I mean hiiiiii, hello, bonjour, hola!
I hope you all had a great week!
Lets jump into it! BOOM!
I work in the healthcare field and I see some crazy people on a day-to-day basis literally!
&& perhaps this is why I have a major issue of concern that hurts my heart and I’m so serious, it really does.
I hope you want to know what it is, either way I’m going to share…
BODY DYSMORPHIA, yes a flaw that is either minor or imagined. But to the person, their appearance seems so shameful that they don’t want to be seen by anyone.
When you have body dysmorphic disorder, you intensely obsess over your appearance and body image, often for many hours a day. Your perceived flaw causes you significant distress, and your obsession impacts your ability to function in your daily life. You may seek out numerous cosmetic procedures or excessively exercise to try to “fix” your perceived flaw, but you’re never satisfied.
Now I don’t personally know anyone that suffers severely (although one friend may slightly be getting off her rocker) from this but just last week I saw a teenager, if I recall correctly she was sixteen, she came to get her medication then asked for a certain type of pills I cant remember the name, that would help speed up her metabolism because she wanted to lose weight. SO I looked at her keenly, she wasn’t overweight by no means and you could tell she was insecure by the way she carried herself. Whatever happened to good ole exercise and clean eating?
People out here, getting crazy talking about body wraps and all kinds of stuff. Please save your money go buy fruits and veggies, no pill, no wrap, is gonna last forever. Everyone can’t look the same, love yourself for who you are. If you are overweight take the necessary steps to better yourself. If you aren’t but think you are… Girl go eat some bacon but drink water LOL.
I’m not gonna sit behind my laptop and act like I have it all together when it comes to my body image. I do often relapse and think I’m oh so fat, but thank God for my support system full of members who will literally slap some sense into me. You see me exercising and eating healthy, let me assure you it isn’t to lose weight, I am maintaining a healthy lifestyle cause I have no intentions to live on medications in my old age. I am taking preventative measures so that I will be able to have longevity.
Remember this, health is wealth.
