We are living at a time when looking your best is the focal point of a lot of people’s lives. But how far would you go to achieve the ‘perfect’ body?
This is Jacqui Ryland. A 29-year-old mum from Worcester whose self obsession can be backed up by the hundreds of selfies she takes every single day, reports The Sun.
Jacqui gets sent a whole host of luxurious and expensive gifts from strangers across the globe such as wide screen TV’s, Apple Mac’s, and even a £5,000 Rolex watch.
But the body responsible for this endless flurry of lavish luxury comes at a price – she injects herself everyday with the deadly human growth hormone (HGH).
Human growth hormone apparently helps to regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and possibly heart function.
Although the abuse of HGH can lead to a series of serious side effects and can ultimately result in diabetes or the creation of cancerous tumours.
Speaking on Channel 5’s Body Freaks: Make Me a Perfect 10, Jacqui said:
Every morning I inject growth hormone. The side effects mean your heart can grow, which is dangerous.
It makes your skin look better, makes you look younger and your nails and hairs grow and shed fat.
The side effects are that your heart can grow… and if you have a cancerous cell in your body you are going to multiply that cell at a really quick rate. Is it addictive? Yes, because the results you get are addictive.
If I stop taking it, after the two weeks when it’s leaving your body, you put weight on easier, you feel more tired and you feel less positive and more depressed.
I have been told it is crazy and a massive risk. But if someone tells me not to do something, nine out of ten times I will go and do it.
It’s an addiction. I don’t think I’ll ever stop. Until I’m dead. Then I’ve got no choice.
Jacqui has also gone under the knife for three boob jobs, having her first one at age 17 because she ‘hated everything about herself’ including her ‘flat chest’.
Even when her second implants ruptured she felt compelled to get another one ‘out of vanity’.
But she claims every time she has another job done she just wants to take it ‘to the next level’.
Well, I’m done. Do what you like with your body but this just seems like an incredibly dangerous attempt to metamorphosize into a false and unrealistic interpretation of perfect.
