Moon face sounds so cute though.

It's going on my list of pet names.

That's basically steroid bloating weight gain face.

Were talking more of an actual change in bone structure, usually seen in the forehead or cheeeen (Mexican for chin)

Yeah I was thinking of the jaw change you can get on these awesome substances. A guy I know used to have an average face, now he got dat sharp jawline, plus he ripped like mad.

Unfortunately he also takes shedloads of ket, coke and mdma so he's probs gonna come a cropper.

Worth the risk for all the vajayjay he gets though.

You can get acne

Some steroids can actually stunt growth as well.

^^^Yeah, it's really not enough to have any noticeable adverse effects - not on me anyway. I remember telling someone who had a bit of experience working around medicines or some such and she told me about moon face.

I take enough to keep the snots at bay

^ No problem. Not sure it's what was being spoken of though

^When I take Beclometasone I just get achey eyes. This is with the prescription version anyway. When I tried beconase I had yucky blood crusts.

They tried me on a newer one called Fluticasone, which gave me more blood but no eye pain.

.. o/t.

I'm not very knowledgeable of medications - i'm very reluctant, so i'm pretty glad that i don't suffer any shit with the roids... apart from very crusty nostrils in the morning, it's all good.

I'd definitely go private, get all the blood work done and get a prescription if I could afford to.
There does seem to be lots of evidence to support this especially for men as they get older.

Possibly related to BDD... I'm losing weight, and I'm the lightest I've been in years (still a bit to lose though) but I'm more self-conscious than ever about being fat. Objectively I know I'm thinner, clothes that were tight on me a year ago are now a little baggy, but still I'll stare at myself in the mirror, especially when I've bought new clothes, and despair at how huge I am. I'm 11 stone, I can fit comfortably into a medium size shirt, but somehow the inner cries of 'Bloated! Too wide! Flabby! Dumpy! Embarrassing! Shameful!' feel all the louder.

At least try to make sense, brain.

I'm pretty sure that the James Gandolfini comparison wasn't meant in a negative/unpleasant way at all. I'm sorry you've perceived it to be negative but I genuinely think that wasn't the intention.

I don think people mean ill when they do this comparison thing,but If you have some issues it can hurt, unintentionally. I have an aunt who sez I look like joey ' **** my life ' styles...I'm sure people would say it's a compliment...all I hear is you look like a ****ing child. I know they don't mean it like that. It's my own batshit i guess.

Family eh?

Comparisons like that aren't necessarily putting you on the same level of attractiveness as the other person, it might just mean you share some subtle, and fairly benign, features with them. Not saying you do, I'm not a good judge of that sort of thing, but it isn't necessarily intended as an insult (and I'm fairly sure in this case it wasn't meant as one)

How do people feel about acne on a person's face? My bdd is mainly based around bad skin and I know that people don't care if I'm good looking or not, but if it's skin blemishes then would that make you not want to speak to that person? I basically think the other will think I'm disgusting, a preoccupation carried over from my teenage years that strikes at my very core.

Surely you do judge people on their looks, you do it when for your own safety without thinking much about it. Everyone does.

I didn't say solely nor say it's possible to make a complete decision. It is, however, human nature.

Is it a BDD related thing (or maybe OCD) to obsess over your clothes feeling 'right' on you? Partly how they look, and being convinced they're hanging lopsided, or bunching up strangely, like you're misshapen and Real People clothes can't fit you properly. But also this intense feeling of them being wrong somehow, like a mental itch you can't ignore. Whatever size t shirt I wear, the neck seems loose, and I struggle to take my mind off it. The feeling I get is completely disproportionate to the problem, like my mind is prioritising it and screaming 'SOMETHING MUST BE DONE ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW'. Also, the self-critical part of my brain is saying, 'Nice one Quasimodo, can't even wear a ****ing t shirt properly'.

In summary: Bleh.

I thought it might be a good idea to take my laptop into the garden to do some work. Well, I didn't think it was a good idea because I knew that I'd barely be able to see the screen.

I can see the screen and just about see what I'm typing, but what I can mainly see is the reflection of my face. UGH.

It was me who said that.

In that pic he posted he did remind me of Gandolfini.

It wasn't so much is actual features, it was just his look at time in that pic, and of course I said reminded.

I didn't mean he was the spit of James Gandolfini.

In another pic he posted I actually thought he looked a bit like Ben Affleck.

In his avatar pic, he looks like neither of them.

I wasn't being mean.

Someone else saw what I saw when I mentioned Gandolofini, and Affleck.

Wesley Snipes though, hell no lol

I wasn't being mean to ABC. ABC is better looking than me.

I think he's took what I've said and taken it that he's the spit of Gandolfini.

Someone said they thought he looked like Justin Timberlake but I can't see that.

We all look different at different angles, in different lighting conditions etc, and we all have different opinions.

I don't think there's anything wrong with Gandolfini btw and thought he was decent looking bloke.

I wouldn't mind being compared to him instead of Phil Mitchell.

Better than Phil Mitchell.

At least I was compared to pre pisshead Mitchell I suppose.

I don't find Mitchell ugly I just think he's really plain and boring, and I actually look worse than him, so yeah, bollocks!

The loneliness and the fact that it's completely self-inflicted is getting to me atm. You can kinda snap out of SA, in that you get those times where you surprise yourself and meet someone but not with this. It's static.

Being a monster. Essentially, being one, or making peace with feeling like you are being one. I can't embrace that identity.

Just screwed how starved of touch I am and how deathly I feel, when you are so cut off you feel like a spectre oozing through life. Everybody gets on with it while you just. ..haunt various places, not really experiencing anything. I'm never going to learn how to be human.

I am a carcass of a human being, I do accept it but I still feel like if I had one thing not corrupted by this house/general misery then I could be so much better. Just holding a guy would probably dislodge about six months of nuttiness alone.

Suicide's never far from my mind but sadly I haven't lost all hope quite yet - or lost any cowardice about pain either
