Heidi's Journey

I'm Heidi, I'm 29, I am a nurse. I ride horses and I spend my spare time on my partner's sheep station.

I think I'm a healer, if someone has problems, I'm the one who has to fix them so I think, I just like helping people.

Once I actually had the surgery, I was like oh my god why did I not do this sooner.

I was bullied my whole childhood by friends, by my brothers and people at school – boys at school. It was just really nasty and it just started to eat away at me. I didn't want to leave my house. I felt like everyone was always looking at me, judging me. I would never let anyone stand side onto me because I didn't like them looking at me. I just wasn't happy at all with the way I looked and I just thought "how can I go on for the rest of my life living like this." It just ate me alive and so once I actually had the surgery, I was like oh my god why did I not do this sooner.

I always thought plastic surgery was 'plastic', 'fake' or 'Barbie'. There was no positive thing about it. Once I had the surgery I thought, it's not plastic or fake it can be completely natural.

People that don't know me have no idea at all. I can leave the house without makeup and I can just go to the shops for half the day, not worrying about people looking at me. I can just do my own thing and do my shopping. I can go to work and I can just do my normal day-to-day routine without having to worry that there's someone there "is he looking at me?", and that's what I wanted, I just wanted to feel normal and I do.
