    Hey, I have body dysmorphia or an image disorder, but truth is I just see myself as a monster looks wise,, and whenever anyone brings up seeing my face or anything to do with how I look I instantly panic, My heart races, I start breathing heavy, my chest tightens up and i start shaking and crying. This can last all day, not just an hour or so and when I wake up in the morning it can still be there if I'm feeling really bad, I suffer with Depression aswell so it can spiral into that and I can be really not okay for a month sometimes longer with no hope, no appettite, no motivation, crying all the time and having anxiety attacks. I'm in the mist of having one now but it's subsiding to a point where I can type, I saw my Gp last week and he gave 2mg of diazepam to take whenever I get a bad attack, I took one a few days ago and it did nothing, so I took two yesterday evening as I was really bad crying my eyes out and panicking, but I got exhausted from panicking and crying before I took the two diazepam, so I think the sleepiness affect I got was from me being exhausted not the 4mg (two) diazepam, I've had ssrri's/snris in the past and they did **** so asked for anxiety (benzos) instead but I don't want to get addicted to them at a high dose, I also am terrified of weight gain so really don't like taking the chance anyway, and I am on Dianette (birth control) for my mild acne and that is making my emotions crazy! and i'm having to watch what I eat (which i do anyway) because that pill can make you gain weight...so I just don't know what to do ? Do my anxiety attacks last to long ?? or is it just because of he bdd and depression that heightens my emotions?

    I was diagnosed with Body dysmorphia aged 16, had the diagnoses taken away & given many years after, On Gp notes it states "believed to be suffering with body dysmorphia", I hate my eye colour + eyes & I used to be suicidal over it. Aged 18 I found out there are colour lenses So I have worn them for almost 3 years now, & they stopped me being suicidal. (Therapy + meds didn't help me) I needed a Physical change. I still hate my eyes but Know I cannot chnage them, but even when I try to wear sunglasses I still feel grotesque, so came to the conclusion that the rest of my face must be disgustingly ugly to, and have fixiated on My 'Jawline'. I need to talk to my Mum & possibly my GP about how I'd like to see a cosmetic surgeon so he can tell me why I'm ugly, In hope that he/she will be able to make me not look hideously ugly anymore, as I'm 21 and I just want my life back, How can I go about saying this to my Mum, GP, or any family member ? (baring in mind, everyone that knows me is totaly against me having any kind of surgery & tell me I am very pretty as I am, But I know I'm not + There's a lot of family problems that have been going on for yonks now to! so I don't want to sound selfish or like a burden) this is the best photo I have of my jawline, I think it's adding t my ugliness because it's not defined/square -angular (I don't take full face photo's because i hate how I look) http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/140...

I was diagnosed with body dysmorphia aged 16 - then got told I just had low self esteem, on Gp notes It says 'believed to be suffering with body dysmorphic syndrome' but I don't care what my diagnosis is anymore, or if I do even have one. Because I just want to change my face from ugly to attractive & live my life!, I was suicidal from aged 16 to 18 and a half, Then at 18 & a half I started wearing colour contacts to stop me being suicidal, no therapy cbt,erp, inpatient stays or meds helped, physicaly altering my apperance is what helped me 'Not' be suicidal. People who have seen my face tell me I'm pretty, some even said beautiful in the past lol and as people haven't seen my face for 3 years (due to me hiding under a snood) They compliment me on my figure (which people did alot even before i hid) - lower proportion of my face and hair. Yet I still feel majorly ugly and keep thinking a more defined jaw may make me attractive, what do you think? is it possible to get a defined jaw ? do I look ugly + un feminine from what you can see? Is my body okay?

