Body Dysmorphic Disorder - July 18th 2011, 08:29 AM

Hello, all! I'm wondering if anyone here is familiarized/suffering from a psychiatric condition called "body dysmorphic disorder" (or BDD, for short). I haven't been officially diagnosed, but I'm nearly 100% positive that I suffer from it (my slight/"imagined" defects being my hair and my head-to-body ratio (size-wise)). My reason for posting this is to inquire about other people's compulsions/obsessive thoughts/behaviorisms so that I can better understand the nature of this condition and seek effective treatment options--so if anyone wants to talk about this in detail, please let me know. The compulsive nature of this problem is literally stripping me away of all sanity/any ounce of happiness that I might have had...and I just desperately want it to stop.

Thanks in advance for the support.
