We all have days when we think we don’t look our best or feel insecure about a particular aspect of our appearance. But if you catch yourself spending an unhealthy amount of time obsessing over, concealing, or attempting to correct a perceived flaw, you might have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Around one in every 50 individuals continue to live with BDD in silence. While the condition affects all genders and ages, most cases begin in early adolescence.
If you suffer from body dysmorphia, you may notice a huge gap between your perception of your body and what others tell you. Even if certain aspects of your appearance seem ugly or abnormal to you, your loved ones may not necessarily see you the same way. Most people acknowledge that their worries are baseless but can still not escape the anxiety and stress their body image causes them.
If this sounds like you or someone around you, do not be quick to label yourself as crazy or self-obsessed. BDD is a real psychiatric issue, and treatment is available to recover from it. Keep reading to learn more about the disorder and how to deal with BDD in the best possible way.
