Ive had very large natural breasts since my early teens. Ive suffered,bulling,teasing and ive been the subject of plenty of rude jokes and comments.As funny as it may seem it has worn very thin over the years and starts to effect you emotionally. Ive never felt sexy or attractive with my large breasts i use to dread the unwanted attention.Over the years the wear and tare of carrying my breasts arround has really took its toll on me emotionally,physically and mentally.I struggel with anxiety and depression. I hate the way i look. I struggle to excersice due to the weight of my breasts. I have been diagnosed with fibromaralgia which is a syndrome where a suffer with pain allover my body.I wake up feeling crippled with pain in my back,spin,hips and shoulders.I feel my breasts disable me in a way as they stop me from joining in with family things,going out dancing with friends. I struggle with clothes.I suffer with neck pain every single day and fungle infections under my breasts and friction burns from my bra. Also i have perminant dints in my shoulders from my bra with the weight of my breasts. I have been turned down three times by the NHS as my breasts aint big enough or i dont have a underlying illness.
Ive helped people in need when i can and i never ask for anything but this time i am desperate. I just want to enjoy my family time with my h2b and my children. I want to be able to get fit without having these big obsticals in my way. I just wsnt to feel confidant walking down the street with my head held high instead of looking at the floor.
