better. The scars have faded for the most part and I can wear all the clothes I like to wear now.

Was inpatient this past spring. Been in therapy for years. Currently on meds and seeing a therapist bi weekly.
>what has worked well for you in terms of overcoming symptoms?
I have a good therapist who knows me well and doesn't just spout bs or newage treatment plans at me. I try to stay active and have short term tasks or accomplishments so I don't feel useless. Doing dishes, cooking a meal, etc. Also having a dog forces me to at least care for him. I walk him multiple times a day which helps as well.
>thoughts on medication vs. therapy, different types of talk therapies or alternative approaches to medication?
The most effective treatment is the one that you actively participate in. If you don't want to recover, you won't. If you are pessimistic and overly critical, you won't get better. I've been in group therapies where people seem to just pass through, learning and achieving nothing, just so they can say they went to get help. In my personal experience, I enjoy a mix of group and individual therapy, DBT is most effective for my illness. I'm on the fence about anti depressants.
>do you have any treatment horror stories/cringe therapist horror stories?
I've had female therapists who insist on treatment via "natural/healing/new age" hippie shit. Meditation and prayer as answers to complex issues.
>how much does your mental illness impact how you function day to day?
I can function normally, but I have a hard time focusing. If I get triggered I usually dissociate and wait until I'm out of the environment to react.
>do you tend to tell others about your mental illness or keep it to yourself?
My family and friends know about it. I try hard not to be a person who uses it as an excuse for my behavior, so unless I really get pushed to the breaking point I try to not talk about it.
>if you don't consider yourself recovered now, what obstacles are keeping you from recovery/low impact from symptoms?

Pcos Anonymous 9482[Reply]

I hate having PCOS (poly cystic ovary syndrome). I hate it i hate it i hate it. It just seems to get worse and worse with the years. I can't lose weight, i'm really overweight and i've got a fuzzy face and neck. Not to mention my acne, its on my back, chest neck and face and I HATE IT. Sometimes i'll see very dark stubs of hair sticking out of my neck and everytime i just become so dreadful. some hair is even in the middle of my chest. The feeling of feeling like you look like a boy makes me so mad and sad. Is there anything a doctor could be able to do? I've considered lazer hair removal surgery but it costs a shit ton which makes me even angrier because transwomen get that shit for free. This is probably some sort of vent post but if anyone has any advice or just want to share their story they are welcome to.

soft feet Anonymous 9881[Reply]

How do I get nice soft feet? I have dermatillomania (skin picking disorder) focused on my soles and toenails and the bottom of my feet are rough. I've gotten it largely under control but I'm still insecure about how they look. I've tried babyfoot but the parts with thick skin stayed the same, it only affected the already soft-ish skin around them.

Here's a babby picture bc I'm not about to go looking up womens' feet on the internet.

I forgot to add, also thinking about how much I didn't want other people to see it, or worse, comment on it. Feet picking is probably easier to hide, but there are still times when your feet will be visible, even if it is only to your family or partner.

Essentially, all these things took the enjoyment out of picking and emphasized the negatives, making picking a less enjoyable thing to do.

These really do work, but they take a few days.

Also, moisturize your feet a lot.

>I have dermatillomania (skin picking disorder) focused on my soles

my sister…… I do this so much and I have terrifying zombie feet now. Sometimes I have deep cuts in my soles because I start taking off the hard skin with a nail clipper and tear it off too hard. You already mentioned babyfoot, for me it doesn't do anything for the really hard parts either but I still love using it because it satisfies my skin picking thing sooo much. I always have 2 packs in my nightstand (I use a cheapo version for 5 dollars per 2 socks and only do 1 foot at a time)

sorry for no contribution but yeah.

Counterpoint: wearing socks all the time encourages fungal growth. My toenails have been gross for years now because I used to do this.

>Do you have spotting in between periods?


>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
I was on the needle for almost eight years, and I would have stuck with it if not for the weight gain and the depression. Right now I am not on any birth control and I won't be anytime soon because I do not have a boyfriend, but if I do get back on it I will probably go for the copper IUD. I am very anxious at the thought of insertion, though.

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

About seven or eight days in total.

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

Never.

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

It depends on the day. The first day is okay, the second day is hell, the third day sucks and after that it's easy sailing.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

Even on my worst day it's about a two or a three. I am very lucky compared to some other ladies.

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
I've had an implant since 2015. Was on the pill for 4 years before that.

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

Pre-BC 7-10 days. On the pill and implant 3-6 days.

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

When the implant was first put in, and around the 3 year mark so I got it replaced. Originally the prescription info said 3 years, but the nurse told me it was ok for another year. I was tired of crazy spotting though, so I re-upped.

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

Pre-BC heavy. Currently medium-light.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

The pre-cycle mood swings were/are the worst. I don't get crazy abdominal cramps, but sometimes the crotch just feels heavy and sore.

When I wear eyeliner I always go for the wet n wild H2O proof liquid liner. My eyelids get super oily and that stuff never smudges off. I haven't tried many different eyeshadows, because like I said my eyelids are very oily and I can never get it to stick, but in my experience the too faced eyeshadows worked great as highlighters as well and stayed bright all day. I think if you want more dramatic lashes like in picrel, it would be worth it to try out a pack from amazon if you're comfortable buying from them. Usually the dramatic lashes I buy irl aren't as big as I want. And for lip gloss, I think you should try out a nyx butter gloss, they're super pigmented.

A n equivalent to the 'panty dropper'? Maybe Calvin Klein Euphoria. Loads of women wear it. It's heady and sensual, with a vanillic drydown that men generally love. A lot of critics are tired of fruity-woody fragrances, and so are biased against it, but they don't have any actual bad things to say. Another one might be Prada Candy, though unlike Euphoria, I haven't personally smelled that one on women out in the field. I know it sells, though.

It's dependent on your dominant hand. If you're left-handed, usually your right breast will be a bit larger, whereas if you're right-handed your left breast will be a bit larger. The same goes for size inconsistencies in other body parts (eyes, feet, ovaries, labia, testicles, etc.)
