    I was diagnosed with BDD

    and depression in 2010. I had been seeing a therapist weekly throughout 2009 without any improvement. I tried several different anti-depressants and sleep meds and I still continue on Zoloft to this day, as it brought me back to normal. My second therapist really tuned into...

    I have BDD and it destroys my life.

    Everyone I've ever loved Has left me I literally have no one in my life anymore. No friend to talk to. I sit all alone in despair everyday and the saddest thing about it all is I try to reach out to people. I try to make friends as hard as it is and everyone either rejects me or...

    Mine personally surrounds my weight.

    I lost a stone and half in 2 1/2 months. I think about my weight the moment I wake up, to the moment I go to bed. I sit in a particular way to make my legs look smaller in case anyone looks at them. It consumes every thought I have. I blame my weight for my last relationship...

    I've had it since junior high school.

    I was constantly bullied for being ugly but I'm told that now, in my senior year of highschool that I'm not even close to how I think I am. I am not on any meds and I'm not seeing anyone about this but I'm confident that I'm starting to see improvement if only in slight.

    I have BDD. I am going to be assessed

    for BDD next week. I already know I have it. I'm reading a book now and it sounds like me. Basically it's a person that's preoccupied with a imagined or real flaw for an extensive amount of time a day which also can affect their daily functioning. So in my case I'm...
