I was told by my husband that I have body dysmorphic disorder. I know that Im ugly and overweight, but my friends and husband say I'm not.
When I go out in public I hear people saying that I'm ugly or are laughing, and I want to not care what they think, but know it'll take alot to overcome this!

All of us get hurt with certain comments,because some people are rude. You are in my prayers. Listen to your husband. Have faith and God bless you.

Thank you Marcie for your support :)

Hi Cindybelle. I'm so sorry that you feel this way but know all too well because I suffer from BDD. There is a fantastic book called The Broken Mirror by Katherine Phillips, MD. She is a physician out of Rhode Island that has done extensive research on BDD. It is important to get a diagnosis from a professional that works with people suffering from this horrible disorder. Once diagnosed you can determine the best treatment, which should include counseling(exposure therapy/cognitive behavioral therapy) and/or medication. This is a very real disease that can be helped, but it will take some effort on your part to be proactive in order to see any change. Take care and know that there are many of us struggling with this debilitating affliction. Love and prayers.
