a short personal doc on my experience with body dysmorphia. this is a medically underdiagnosed condition whose comorbid disorders are major depressive disorder, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. it affects roughly 1 in 50 people in the us alone. it’s much more insidious than people realize, and its effects can be extremely debilitating. in the last few years i’ve been developing a concentrated effort to give it more exposure, because it matters, to me and to everyone who is affected by it.
