As well as treatment by professionals, you might find it beneficial to speak with others with BDD who understand what you are going through.
Support groups and peer support offer an opportunity to meet other people who also have BDD. Hearing about how other people have coped with similar feelings and experiences can be helpful and make you feel less isolated. You can find details of support groups for BDD on the following websites:
Alternatively you can contact Mind's Infoline or a local Mind to see what support there is in your area.
You can also access peer support online. Networks like Elefriends can be a good way of getting support at times when you don’t feel like seeing people face-to-face or if there aren't any groups nearby.
