Default BDD?

I didn't really know where to post this. BDD is "body dysmorphic disorder." It is generally considered a form of OCD, with the obsessions/compulsions focused on a body part or parts. It can also be confused with many eating disorders as I guess should be obvious (because of the issues with appearance). Like eating disorders, it has a horrible impact on self-esteem.

I haven't exactly been diagnosed with anything exact yet, but my therapist is now saying it looks like BDD may be what I have.

I was wondering if there's anyone else on here with BDD and how they've coped or are coping with it. Any suggestions? I could so greatly use something. I feel like I'm banging my head against a wall (excuse the cliche).

yeah...it's something like you focus on one part of your body, like your nose, you think it's ugly even though it's perfectly proportinal?

i read about it in Seventeen Magazine...
