Hi, my friend is now residing in Toronto. She is always bothered about her appearance. I used to remember that she stands in front of the mirror and complain that she is too skinny and she looks like a devil. Every boy in my class used to make fun of her and somebody told that she needed feeding and tidying up. She is an insecure girl, whose mother is too busy with her life, and never find time for her daughter. She is not close to her mother to tell her feeling. Her father left them 3 years ago. She has an elder brother who is staying away from home with his girlfriend. So she is under depression from her childhood onwards. Now she is always disappointed in her appearance, last day she tried plucking her eyes, saying that it's not looking good. I understood that she is suffering from body dysmorphia disorder. I planning to take her for body dysmorphia treatment from a clinic in Toronto. Is there any other method I can try to reduce her feeling? Please help me out.
Hey, I'm in a relationship with this guy for the past five years. We've faced a lot on the go like we had a few breakups in between. It was a pretty good year we had together since our last patch up! Last month he proposed to me, we are getting married by the coming May. Deep inside me, I feel insecure, because I intentionally adjusted a lot to be in this stage. Somewhere I love him very much! Sometimes I hate even his presence and I feel to get rid of him! At times, I fail to tolerate him. Even then I adjusted and acted like a fool just to keep this and to avoid another breakup. I have an OCD past, so I'm afraid whether I'm obsessed with this relationship or I have ROCD! I don't know what I've been through, tensed, afraid, self-harming! Apart from every issue, we love each other. I don't know but I'm worried not about getting married but about the success rate(Maybe it is because we had the freedom to leave when we had a relationship and marriage something more complex )! To sort out our existing problems, I have been to a couple's counseller, after a detailed examination and talk session he referred me to an OCD therapist in that same clinic! I postponed the appointment as I felt it is bad to hide such things from my bf! But I don't dare to disclose everything to him too! I need a suggestion, do I need to tell about my OCD therapy treatment to him or not? I need a precise suggestion because more than him I need peace of mind now!
