From BrainBlogger: Look at Yourself
A wonderful article that delves into body image and perception in relation to BDD# Interesting read with excellent research data to consider# Take a look here–
Dissatisfaction with one’s appearance is not abnormal in itself, but in individuals suffering with BDD the distorted perception of oneself is extreme enough to impede their functioning in day to day life making it a candidate for a serious mental condition.
