"You'd do better to spend the money on therapy." That's what I directly tell MIL when she talks about her boobs being too small for her body. She needs to wake up.

I would consider having a couple of stretch marks removed when I am done having babies if they continue to be as painful as they are now. That said, they probably will be better by then, or I will be so disgusted with the potential side effects of the surgery that I won't do it.

Yeah...you've really got to wonder what's going on inside someone's head when they do something like that. Mind you, she's got serious mental problems, anyway...she's fully delusional about almost everything in life, so I guess this isn't much different. It's so heartbreaking, though. Plus, we've talked here about the effect all this has on our daughters. What on earth does her little girl get from this kind of looks focused self-hate?

No surgery for me unless it involves a health-related matter. I know that I will have to get some veins operated on eventually because I have bad circulation in one leg due to pregnancy. But just for looks, no.
