Cosmetic surgery: Why I want it, and what a therapist told me. Friends are a different matter; they only recently found out about the BDD. I could tell she was upset about it — and worrying about how her hair would look — so I went to the shop and bought her a new can. There was nothing I could say or do to stop her. I always reassure her that I am. They were both really supportive. Liane became so angry — I think she felt that she was ugly compared to them.

'My girlfriend won’t let me see her naked'
This was only a couple of months into our relationship, and I was really frightened. The hardest thing for them to understand is the lack of intimacy between me and Liane. We met back in on Tinder — which Liane loved because she could control how she looked in the photographs. There was nothing I could say or do to stop her.
