While many are ready to admit what they don’t like about their bodies, those suffering from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) have an obsessive focus on their perceived body flaws. They can be hypercritical of even the slightest imperfection, often not even observable to others. This obsession leads to many suffering distress and anxiety, impacting their ability to function normally in daily life. Some frequently check the mirror, seek reassurance from others, or attempt to hide or fix their perceived flaws.
In some cases, BDD can manifest into an eating disorder. Obsessive thoughts about being thin lead to extreme dieting and anorexia, while conversely, some turn to food and binge eating, with or without purging, when they lose control.
