Does your BDD apply to other people as well?

Postby attritionofmind » Sun Mar 05, 2017 10:00 am

Sometimes I feel other people look funny and I feel it may in part be part of my own BDD, cause when I am having BDD moments it is more pronounced in other people. Also, do you feel guilt over this? I do because I'm schizoaffective so when I feel like I'm thought broadcasting I'm afraid a little to offend them.

I hate this damn bdd $#%^. I had this problem as a teen, but then it went away and became more realistic once I had weight gain from antipsychotics, then I worked out and lifted weights and felt pretty good about my appearance, but then I sort of had a mental break down from a combination of trolling and alcohol and now it's back with a vengeance.

I've had my first drink in five days and I feel much better about my appearance, to be honest. I suffer from nightly drinking, I'm not going to call it alcoholism. But I get constant thought insertion and voices brainwashing me about a multitude of things, including my appearance, and the alcohol calmed it down. Perhaps moderation is key.

Yes, my BDD can carry over to other people. I'm always looking for flaws in other peoples faces and become fixated on it. :cry:

No, however I do tend to notice details and "flaws" on other peoples' faces. But I'm 10000x more forgiving about flaws on others.

I feel like I can see the beauty in other peoples' flaws, but never my own.
