I'm Ashamed to Admit It

I really don't think I am a true case of BDD because mostly those are girls who are ultra skinny and actually very beautiful.  I am old.  And I'm NOT PRETTY.  Really and truly.  people laugh at me because of how I look. 

They say I have it because I focus on my looks all the time.  I have had a few plastic surgeries, and wasn't happy with the results.  I think one problem is that I'm a compulsive overeater.  If I wasn't then I would look a lot better.

I am glad to hear you are making progress. :) <br />
And good luck with the diet, I am also going to try to loose weight over this summer.

Thanks for the comment. I know I have this, and I am on medication for my depression. I recently started a new med which helps me a lot. <br />
And I started dieting with Weight Watchers, and am slowly losing weight. This helps too.<br />
Of course, I do wish I could look 20 years younger...

While i cannot reply with any certainty, as i have never seen you, just the way you speak about yourself, sounds as though you could have. You should talk to a doctor who will be able to offer advice as to whether they think you are or not.
