It could be a reason, but i don't think it applies to every single user in the forum O.o (If i understood your post right)

People with BDD usually have had sexual abuse in their past. Does it cause social anxiety solely? no, but it does contribute.

You'd be surprised at the number of body builders that have BDD.

I don't know what the OP's question is, why delete it?

But about BDD, I think I have it, and my understanding of it for ME, is that BDD, and social anxiety, along with negative thinking are the symptoms of my disease, which is bad *** low self esteem/unworthiness...

i see the post from the TS is removed.. well anyways. i have bdd too.. and i been sexually abused.. so it could be the reason.. but i know from in the past i had short hair and always guyish clothes on.. and everybody called me a butch.. they were bullying me all the time.. so i changed really fast..
now in the present.. where i am now.. nobody bullies me because of my looks.. so im glad i am like this now.. just lil more feminine.. BUT! i am insecure about my looks too much.. its like an obsession, every spot on my face needs to get away before i leave the house. and i feel weird when i look into the mirror.. i can see the imperfections, nobody sees it, only me

I did sticky a thread here a while back:

B.D.D subject (body dysmorphia)

Would have been nice to see it with it's own forum.

I'm one of them btw, I strongly suggest it because it can work. "Mens sana in corpore sano" they said, some time ago (healty mind in healty body)

Strenuous exercise causes a cascade of hormonal reactions. Amongst those is that it triggers the release of endorphins. Endorphins are responsible for the "runners high"....endorphins are hormones that can make you feel happy!

This thread might be better in the OCD forum maybe?

I have BDD and I was abused as a kid. I also have an eating disorder/anorexia history. I've had some therapy which has helped quite a bit. I still see the imperfections and hate what I see but I can accept what I see isn't real now. It has helped a lot. I am a healthy weight at the moment, so deemed to be doing well, but in my mind it doesn't feel comfortable being this size or weight.

I have BDD- surprisingly, I didn't develop it until long after I was sexually abused;(when) I was brutally assaulted.
I was to undergo cosmetic surgery but it never happened and I still hate my face. I can't look at my own reflection without feeling completely disgusted by myself.

I do believe that the assault was also the root of my agoraphobia; and my confidence level is nonexistent because of BDD.
It's a vicious cycle.
I need confidence to go outside and get a job.
I need to feel self-worth and work to get confidence, because at this point in time, I can't get it from doing anything else, it seems.
No job for me. No nothing.

Well, I do feel sorry for you guys, because my guess is, this opinion of yourself is completely out of your control. I do have one question though, at least for the one's who think this out of other people's comments, i.e. "you're fat/ugly".

What do you think of people who say the opposite, who compliment your appearance, or specifically what you hate?

Compliments often come off as being sarcastic or just said out of pity.
I'd like to think that people are being sincere, and I'm sure they aren't trying to be mean but I just can't believe them because the way I see myself must be so vastly different.

Even if it's the sincerest it can possibly be, no hint of deception in the person's tone or presentation...... you still think it's sarcasm or pity?

Yes- I automatically think that way.
I'll still say thankyou and try not to be offended but it just feels wrong to me.

What would it take you to change your mind?
