The BDD Foundation are currently working on compiling a book about people’s experiences of living with BDD. The desire is to provide people who are struggling with a sense of hope and some practical advice on how to manage and even move beyond the distressing symptoms and behaviours related to their BDD. We need your help in order to make this vision a reality. Please consider contributing your story, which can be anything from a few hundred to a few thousand words. In this way, we can turn our difficult experiences into positive action for others. If you are interested, please contact Nicole on firstname.lastname@example.org or Sergio at email@example.com and we will provide you with further details. Contributions can be anonymous if you wish and you will retain full editorial rights and final approval. Thank you for helping us to support people with BDD and their loved ones in this way.
