Think. feel. act. Body Dysmorphia.
Have you ever looked in a mirror and become fixated on a pimple or a scar or other flaw on your skin? Or been suddenly consumed by the idea that your nose looks weird? Now, imagine that this is all you saw every time you looked in the mirror. Imagine feeling convinced that these flaws were the only things other people saw when they looked at you. With all of this leading to feelings of shame, self-hatred, and overly-critical thoughts about your appearance. And when these thoughts and feelings become time-consuming and begin to take over your daily life — this is body dysmorphic disorder.
