Pyschiartric apt complete :)

Hello ladies!

How are u all? Well I hope! Just updating with my progress, I had my psychiatric meeting with a lovely man today called dr thomson who was great! He asked lots of questions about my past and childhood etc and then when on to the breast topic! I was very honest and told him everything and how I felt and he said he would agree breast augmentation would be a good solution however he then stated he wanted me to see another psychiatrist who could perform an assessment as he wanted a second opinion?? He then said he notices some traits of body dysmorfia because of the severity of my breast issues hence why he wanted a second opinion!

Has anyone else been diagnosed with this? He said I wouldn't need medication and that he thinks I am very emotionally stable and ok to go ahead but I'm just a bit paranoid that this may affect the process?

Any feedback much appreciated,

Many thanks,

Coral xx

hello sweetheart. I was diagnosed with body dysmorphia too. My doctor tried to get my breast augmentation done through the NHS but nothing came of it. To be honest i could have pushed it harder but was getting desperate and so decided to pay and go private. I was referred for cognitive behavioural therapy who diagnosed me but couldn't treat me. My doctor then put me on fluoxetine, 60mg a day which is the best medication for BDD. I have been SOOOOOOO much better since i've been on it. Here to chat if you need to. I understand how this feels Hug

Hello Amy!
Thanks so much for your quick reply! Ur picture us awesome! He hasn't actually diagnosed me with it yet but he did say because I am obsessive with organisation and cleaning and don't like looking in mirror and have photos of 'ideal' breasts that it was signs of having body dysmorfia. He's going to refer me to another man to get assessed! After looking on Wikipedia to see what bodydysmorfia is I do have a few symptoms and I am quite relieved to know that this could be why I feel so self conscious, even though I am more than happy with the rest of me. What do the tablets make u feel like? Hopefully they won't see this as me being 'unstable' for Nhs federal but if it is then I think a wee bank loan may be in order :)

Thanks so much xxxxxxxxc

no you won't be seen as unstable hun. The tablets relax ur mind.... they help to keep ur thoughts more rational and focus on other things in ur life, not just the area of your body that you hate. It hasn't gone away totally, but since being on medication (fluoxetine is a form of prozac)and having surgery, i deal with it better now. It isn't such a big thing in my life now :thumbs: i worry and think less, and enjoy life more
