Has this forum has become a haven for narcissism?

The whole point of bdd is a disorder of distorted appearance, and how you feel internally. Really though it's become more about vanity, lack of esteem/narcissism and peoples life stories.

- Used to go out nightly, got a bit of redness so now I don't go out anymore.

- People posting about crap they get from others about their looks, and his they want to "physically harm them in some way", yep that's narcissism. Also ...

Truth.

You really are beautiful when you smile. It begins in the eyes and radiates outward.

My BDD story and thoughts

Hi everyone,
I have been writing here before as you might know. I'm a 23 year old female who will turn 24 this summer. I got the diagnose Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in spring 2018 as I unexpectedly started to feel obsessed with my hair/haircut after cutting my own hair in my student apartment and didn't feel satisfied with the result. I got so obsessed with my hair and wanting it to look alright again ...

Feeling suicidal when watching videos of myself

I'm an average looking girl. Not pretty or ugly, just ######6 average looking. I watch videos of myself sometimes just to "remember" what I really look like from other people's view and I never feel completely happy with the way I look on any of the videos or pictures I have on my computer. I have always wanted to be beautiful and I watch these videos of me with the hope of maybe be able ...

My friend has bdd and he broke up with his gf

Okay, so he broke up with his gf, who he had been dating for a long time.

I met him online just after the break up online.
Anyway, he doesn’t want to go on. He doesn’t want to get over her. He doesn’t want to live anymore.
And while I can understand that because the relation they had was really so great, I don’t want him to give up on life. He is so talented, ...

How do you cope with BDD at Work, School and University?

Hello all, this post is for any PsychForum users that are either currently in University (College), school or are trying to hold down a job with Body Dysmorphic Disorder. I find that my mood is set upon looking in the mirror, and it fluctuates daily - good looking one day, ugly the next. It can also fluctuate within the day it's so weird! One minute I think I am disgusting, the next time I look ...

Ideas of reference question

"In psychiatry, delusions/ideas of reference form part of the diagnostic criteria for psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia, delusional disorder, bipolar disorder (during the elevated stages of mania), as well as schizotypal personality disorder. To a lesser extent, it can be a hallmark of paranoid personality disorder, as well as body dysmorphic disorder

So lately I've been doing this course at another college, alls been going well so far, and I've seen someone who I like ...

Anyone else here too afraid to open up?

Like you can't even tell your GP about it so they can prescribe something to you or refer you for treatment, or maybe you think your problem is too 'minor' (which it's not) to even ask for help? GPs at my local place are usually quite understanding, but just like having an embarrassing medical problem you don't want to tell them about, I have a hard time telling them.

How would you even go about ...

First Time Posting about BDD

Hi, this is the first time I've posted about my BDD and I've never spoken about a lot of this.

I'm a 32 year old man from London. I've been in the mental health system since I was 24. I've been previously diagnosed with schizotypal PD and depression, and I'm on an anti-depressant. I was recently diagnosed with BDD. It makes a lot of sense to me. I've been anxiously repulsed by my body since ...
