I was very successful, had everything going for me then suddenly in the last 2 years my BDD( which was subtle throughout my life) has crippled me, i can't leave the house. My BDD is directly related to the imperfections of my SKIN ( everyone thinks i have great skin). I know I'm good looking, even better than average, but my mind likes to obsess over crazy stuff and over exaggerate small stuff, i can't out rationalize it! My psychiatrist has said that BDD or OCD can become so severe that it becomes similar to delusional behavior ( Psychosis). Is this true?
Doctors have put me on Prozac and Abilify, as a result.
IS ANYONE ON MEDICATION FOR BDD AND HAS ANYONE EVER BEEN CURED WITH MEDICATIONS????
