Default Medication and accepting being ugly

At the age of 28 I am deeply considering going back to school to obtain a Masterís in Speech Language Pathology, and plan to continue taking medication. I am hoping that this will make it easier to concentrate on my schoolwork and get high marks. I take Wellbutrin XL (a stimulant) once a day, by the way.

My fear is that my meds will make me feel okay about being ugly, and I donít want that at all. I am set on getting surgery overseas in the future to correct some major flaws on my face (such as a receding jawline), and as much as I want to feel better, Iím worried the meds will make me lose sight of that goal (if that makes sense).

I value your input. Thanks!

((((icebear)))) Remember that you're probably not as ugly as you think you are. You can still get your surgery, if you want, but please be careful. I wish you good luck with your studies.

I think it's a pretty common notion that women have about themselves...at any rate, you're not alone with this belief...I've had like random women at work tell me straight on that they think they are ugly...ugly is a pretty strong word you know...at any rate, feeling ugly is a distressing feeling...
