HealthfulChat is offering this portion of the web site faithfully to body dysmorphic disorder peer support.  In order to receive the caring support you deserve, HealthfulChat is presenting you with a Body Dysmorphic Disorder Chat Room, body dysmorphic disorder forums, and a body dysmorphic disorder social network.

 

If the mere thought of looking into a mirror sends you into a panic, since you are terrified as to what you may see, or if you are seeing an overweight body even though your friends and family tell you how thin you are, you may be suffering from an illness called body dysmorphic disorder. Although HealthfulChat always recommends that its members receive proper medical attention, we also believe that a powerful support network of peers in the same position increases the chances of a full recovery. This Body Dysmorphic Disorder Chat Room, body dysmorphic disorder forums and the body dysmorphic disorder social network were designed specifically for you. HealthfulChat encourages you to enter this body dysmorphic disorder peer support community to begin to meet, greet, share and support today.

 

First and foremost to remember is that you are not alone. "It's estimated that Body Dysmorphic Disorder affects 1 in 50 people, mostly teenagers and 20-somethings..."1. Studies have also shown that being a perfectionist and having low-self-esteem are major factors in developing this difficult disorder. Body dysmorphic disorder is very mis-diagnosed, because, not only do doctors know very little about the symptoms, but those suffering have such a low feeling of self-worth that they tend to play down their symptoms. Unfortunately, if not treated, Body Dysmorphic Disorder can lead to other mental health concerns, such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and even excessive hair pulling. Due to so many people being improperly diagnosed due to self-esteem issues, and the possible mental health repercussions, HealthfulChat created this portion of the web site to help those suffering find a safe and welcoming place where body dysmorphic disorder can be discussed openly but anonymously with a

group of peers who can truly understand what one another is going through.

 

We encourage you to join this body dysmorphic disorder online support network, which includes a Body Dysmorphic Disorder Chat Room, body dysmorphic disorder forums, and a body dysmorphic disorder social network, so that along with any professional help you may be receiving, the support of your peers can further aid to your recovery. Or perhaps you are on the road to recovery and wish to help others - this is the right place for you.  Welcome.
