I diagnosed myself with BDD :(

Recommended Posts

Well today i noticed that i went to the mirror 3 times every 10 minutes or so tongue.gif.And i remembered that thread about BDD,i searched around and it seems its some serious disorder or something and i need a psychiatrist (not psychologist note) tongue.gif.Anyone with similar experiences?

Whats BDD? is it body dismorphia...? if it is i also think i have it. Sometimes i just stand staring at myself for ages until sometimes my face becomes a blur. But then again sometimes mirrors our my mortal enemies and i dont go near one.

i actually have a small mirror i carry around in my purse at all times...first it was to be used for lip gloss check ins...but now, it's used to peruse my face lots and lots and lots...but i find that if i only see a small area at a time, it's not as depressing....weird but true

I definitely have BDD hard core...i had it befor I ever had noticeable acne..i think if i hadn't then my skin would look amazing now but docs wreaked havoc on my good skin. anyway, I truly beleive my scars and skin look pretty bad I know it's not severe...I don't even have acne anywmore except for three tiny tiny surfacepimples and some blackheads but I'm upset about old scars and I can spens literally well over five hours just looking in the mirror. my mom tells me my scars are not that noticeable but i just assume she's lyingt. And some acting teacher told me I shouldn't be afarid to use my looks and no door would be closed to be based on my looks. I of course think these people are hugely wrong and crazy. My skin looks awful to me

I'm the opposite... I avoid seeing myself at all costs (sometimes it's just impossible though) or I get really depressed. When I pass a mirror, I do my best to look at the ground and anything else that doesn't remind myself. I even went a couple of months with putting on makeup without a mirror, and I guess I'm talented because my brutally honest friends said it looked the same as it's always been. I wish it was acceptable to wear brown paper bags over your head. Wouldn't that be great? tongue.gif

I just diagnosed myself with NLCAS (No longer cares about skin)

It feels great to have it.

OMG, I thought it was just me! Whenever I notice a mirror, or mirror-like object (window, spoon, cell phone screen) I just have to see how my face looks in the particular kind of light. I just carry around a mirror now.

Bleh.Most people,clear or not,will look at themselves if they pass a mirror or window.I am one of those people. tongue.gif

But..there's a time when that's not all normal.For example,I will spend time touching and picking at my face at school,I can't help it sometimes.And I will look at myself in the bathroom mirror looking for,and noticing my flaws.I don't know if I have BDD,but it sure seems close.If I see a mirror I will inspect and look at my face all around,and take in the fact that I have bumps.I will pop for a while in the bathroom mirror.

Like..My day feelsgreat,I've forgotten about acne for a bit.Then I look at my nasty ugly acne in the mirror.Sure burst my bubble.
