Hi everyone.

I'm suffering with body dysmorphic disorder which has caused other mental issues, such as anorexia, depression, anxiety and OCD. I suffer from PTSD and am bipolar.

I'm here because I want to desperately to get better. My OH and I are trying for a baby and I need to get better for him and my baby; they are my motivation for being here and they are why I signed up. I want to learn to love myself for the first time in my whole life.

I think that being here and trying my hardest will hopefully help me with that.

Thanks for reading,

~Alex

I've been a member for about an hour...was waiting for someone to greet me or say hi...I'm not going to make you wait that long...so welcome and hello!

I'm a mental nightmare at the moment but I keep praying and trying to keep in mind my Higher Power (whom I choose to call God) won't give me more than I can handle...Kudos too you for being so "self-aware" of your conditions and expressing such a strong willingness to work towards better...Dreams are just Dreams until you write them down...then?...they become..."Goals"....Hang in there Alex!

Hi and welcome to you both, sorry I missed your introductions, was writing on other threads through my little tablet. Hope you both find help and support here. It's rather quiet here this time in the forum, with so many members already gone to bed for the night. I'm in Canada so only 8 pm for me here. Just on for a bit, I've been cleaning house most of the day.

Welcome to the forum, Alex. :hi:
I hope you find this forum helpful and I hope we can support you.
Loving yourself isn't easy if you've spent a lot of time struggling with mental health and self-esteem issues. It's a lifelong task, I think. Little steps - you'll get there. :)
