Great, I want botox because I have a mental health problem that affects the way I see my body. So I get asked questions to prove I do not have this mental health illness. But of course I do because I have checked the internet and know what to say. The person asking me is not trained in psychiatry or psychology so accept my answers and the firm will encourage them to do so in the name of profit.

Thankfully I do not like the view in the mirror but not prepared to go down the botox/surgery route. But others are not like me.

The niece of 'im indoors is almost certainly anorexic. I can see it, friends have asked me if she is, but her parents cannot see it. She manages to keep her desire to stay ultra thin just about in control and not push her over the edge. We do not see her that often and giving her a welcome hug is like holding a lightly covered skeleton but at times it has felt like I am hugging her fleshless bones.

But to her parents and husband this is normal. As her Mum said "A" always go into Norwich by bus as she cannot use a bus. Plenty of buses from her town into the city, on the edge of the village is a park and ride so this person who complains about her Mum adding to global warming with her new tumble dryer uses a car. It is obvious to me a sign of mental health probs that she cannot use a bus. To her Mum is it as normal as saying she could use the bus but prefers the car.

So Superdrug refuse you botox. What do you do?

Or far, far worse you buy it off the internet and do it yourself or get friend to do it.

Botox used to be a bit of a taboo subject
Nowadays nobody raises an eyebrow

At my age I try not to raise an eyebrow. Doing so adds to wrinkles sigh
