BDD, Shame & Anxiety

I want to share this article from Broadly that details the seriousness of Body Dysmorphic Disorder. The information from professionals and from recovering individuals explains the complexities and a brief glimpse into the internal turmoil of BDD.

BDD is commonly misunderstood to be a focus on one’s appearance, but it is so much more. Extreme cases of BDD can prevent someone from engaging in daily activities, contributing to quality of life deterioration. Often, individuals with BDD suffer from other anxiety disorders as well and effective treatment addresses both. There are growing resources for BDD sufferers and symptoms should not be ignored.

If you think you may suffer from BDD you can learn more here & if you are concerned about a friend who exhibits signs of BDD you can learn more here.
