Trig self harm and BDD

curious if anyone harms themselves just because of their BDD psymptoms? (I don't mean cutting, just other things to the body)

I hit myself a lot, and pull at my skin.

scream at my body and tell it it's useless

scratch myself

I do. I pinch myself and pick at it and pull hair out and generally donít try and keep myself comfortable if you know what I mean. Iím covered in bruises most of the time. I feel like I have ruined my body with being so many different weights, self harm, other things...it was all started when I was so young I donít feel like Iíve ever Ďhadí my body to myself. I often wonder what my body would look like if none of the awful things had happened.

I really wish it was that simple (just to get a new body, I mean).

I'd get a dolphin one

I do sometimes but its pretty rare.

I used to pick a lot on my face skin.

Years ago I remember a friend of my mother who asked her if I had scarification disorder or sth like that because I had a scar on my face that seemed pretty visible, i didnt really care of it.

Hurting myself will just make my problem worse.
Again I don't know if I have BDD or if its just depression linked to the med I am taking, in addition to my anxiety.

Take care of you.
