I struggle with a condition called " Body Dysmorphic Disorder" where I view myself as unattractive at times (when others say that I'm fine. Beautiful, in fact). Anyone else have BDD?
Sometimes, I think that I’m hideous. Others say that I am attractive.
It’s a form of mental illness, and I will be receiving therapy for it in a couple of weeks. One thing that it has done, is hinder my life and has prevented me from socializing on many occasions. Which sucks, as I’m a social individual and I like being around people.
Anyhow, this is the first time that I’ve admitted this to anyone here.
Those with BDD, how do you cope?
