Reaching out, getting support and talking to someone about what you're feeling or thinking can be tricky sometimes, can't it?




Reaching out, getting support and talking to someone about what you're feeling or thinking can be tricky sometimes, can't it?. There's lots to consider: is this the right person to tell?; is it the right time?; what will I say?; what if I get upset?; what about their response?
This can sometimes put us off reaching out and getting support. The little info-graphic below can help take you through this process and move you towards getting the help and support you need and deserve. 

I hope you find the poster above useful. Of course, we have therapists and counsellors her at Talking EDs too who yo can talk to and who are here to listen. All therapists and counsellors and experienced and fully qualified. Just get in touch if you wish to find out how we can help.

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER: What is it?

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER
As we said yesterday, this week in Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. This is a national awareness week and the theme this year is Body Image.
See Monday's post to see what we are doing this week. We will also be posting everyday this week on Facebook, Twitter and the blog about Body Image and BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder).
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition related to Body Image where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others.

Having BDD does not mean you are vain or self-obsessed. It can be very upsetting and have a big impact on your life. Low mood, anxiety, emotional dysregulation, stress, trauma, self-harm and eating disorders are some of the other conditions that can co-occur with BDD.
Some of the symptoms of BDD include:

Focus on.... Anorexia Nervosa

Focus on.... Anorexia Nervosa


The term ‘anorexia nervosa’ is itself misleading and generally considered a misnomer.
‘Anorexia’ implies the individual has lost all interest in food, never hungry and has no appetite. Yet, this is rarely the case. The opposite is more accurate of anorexia. 

The person experiencing anorexia is not only very interested in food and frequently very hungry, but as weight continues to decrease and the person reaches low-weight stages AN, his/her preoccupation and obsession with food becomes overwhelming. 

Nevertheless, the person will do everything in their power to deny and ignore these feelings & sensations & not permit him/herself to eat. This is a particularly important characteristic of AN, along with the individual’s attempt to strictly control food and eating, with great time & effort.
The question of ‘what is Anorexia Nervosa?’ is a difficult one to answer given particularly complex & multidimensional nature of the il…