I was diagnosed with BDD aged 16, then told I didn't have BDD, then I did , then I didn't, after a year or so I got told I just have low self esteem, My current diagnosis (by current I mean 2/3 years ago lol) is 'believed to be suffering with body dysmorphia'. I also hated/hate my hair + skin too, which I've tried to sort for years, using prescribed gels and antibiotics fo rmy skin all to no avail, I don;t use harsh chemicla son my skin, hardly ever wear face makeup, have radicaly changed my diet to an Ovo - Lacto one, and I excercise as much as possible, I don't smoke and hardly drink. My Gp's say "It's not that bad" though a dermatologist I paid to see privately (as my gp refused to refer me) said I have teenage skin? prescribed me gel that I've used for 8/9 months, which has made hardly any improvement, and told me it will get better in time, though I am 21 and have had bad skin since aged 16?. Any - who, I noticed a long time ago that If I just had a problem with my eyes I should be able to wear sunglasses instead of a snood I have hidden under for almost three years now :/ only thing stopping me would be my bad skin & hair, so I tried this years ago and I still felt immensley ugly! A few days ago I tried to wear sunglasses again to see if I'd look okay, suprise suprise I still didn't, and then it clicked Maybe my whole face is ugly too? not just my eyes : ( I started looking in detail at my Jaw and how undefined it is and thought maybe that was adding to my ugliness. I have been majorly depressed for days now crying for hours and in excruciating emotional pain, that I used to feel when I was suicidal between the age of 16 - 18 and a half. I only stopped being suicidal because I manged to find colour contact lenses,(should have mentioned that in the beggining sorry) no therapy or meds helped me neither did inpatient stays at young adult psych units. A physical change was what was needed to keep me here, and I thought I'd be okay with changing just my eye colour, but in my heart of hearts I knew I was/am still ugly, but that was better than being ugly + suicidal. So I am thankfull that the lenses worked!, I just want to be made not ugly? so I can live my life. I Never wanted to conisder it, But now Cosmetic surgery seems the way to go, even though I could end up looking weirder or the surgeon may tell me I'm 'too ugly' for him to fix and I can never look pretty. (feel like death if that was the case) I keep thinking about having a consultation with a surgeon who can tell me why I am so ugly, because people who have seen my face tell me I'm not, so though I don't want to hear it maybe if a surgeon provides evidence that I am ugly because of this this and so on .... Then maybe people will help me alter what I hate physicaly rather than tell me it's all in my head and force therapy on me that doesn't work! The worst outcome owuld be a surgeon telling me I am ugly, and there's no way of fixing it : ( then I'd feel hopeless, but If I don't take the risk I'll never know..You only live once! And I want to live not just exist and feel extreme pain about how I look anymore gone on for far too long!. I haven't taken a photo of my face in 5 years, but I took one recently with sunglasses on mainly with the camera angle focused on my Jaw. Can anyone else see how ugly I am and how weird and undefined my Jaw looks, do you think If I had it changed and more square and defined that it would look better. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/140... my cousin has a normal Jawline? as in I see a lot of people day to day with a similar jaw line, so to me mines abnormal. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/836...

I know if I lay in bed eat **** all and don't move, my stomach will shrink and then as soon as I eat again after a week of laying in bed, I'll gain fat because I've starved my body of food by laying in bed eating **** all, Plus my skin/hair and the rest of me wil look even s***** because of not eating well, moving or washing. I honestly have a plan in my own head to sleep as much as I can get up only to use the toilet, wash my face/body quickly, eat/drink then go back to bed, wake up to use the treadmill, eat/drink again at dinner time, then fall asleep/lay in bed, get up go on the treadmill again, back to bed then eat/drink at tea time and go back to bed for the rest of the night. I've been on meds before for bdd/depression and they did nothing to help, plus i've had all the cbt/erp,therapy all does Jack****, does it sound like i'm depressed again??? should I tell my gp, even though there's nothing he can do.

    Hi : ) I recieve both Incapacity benefit (long term) at middle care + low mobilty rates And Dla. I've had a mental health condition since I was 15 years old, to do with one aspect of my apperance which causes suicidal intensions if not dealt with, In the way I cope with it. And I have other less severe feelings towards other parts of myself (image wise) aswell. I have believed to be suffering from 'body dysmorphic disorder' On medical notes, As I fall into no other category fully. The Incapacity benefit and dla, able me to fund what I need, In order to cope, as without it I Instantly turn to suicide as my only option (as no therapy or medication has helped, only what I use?? to change a part of my apperance helps me, cope) Talk of Incapacity benfit being replace by ESA terrifies me, as even though I know I'm not lying about how I am. I don't know how a doctor filling out an assessment will see me through his eyes ? I've allways gotten really ill and in tears/depressed when ever I've had to re apply for incapacity benefit, Though my claim allways stays the same as they do see I'm unable to do certain things still. I'm almost 21 now and I've been ill + up and down like a yo -yo, since I heard about ESA replacing IB I'm confused as to what's happening to, Is inacapcity benefit being scrapped for long term claimants and short term claimants? or is it just being scrapped for those who are just trying to apply for IB? Also does anyone know how ESA is worked out, As in what Rate you recieve. Is it the same as Incapacity benefit: I.e, Low, mid and high care rates for CARE and then for MOBILITY ? I'm very confused so if anyone could give me an insight into it, It would help my anxiety/fear etc.. a bit. Thanks! Jade : )
