BDD awareness day - May 17th

Today is BDD awareness day!

For those who do not know, BDD stands for Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and is more serious than people think. It is sometimes placed under the eating disorder umberella, which includes Anorexia and Bulimia, and it can be linked to those conditions, but it's roots can often lie with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

Earlier this month, a guest blogger shared her experiences with BDD, and more information about it can be found here:

If you suspect that you may indeed suffer from BDD or that a friend or relative may do, please do not go it alone and seek medical help.

I hope that the readers of Project52 will join me in talking about BDD using the hashtag #BDD on twitter. Don't let this condition go on ignored. Let's talk.
