Hello all, im crying as i type this and recently contemplated committing suicide because the body dysphoria is just getting severe and severe. im 5'2 and a half, 5'3 on a good day and recently been taking in as much information about LL as I can but unfortunately even if i go through LL id still be short (5'5) i just feel Id rather be dead than to be a walking embarrassment of myself. im not a ugly guy neither, not to be conceited but i think i have a handsome face. it just looks odd in my short small frame. my dream height is 6'0 but that is impossible. first of all, id look like a t-rex and the tallest i could be without risking ability to walk is 5'7 and even that is a bit overboard but i wouldnt let no other surgeon other than dr.paley make me that tall but thats a pipe dream because his way too expensive. i dont know what to do. if im not going to be atleast 5'10 i cant live with myself. i feel emasculated everyday. literally the size of a average 3rd grader
Okay, listen up: I'm the same height as you are (161cm/5'28) and I once committed suicide but was too stupid to do it right and they found me before I ended up with brain damage.
Some time later, I found out about LL and it has become the solution to my life issues. In contrast to you, I'm not crying as I type, but I'm sitting here waiting for my clinic to schedule my first of two surgeries and I'm quite in shock that someone is thinking about doing the same mistake that I did. There is always a way out, there is always hope! Okay? Do not let the daily exclusion or discrimination bring you down. My proportions are not very LL friendly to begin with, but even I can and will become 5'6 without looking odd. Maybe your proportion are better and you can pull off even more.
I know, 5'6 is not 5'10, but you really only need to reach 170cm/5'6 to get out of the "too short area". This is the breaking point for easier dates and more respect from other men.
LL can be cheap. Go to Russia or India (like I do). I'm a graduate student at university and even I could raise the money for it.
Do NOT kill yourself - break your legs and start a new life!
Edit: How old are you? Maybe HGH could help you and you won't need any surgery at all!
Edit2: You're only 19 - perfect
