    I used to have BDD also and it pretty much ruined my life for a few years. I almost killed myself because I hated how I looked sooo much, i can understand what your going through. But you can get better, i'm proof of that. The best advice I can give is to GO SEE A PROFESSIONAL you CAN'T beat this on your own, it's a disease. Some people improve with therapy, but most, like myself, need to go on medication. Don't listen to people who say you can beat it yourself, don't need medication it's a scam etc. They truly don't know what they're talking about, it is a disease that alters your perception. Its not just something you can fight, no matter how much will you think you have. Losing weight and exercise WON'T help because you will never look good enough, your perception of yourself is the problem Also check out the book called "The broken mirror" you can order it online. And again you must go see a professional, theres no way around it. You will in time feel better about yourself and your supposed "flaw" than you ever thought possible. Good luck
