I had been in a long-term relationship with a man.
I had a son.
I went to college.
I was a doctor.
And I was pretty good at it.
The first few months, my wife and I were not very happy.
We thought it was going to be a long, messy divorce.
We were a bit paranoid about our son’s safety and we felt like we were over-protective of him, but I thought it would be a good way to learn something.
Then, in January, 2017, I went back to my husband’s place and there he was, a plastic surgeon, in a room with me.
He was doing what I thought he was doing.
He had a big smile on his face and I felt really, really bad for him.
But I thought, Oh, this is the guy I’ve been thinking about all these years.
I think I’ve finally gotten him.
The plastic surgery I’ve gone through is so much more than the one I had before.
He has a whole new sense of humor, he’s happier than he’s ever been, he loves his job and he’s also an amazing dad.
He’s had surgeries and he knows how to fix a lot of things that I’ve not even thought of yet.
And he’s willing to do it for me.
I’m like, I’m so grateful.
I feel like a better person, because now I can be the woman that I am.
He came back to the place I lived in, and I was still terrified.
I told him, I know this sounds crazy, but maybe we should try it.
I got a new job and I thought I was going through hell.
But it’s been really, incredibly fulfilling.
My wife, who’s also a doctor, is very supportive.
She tells me, You need to take a look at the photos.
The surgery is going to make a huge difference in your life.
It’s going to help you feel like you have something to look forward to.
You’re going to feel like your body is beautiful.
I really love the process of having a new look.
And the whole time I was feeling so scared, I was also looking forward to being happy.
But after a year, my husband is happier than I have ever been.
I can see that he feels better now than I ever did before.
The whole process of going through surgery is incredibly hard and I’ve never been happier.
I still feel anxious, but it’s less of a anxiety.
And it’s a really big relief to be able to talk to him and to see that I love him.
I love my husband, too.
He just wants to do things with me that he can control.
It just seems so weird that I was so nervous before.
I know I’m supposed to feel embarrassed about that.
And when you’re nervous about something, you can’t control how you feel about it.
But when you actually feel like it’s working for you, it’s really liberating.
The other thing is, I get so used to having surgery, but when I see the photos, it gives me hope.
And every time I see them, I think, This is what I should be doing for my son, too, because I know what I want.
And now, I can actually do it.
[Laughter] So, for now, if you’re a woman who has been struggling with an eating disorder, and you are looking for a health care provider that can help you with your recovery, check out the following list.
You can find your local clinic, your local health department, and your local doctor’s office, or even the National Eating Disorders Association.
They have a lot to offer, but you can also reach out to a mental health professional or an addiction counselor to talk about treatment options.
If you are having suicidal thoughts or have any other concerns about your health, check with your local mental health agency first.
