Yesterday, I posted a question titled "Does anybody feel like Paleo isnt working?!" I proceeded to explain a meltdown I recently had, some numbers, and some facts about me...someone brought up a possibility for me to have developed slight body dysmorphia issues.
By definition Body Dysmorphic Disorder is when one is preoccupied with an imagined physical defect or a minor defect that others often cannot see.
Has anybody on PaleoHacks suffered from BDD? Did Paleo help you to recover from it, or any other disorders associated with body image, self esteem, etc? Did is change the way you though about yourself? When were you able to see yourself in a more loving, accepting way?
Please share your stories!!!
EDIT: I do realize BDD is a mental disorder, so let me clarify my question....While recovering from BDD, was Paleo part of the process? I know some say Paleo helped with their depression...so I figured Id see if Paleo helped with the more unusual self image problems.
