      I have BDD and am constantl asking myself about me: Am I good enough? Is everyone better looking then me? My mum tells me each person is kind of special, that I’m unique in my own special way. But I have terrible intrusive thoughts about my body that I can’t just brush aside. I struggle with things that remind me of my appearance and don’t know if anyone is actually attracted to me. I just really need to feel content with myself and stop asking am I good enough? I know I care way too much about my body but try to be good to myself and crowd out the negative thoughts but wonder am I worth it?
