    Psychosurgery

    I've been reading up on Psychosurgery recently and I must say I'm very tempted, the voice I hear is almost constant throughout the day and no amount of medication seems to be able to silence him. As far I know they drill a small hole in the back of the head and go in with a laser and burn away...

    Self hatred

    How do I stop myself from wanting to be someone else. I’m recovering from an eating disorder and I have been for a few years but I can’t help but want to change myself. I’ve even looked into surgery for liposuction etc I’m that insecure. I want to like myself and not feel ugly and fat.

    I have to have surgery on my ears for the third time. I feel like this time it's more of a complicated operation. I can't tell if my ears are too far from my head or not, and if they get put too close my skull will look ridiculously narrow for life, as my head is quite narrow. It's literally a...
