The problem, of course, isn't your body but your perception of your body. In another post, you spoke of feeling in a cycle of depression - that tends to create pervasive negative thinking about everything - what is termed "Distorted Thinking" or "Twisted Thinking" in the cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) books.

Something to bring up with your doctor/therapist?
Depression itself is called a cyclic state, because of the tendancy to 'think bad thinks' 'feel bad due to thinking bad things' 'thinking only bad things due to feeling bad' (supported by research) 'feeling bad' etc

Hormones affect neurotransmitters and vice versa, and that can affect mood and emotional reactivity in susceptible individuals.

It happens in men, too. It's just more noticeable in women.
