Hello, I`m new here. I need to express my concern over my 34 year old daughter`s way of thinking. She has doubts about her sexuality and image which leads to anxiety, confusion, lack of concentration, mood swings and relationship difficulties. Just started going out with someone she met online. This guy seems nice, she likes him BUT he is of a small stature and a couple of inches shorter than her. She also states his head is small compared to his body. She compares him to others, not keen to show him to her colleagues..... she thinks that people will comment on him. At the same time she feels sorry for the way she treats him and causing insecurity in him. She did not mention anything about the way she thinks about him. Him being tall is of paramount importance to her as she likes tall, well build men. No matter what family and friends say to her.....that image is not important but how he treats her is more important, she insists that she`s right thinking this way. Been going to psychologists, therapists but she is so convinced that she feels that there is no way out for her and nobody understands her. Has anyone had a similar experience? Would really love to help her, don`t know what else to do except keep insisting seeking help. She`s refusing medication as they never seemed to help, these thoughts keep coming.
